Facies distribution on a carbonate ramp controlled by underground relief and subsidence (Late Eocene of the eastern Alpine Foreland Basin)

 

11. Bryozoan Limestones / Marls

They are formed by densely packed, erect bryozoans, which are rarely fragmented.

Present-day bryozoans comparable to those of the current study occur anchored to the soft-bottoms in water depths down to more than 400 m. In contrast to the above described biota, they do not depend on light.
