* Load is given in academic hour (1 academic hour = 45 minutes)
Invertebrates (taxonomy, with accent on rudists, similarities and differences within differet groups, determination fo species), way of living (environments which invertebrates inhabit), relations between different invertebrate fossils within the same environment (different subtidal environments of rudists, environments of benthic forams, relaton between rudists and benthic forams), role of invertebrates for determination of environment and vertical-lateral exchange of facies (invertebrates and paleobathimetry, change of fossil community through time and space, invertebrates as environment indicators) relation sediment-fossil remain (lateral exchange of different limestone types with respect to macro or microfossils), work on individual task.

Learning outcomes:

Advanced knowledge and understanding of carbonate platforms characteristics and facies belts with respect to the fossil assemblage.
Advanced understanding of mutual interaction betwen the sea level change and sediments within sequnce stratigraphy as well as associated fossil communities .
Advanced understanding of relations between microfossils and macrofossils within shallow water sediments on basis of the paleobathimetry.
Some ability to apply knowledge and understanding of shallow water biostratigraphy according to the different fossil remnants from Upper Cretaceous deposits.
Ability to explain shallow water paleoenvironments during Upper Cretaceous.
