Kurzfassung

Zusammenfassung. Im Gebiet des mährischen Devons wurden folgende Korallen-Zonen festgestellt, die für die regionale biostratigraphische Korrelation geeignet sind: 1. Cyathophyllum dianthus - Thamnophyllum caespitosum-Zone (Eifelium-unterstes Givetium); 2. Dendrostella-Zone (Untergivetium); 3. Disphyllia laxa-Zone (Obergivetium); 4 a. Disphyllum wirbelauense-Zone (Unterfrasnium, Gebiete des Mährischen Karstes und "Mitte"); 4 b. Grypophyllum evae-Zone (Unterfrasnium, Gebiet "Nord"); 5. Disphyllum karolinae - Thamnophyllum-Zone (Mittelfrasnium); 6. Frechastraea pentagona - Temnophyllum-Zone (Oberfrasnium).

Abstract

Several coral zones serving for regional biostratigraphic correlation of the Moravian Devonian in the topmost Eifelian to Upper Frasnian were established: 1. Cyathophyllum dianthus - Thamnophyllum caespitosum Assemblage-Zone (Eifelian - lowermost Givetian); 2. Dendrostella Range-Zone (Lower Givetian); 3. Disphyllia laxa Range-Zone (Upper Givetian); 4 a. Disphyllum wirbelauense Range-Zone (Lower Frasnian, regions of Moravian Karst and "Center"); 4 b. Grypophyllum evae Range-Zone (Lower Frasnian, region "North"); 4. Disphyllum karolinae - Thamnophyllum Assemblage-Zone (Lower Frasnian); 6. Frechastraea pentagona - Temnophyllum Assemblage-Zone (Middle and Upper Frasnian).
