Abstract (in english)
   Overall bioturbation of sediments of the Culm facies is much lower compared to the Mesozoic and Cenozoic flysch facies. Totally reworked intervals (up to 1 cm thick) occur locally at the tops of turbiditic beds. Compared to the Mesozoic and Cenozoic flysch (i.e. Rhenodanubian or Carpathian flysches), the Culm facies appears to have formed in less oxygenated settings possibly with shorter and unequally distributed colonization windows. This explains the prevalence of traces with complex feeding strategies comprising chemosymbiosis and gardening (Chondrites, Dictyodora). Their effect on the integrity of sediment (i.E. the amount of transported material) was weak.
