Abstract

In the Carnic Alps, located across the border between Italy and Austria, several sections span the Silurian/Devonian boundary in different sedimentary settings, from very shallow water to moderately deep shelf. All studied sections yielded conodonts and based on the first and last occurrences of the conodont taxa in the upper part of the Upper Oul. el. detortus Zone and in the lower part of the I. hesperius Zone a detailed conodont biostratigraphic framework was able to be constructed for this interval. Comparison of data from different depositional settings demonstrates that, although the majority of species are documented everywhere in the Carnic basin, a few taxa, mainly represented by coniforms, are limited to shallow water, whereas others, mainly ozarkodinids, occur only in open sea deposits.
