Abstract (in english)
   73 species of bivalves are described from the Silurian and lowermost Devonian of the Carnic Alps. The majority of the species are closely related to the species described from Perunica (Prague Basin, Bohemia) and the Northern Gondwana marginal regions (Sardinia, Italy; the Montagne Noire, the Mouthoumet Massif and Massif Armoricain, France). 25 species (7 nem) are characteristic to the Carnic Alps. The bivalve dominated communities, known also from Bohemia, France and Sardinia, are closely related to the cephalopod limestone biofacies and micritic limestone facies. In practice they may be used for correlation with Perunica and other Gondwana European basins. Analysis of the Bivalve dominated communities shows that the development of the Carnic Alps basin during the Silurian was very similar to other Northern Gondwana regions and that the distance between Perunica and Northern Gondwana was much smaller than has been interpreted on the basis of paleomagnetic measurements
