The meeting "CLIMATIC AND EVOLUTIONARY CONTROLS ON PALEOZOIC REEFS AND BIOACCUMULATIONS” will be held at The Museum National d’Histoire Naturelle, Paris, 7-8th September (9th?) 2005.

Aim: Characterization of the fossil modifications recorded in the Paleozoic reefs and bioaccumulations (coquinas) as a tool for climatic and paleogeographic reconstructions.

Topics of interest
-Latitudinal distribution of fossil assemblages across subtropical-temperate-cold transects.
-Biodiversity patterns: local, regional and global factors.
-Climate and sea-level fluctuations related to radiation/crisis events
-Ecophenotypes and ecological zonation
-Sequence stratigraphy, depositional architectures and carbonate factories associated with reefal and unstable skeletal pavements

Key words: Paleozoic, reefs, bioaccumulations, taphonomy, paleoecology, sedimentology, paleoclimatology, paleogeography.

Official languages: English, French

A special issue of an international journal (proposed in the second circular) will summarize the proceedings presented during the meeting

Fieldtrip (2 days)
Devonian reefs and mounds from Belgium (Ardennes-Famenne area), with special interest on the mud mound problem. Topics: Givetian and Frasnian platform reefs, mud-mounds and atolls: facies architecture, responses to sea-level variations, sequence stratigraphy, mounds as proxies for paleoceanographic evolution, origin of stromatactis, microbial facies.

Organizer: F. Boulvain, Université de Liège.

Reception of pre-registration form: 1st November 2004
Second circular (with registration cost): 1st February 2005
Final registration and sent of Abstracts: 1st June 2005
