During the Late Cambrian, several cratons including the South China Block and the northern margin of Gondwanaland, occupied low latitudes (Webby, ).Especially during the Middle Ordovician time, many continental margins were destroyed by plate collision and orogenesis, while major intracratonic downwarps began to develop McKerrow and Cited by:

  Introduction. The Upper Ordovician Xiazhen Formation in South China is well known for its reefs, mainly consisting of tabulate corals, stromatoporoids, and algae (Li et al. ; Zhang et al. ).The formation is also known to yield diverse other invertebrate fossils including brachiopods, cephalopods, gastropods, and by: Because the formal Secretariat of the International Subcommission on Ordovician Stratigraphy will be established in Prague, during the upcoming 8th International Symposium on the Ordovician System, please do not send any submissions for the next issue of Ordovician News until we know the identity of the new editor.
