Abstract (in english)
   Compositional variations and grain-size properties of both carbonate constituents and conodonts as an alternative component group were used for interpreting the processes governing the deposition of upper Famennian and middle Tournaisian calciturbidites in Moravia, Czech Republic. Both the composition and grain-size properties of conodont element associations showed to be markedly dependant on facies type of their host sediment. Upper Devonian calciturbidite successions deposited on flanks of wide, Moravian - Silesian carbonate platform are composed mainly of echinoderm- and peloid-rich wacke/packstones and intraclastic float/rudstones (fine-grained calciturbidites, "normal" calciturbidites with Tab Bouma sequences,debris-flow breccias) with abundance of shelf- and shelf margin conodont taxa and epipelagic and "mesopelagic" conodonts.
