1) was selected for the study because tabulate corals are much more abundant there than in other Wenlock sites of Estonia.
The morphological variation in tabulate corals occurs at different levels: within the corallum, within the population, and between populations (Dixon 1989; Webb 1996).
Devonian encrusting communities differ from the Silurian ones in being dominated by microconchids, hederelloids and tabulate corals instead of bryozoans and echinoderms, although the latter two groups are still common (Kesling et al.
In the lower part of the Paadla Formation (Sauvere Beds), only rare specimens of the brachiopods Didyinothyris didyina (Dalman), Microsphaeridiorhynchus nucula (Sowerby), and Estonirhynchia sp.; and the tabulate coral Syringopora schmidti Tchernychev are found.
Six taxonomic groups were studied: chitinozoans, conodonts, vertebrates, stromatoporoids, tabulate corals, and brachiopods.
The earliest endosymbiotic worm fossils are known from Late Ordovician rugose (Elias 1986) and tabulate corals (Tapanila 2004) and are preserved as bioclaustrations.
Palaeozoic bioclaustrations are hitherto unknown in cateniform, fasciculate, and auloporoid tabulate corals (Tapanila 2005).
In a general way, this group has been frequently cited, but not described, in palaeontological and geological studies of the Carboniferous of the Iberian Peninsula as auloporid, syringoporid or tabulate corals.
Latest Ordovician and earliest Silurian tabulate corals of South China.
We distinguished nine components in the field: massive stromatoporoids (Clathrodictyon), other stromatoporoids, four types of tabulate corals (Plasmoporella, Catenipora, Agetolites, Fletcheriella), rugose corals, other bioclasts and micrite.
