Abstract (in english)
   The Lower Devonian sequences of the Barrandian area of central Bohemia are distinguisehd by marine, mostly carbonate development. The carbonate facies persits here from the Upper Silurian up to the early Middle Devonian (Eifelian). The facies development is complex and ranges from the offshore, mostly micritic and nodular fine-grained limestones of deeper-water environment across diverse varicoloured bioclastic limestones up to the reef facies, all indicating a warm climatic zone and open possibilities of wide-range migrations of pelagic faunas. Some sections are very suitable for comparizons of different kinds of zonations based on diverse groups of organisms (conodonts, tentaculites, goniatites, chitinozoans, spores etc.). This also concerns the Zlíchovian and Dalejan stages (or substages) which both have their type areas and proposed lower boundary stratotypes, which were discussed e.g. by Chlupáč (1976, 1982 etc.) and visited by members of SDS field meeting in 1977 and 1986.
   These sections, however, should be revized according to principle erected by the International Commission on Stratigraphy (last version Remane et al. 1997) and the International Stratigraphic Guide (2nd edit., Salvador 1994). Selected examples of sections, which may be considered as candidate stratotypes of the Zlíchovian and Dalejan lower boudaries, are here reported
