Is there any reason youre avoiding the LLandovery?
Id include them all because what really defines the time pperiod are several good graptolite species that serve as index fossils.
As far as the stratigraphy, Id have to send you to individual source papaers on unique environments of deposition (desert deposits, aerial dunes, strewn fields, or even morainal deposits.)
Id start with a comprehensive search of the "Tretise of Invertebrate Paleontology", since, Im sure youve already used this resource.
There are Special Papers from the 1940's through 1960's in the US in which a state was producing stratigraphic series of Paleozoic through Cenozoic rocks (1940's terminology). Im not sure whether the GSA or some other organization has published a comprehensive review of stratigraphic environments nationwide.I use these old folios a lot. Most states have them on the web so you dont have to spend time getting silicosis in some dusty archive.
Theres a hell of a lot of stratigraphic and structural work being donefrom AFghanistan through the Horn of Africa right now, as well as in Australia. Australia can serve as a really good model of the planet since it has almost all the eras and epochs in its stratigraphy. Canada and US together serve well too. Trouble with Russia and China is that their work has been kept under wraps till recently.
CHina seems to be going in a paleo frenzy to "catch up" on documenting all these lagerstatte fossils that they seem to have.
Are you going to work in the colonization of the land by plant material?
