        Few non-experts have heard of it, but the Great Ordovician Biodiversity Event (also known as the Ordovician Radiation) was second only to the Cambrian Explosion in its importance to the early history of life on earth. Over the course of 25 or so million years, the number of marine genera around the world quadrupled, including new varieties of sponges, trilobites, arthropods, brachiopods, and. @article{osti_, title = {Basin analysis and petroleum potential of Michigan Basin: deposition and subsidence history from Middle Ordovician (Trenton Formation) to Early Devonian}, author = {Nurmi, R.D.}, abstractNote = {The history of the Michigan basin (Early Ordovician to Early Devonian) is that of a nonuniformly subsiding basin, with the Michigan basin, at times, nearly disappearing.

The Graafwater Formation marks the end of Early Ordovician rifting. It is a blanket of quartz sandstone and mudstone that accumulated when fault-controlled subsidence had ceased and the rifts were yoked together (Fig.

).The accumulation is thickest ( m) and most argillaceous above the earlier rift tract, and thinner and more arenaceous along the margins and on intra-basinal highs such.

The Ordovician is divided into three epochs: Early Ordovician ( million to million years ago), Middle Ordovician ( million to million years ago), and Late Ordovician ( million to million years ago). The Ordovician environment Paleogeography. During the Ordovician Period, four major continents were present and separated by three major oceans.

The conodont faunas of the Middle Ordovician (early Darriwilian) of the Precordillera again show dominantly Laurentian affinities. The hypothesis that the Precordillera rifted from the Ouachita embayment and moved across part of the Iapetus Ocean to dock with western Gondwana in Ordovician time is not clearly supported by the conodonts (and.

Vascular plants initially evolved in the Late Ordovician, but macrofossils of unequivocal vascular plants are rare until the later Silurian (e.g. Kenrick & Crane, ;Steemans et al., Early Ordovician conodonts of east and north Greenland.

The Ordovician mya to mya Million Years Ago • The Ordovician is best known for the presence of its diverse marine invertebrates, including graptolites, trilobites, brachiopods, and the conodonts (early vertebrates).Late Ordovician tropical reefs and fossils are beautifully preserved across the island in towering coastal cliffs and river canyons.

The sheer size of the island is astounding, and the insight its fossil record could provide into early Paleozoic marine communities is unrivaled.
