Coral-Strome Reef

Late Ordovician tabulate and rugose corals, as well as stromatoporoids, diversified and began to construct massive coral-strome reefs.

These complex ecosystems provided habitat for brachiopods, crinoids, bivalve mollusks, snails, trilobites and bryozoans, as well as for swimming predators, particularly nautiloids.

Coral-strome reefs were the main type of reef for almost 100 million years, until the Late Devonian.
