    Early in Ordovician time the seas occupied the Cordilleran trough and extended into Colorado from the northwest, much as in the Cambrian. Consequently the Ordovician sediments are represented in some places along the Front Range of Colorado and have been divided into several distinct formations, the oldest being the Manitou limestone, followed. The Early Cambrian fossils from eastern San Bernardino County are sufficiently abundant and evenly distributed through the section and can be grouped into three faunules (see fig. 33) demonstrating the need for three subdivisions of the upper part of the Bonnia-Olenellus Zone in this area.

    Cambrian Period - Cambrian Period - Cambrian rocks: Cambrian rocks have a special biological significance, because they are the earliest to contain diverse fossils of animals. These rocks also include the first appearances of most animal phyla that have fossil records. Cambrian evolution produced such an extraordinary array of new body plans that this event has been referred to as the Cambrian. The Cambrian is rated "Superb" by our guests.

    The Cambrian System is extensive as well in the Cordilleran Region west of the Central Interior, but for the most part its outcrops and those of succeeding lower Paleozoic systems are so narrow and discontinu­ ous that they are all merged on the Geologic Map into a single unit (IP).

Fallas*, Geological Survey of Canada, Calgary @ Introduction The region spanning the central Mackenzie Valley, centered on the communities of Norman Wells and Tulita, encompasses a variety of structural styles. The Cambrian System of the Cordillera can be subdivided into four series, the Lower Cambrian Placentian and Waucoban Series, Middle Cambrian, and Upper Cambrian.

The Placentian Series is strikingly different from the other three in its predominance of clastic sediments. Accompanying plates, many in color, include a regional tectonostratigraphic map, a series of time-slice syntheses, specialized maps showing patterns of metamorphism and of crustal extension, and a balanced cross-section across the Cordilleran thrust belt.

O'Sullivan. Assuming the Cambrian ended between and Ma, the evolutionary turnover among the trilobites is among the fastest observed in the Phanerozoic record. Using the new age for the base of the Cambrian, the average longevity for Cambrian trilobite genera is only about 1 My, much shorter than previously thought.

Sequence boundaries in the section that lie below the Precambrian–Cambrian boundary all pinch out within the craton margin, such that the basal unit of the Sauk Supersequence rests nonconformably on Proterozoic basement in cratonic sections.
