About this book

Language: English

This volume will draw the attention of everyone interested in the fascinating diversity of ancient ecosystems such as reefs and shell accumulations in the Palaeozoic, whose difficulty of study rests primarily on its multidisciplinary position crossing numerous geological disciplines. Their facies characterization is, like many other biosedimentary structures, a process that requires the acquisition and integration of a wide and multiscale diversity of observations, which include field (global geometries), sample (fabrics), and thin-section (textures) scales.

One of the messages of this collection of papers is the wide diversity of sedimentary geometries and facies displayed by Palaeozoic reefs, shell accumulations, and transitional composite deposits. This book touches on some of the major issues at this stage of development in the field: the major climatic, environmental and evolutionary factors that controlled the Palaeozoic development of shell accumulations and reefs.
