Multi element conodont species and an ecological interpretation of the lower osagean lower carboniferous conodont zonation from mid continent north america



Multi element conodont species and an ecological interpretation of the lower osagean lower carboniferous conodont zonation from mid continent north america



Micropaleontology (New York) 29(4): 404-429



In the BCS (Burlington Carbonate Shelf), low diversity of conodonts in the basal Gnathodus punctatus Zone reflects its deposition in the unstable, shallow-water/nearshore environment. Increasing diversity to within the overlying Doliognathus latus Zone resulted from the transgression of the warm, tropical sea producing a more stable deep-water/offshore environment. Faunal diversity declines upward to within the G. bulbosus Zone because of the upward growth of the BCS and/or regression of the sea producing a restricted nearshore shallow-water environment. Conodont zonation in the BCS reflects these environmenal changes, evolution and migration. Parts of several conodont zones may have been deposited contemporaneously.
