Abstract (in english)
   The Ludlow Series in the Prague Synform is marked by general transition from shale-dominated Gorstian to largely carbonate sedimentation in the Ludfordian. The facies distribution and changes reflect regressive-transgressive eustatic regime combined with tectonically unstable basin settings and synsedimentary alkaline basalt volcanism. Accordingly, shallow carbonate facies that first developed near the volcanic centers is very diverse, whereas deeper environment is rather monotonous. In the past years a progress was made to enhance biostratigraphic correlation among local facies of the Prague Synform and the global correlation of the Ludlow strata by integration of new biostratigraphic data on graptolites, conodonts and additional pelagic and benthic faunal groups. The pronounced mid-Ludfordian Lau/Kozlowskii Event was characterized by extinction among pelagic faunas. Faunal extinction coincided with major fluctuations in sea-level indicated by local unconformities associated with debr
