Abstract
    The Lower Ordovician Fezouata Biota (central Anti-Atlas, Morocco) is the sole exceptionally preserved marine fossil assemblage of Burgess Shale type so far known from post-Cambrian rocks. It offers a unique opportunity to document the transition between the Cambrian and Palaeozoic evolutionary faunas. Recent fieldwork in the area north of Zagora has yielded critical new information on both the precise stratigraphic position of, and the palaeoenvironmental conditions associated with, the exceptionally preserved assemblages of the Fezouata Biota.
