The Ordovician-Silurian Mass extinction event lasted Ma and occurred in 2 distinct pulses (UC Berkeley, ). Pulse #1 was caused by the regression of seas due to trapping of water in continental ice sheets, which drained inland seas and created harsh climates for life. Life during the Silurian System. Echinodermata: Sea urchins. Class: Echinoidea (Sea urchins, Starfish) The familiar round sea urchin shape with its tiny holes for tube feet are often spiny with distinctive five-fold symmetry. Often poorly preserved as the 'test' or thin shell quickly breaks up into tiny fragments Range from the Upper Ordovician to the present day but suffered a mass.

Dictionary entry overview: What does Ordovician mean? • ORDOVICIAN (noun) The noun ORDOVICIAN has 1 sense. 1. from million to million years ago; conodonts and ostracods and algae and seaweeds Familiarity information: ORDOVICIAN used as a noun is very rare.

The beginning of the Silurian (Silurian/Ordovician boundary) is marked by a major extinction event but by the time the rocks that form Wenlock Edge were laid down life was once again flourishing with jawed fish such as the placoderms and acanthodians beginning to diversify. The Ordovician–Silurian extinction event or quite commonly the Ordovician extinction, was the third-largest of the five major extinction events in Earth's history in terms of percentage of genera that went extinct and second largest overall in the overall loss of life. [1] Between about Ma to Ma, two bursts of extinction, separated by one million years, appear to have happened. [2].

The Ordovician–Silurian extinction events, when combined, are the second-largest of the five major extinction events in Earth's history in terms of percentage of genera that became event greatly affected marine communities, which caused the disappearance of one third of all brachiopod and bryozoan families, furthermore numerous groups of conodonts, trilobites, and graptolites.

The Cambrian Period was followed, million years ago, by the Ordovician Period. At that time many species died out, to be replaced by new ones in another evolutionary “explosion”, called the Great Ordovician Biodiversification Event (or GOBE). During the Ordovician, the seas surrounding North America and Europe became rich in life, especially trilobites, brachiopods and reef-forming corals.

The Silurian (/ s ɪ ˈ lj ʊər. ən, s aɪ-/ sih-LYOOR-ee-ən, sy-) is a geologic period and system spanning million years from the end of the Ordovician Period, at million years ago (), to the beginning of the Devonian Period, Mya. The Silurian is the shortest period of the Paleozoic with other geologic periods, the rock beds that define the period's start and end.

The Ordovician–Silurian extinction event was the second largest of the five major extinctions of marine life, behind the Permian extinction. At the time, all known life was confined to the seas and oceans. More than 60% of marine invertebrates died out including two-thirds of all Brachiopod and Bryozoan families.

Ordovician Period - Ordovician Period - Animals: Although no fossils of land animals are known from the Ordovician, burrows and trackways from the Late Ordovician of Pennsylvania have been interpreted as produced by animals similar to millipedes.

A millipede-like organism is inferred because the burrows occur in discrete size classes, are bilaterally symmetrical, and were backfilled by the.

During the Silurian Period the first land plants appeared. Marine organisms once again expanded in diversity following the extinction of so many families in the late Ordovician. The Silurian was probably relatively warm even though pCO2 may have been lower. Not just an art book, the book also explains the major events of the period in simple language.

This period can be subdivided into four epochs which include the Llandovery Epoch, the Wenlock Epoch, the Ludlow Epoch and the Přídolí Epoch.
