The Ordovician to Million Years Ago. The Ordovician period began approximately million years ago, with the end of the Cambrian, and ended around million years ago, with the beginning of the this time, the area north of the tropics was almost entirely ocean, and most of the world's land was collected into the southern super-continent Gondwana. The Ordovician Period began about million years ago and ended about million years ago. These are the oldest rocks in the state that are exposed at the surface, in southwestern Ohio along the axis of a positive structural feature known as the Cincinnati Arch or Platform, which formed in the Ordovician.
Though Ordovician life sounds primitive by today's standards, the life during this period was more advanced than life in the earlier Cambrian Period. Ordovician life was characterized by a dramatic increase of the shelly fauna, corals, and bryozoans. The shelly fauna include the brachiopods which did exist prior to the Ordovician, but were less. British Ordovician cystoids. London (c/o Institute of Geological Science, Exhibition Rd., S.W. 7), Palaeontographical Society, (OCoLC) Document Type: Book: All Authors / Contributors: C R C Paul.
Remains of ostraderms (jawless, armored fish) from Ordovician rocks comprise some of the oldest vertebrate fossils. Despite the appearance of coral fossils during this time, reef ecosystems continued to be dominated by algae and sponges, and in some cases by bryozoans. However, there apparently were also periods of complete global reef collapse. Echinoderms from Middle and Upper Ordovician Rocks of Kentucky By RONALD L.

The Ordovician (/ ɔːr. d ə ˈ v ɪ ʃ. ə n,-d oʊ-,-ˈ v ɪ ʃ. ə n / or-də-VISH-ee-ən, -doh- - VISH-ən) is a geologic period and system, the second of six periods of the Paleozoic Ordovician spans million years from the end of the Cambrian Period million years ago (Mya) to the start of the Silurian Period Mya.
The Ordovician, named after the Welsh Mean atmospheric CO content over period duration:. Ordovician Period, in geologic time, the second period of the Paleozoic Era.
It began million years ago and ended million years ago. The interval was a time of intense diversification (an increase in the number of species) of marine animal life in what became known as the Ordovician radiation. Ordovician Period - Ordovician Period - Animals: Although no fossils of land animals are known from the Ordovician, burrows and trackways from the Late Ordovician of Pennsylvania have been interpreted as produced by animals similar to millipedes.
A millipede-like organism is inferred because the burrows occur in discrete size classes, are bilaterally symmetrical, and were backfilled by the.
For most of the Ordovician, life continued to flourish, but near the end of the period the End–Ordovician extinction event seriously affected planktonic forms like conodonts, graptolites, and some groups of trilobites.
Brachiopods, bryozoans and echinoderms were also heavily affected, and the cone-shaped nautiloids died out completely, except for rare Silurian forms. Metazoan invertebrates dominated Ordovician life.
While far less famous than the Cambrian Explosion, the Ordovician encompassed a massive adaptive radiation where marine faunal genera increased some four fold.
Carbonate shell-secreting organisms were particularly successful, and competed with trilobites in continental shelf communities. The Ordovician Period started at a major extinction event called the Cambrian–Ordovician extinction events about ± Mya (million years ago), and lasted for about million years.
It ended with the Ordovician–Silurian extinction event, about ±. Learn more about the Upper Ordovician by referring to this book The Upper Ordovician Rocks of Kentucky and their Bryozoa restored by Kentucky Paleological Society on their website at this link.
Also a number of good sources about Ordovician fossils can be found at. The Ordovician period probably saw a greater expansion within the animal kingdom than any other similar time interval.
The tri-lobites, which were the dominant marine animal group of the Cambrian, continued to diversify during the Ordovician but, in proportion to the other animals present, the trilobites no longer had their former dominance.
However, new developments, like large raised eyes in. The Cambrian Period was followed, million years ago, by the Ordovician Period. At that time many species died out, to be replaced by new ones in another evolutionary “explosion”, called the Great Ordovician Biodiversification Event (or GOBE).
During the Ordovician, the seas surrounding North America and Europe became rich in life, especially trilobites, brachiopods and reef-forming corals. Some of the dominant organisms during the ordovician period inlcude green algae, coral reefs, mollusks, land plants and jawless fish. *By G1N4* also there were cephalopods and bronchiopods as well.
Ordovician organisms lived during the Ordovician period, which lasted between approximately to million years ago. It began with a mass extinction called the Cambrian-Ordovician extinction events, which wiped out 50% of all multicellular organisms in the fossil record.
At the time, all known multicellular organisms were exclusively marine. The Ordovician is, from the point of view of stratigraphers, the Age of Graptolites.
Graptolites are thought to be the remains of hemichordates of some kind, and often look like a cross between a conodont and a crumpled pipe-cleaner.
Like conodonts, their remains are common and correlate reasonably well over broad areas of the world. The Ordovician hardground faunas of Estonia are not diverse. They include echinoderm holdfasts (i.e., eocrinoids and crinoids), edrioasteroids, bryozoans (both hemispherical trepostomes and stalked ptilodictyids) and cornulitids.
The earliest hardground faunas appeared in the Dapingian (i.e., bryozoans and echinoderms). The Estonian hardground faunas are less diverse than the North American ones.
Dating Edit. The Upper Ordovician edrioasteroid Cystaster stellatus on a cobble from the Kope Formation in northern Kentucky. In the background is the cyclostome bryozoan Corynotrypa. The Ordovician period started at a major extinction event called the Cambrian-Ordovician extinction events some time about ± million years ago (Mya) and lasted for about million years.
The Ordovician is known for sudden diversity in life regarding invertebrates and even early vertebrates like fish without jaws in its early stages. We can say that the Ordovician fauna set off a chain of adaptive radiation that remained more or less constant throughout. The Ordovician Period The Rise of The Cephalopods.
This is all about the Ordovician Period: The climate, geography, and the major events that shaped life on Earth. Some plants and animals thrived while others became extinct. The second period of the Paleozoic Era, The Ordovician rocks were first found in Wales, so its name comes from a tribe of people who once lived in the area where the rocks.

Widespread families of trilobites disappeared and graptolites came close to total extinction. Examples of fossil groups that became extinct at the end-Ordovician extinction.
It might seem a bit strange to consider traveling back million years as a “homecoming.” But geologists time travel often enough to qualify as Time Lord apprentices, regardless of whether we are traveling by phone booth, car, or on foot.
What creates this situation is how geologists may experience much of their training, teaching, or research interests in rocks of a certain age, gaining. The Great Ordovician meteor shower Posted on 30 September, by Metageologist Between Mars and Jupiter, million years ago, there was a massive collision between two km-sized chunks of rock – this solar system’s biggest bang of the last billion years.

Koren.The Ordovician Period is the second period of the Paleozoic Era. This period saw the origin and rapid evolution of many new types of invertebrate animals which replaced their Cambrian predecessors. About million years ago, in the Ordovician period, life forms diversified dramatically and gave rise to many of the marine forms familiar today.Ordovician definition, noting or pertaining to a geologic period of the Paleozoic Era, from million to million years ago, notable for the advent of fish.
