Abstract

The term Moldanubian region, as used here, follows the concept of Suess (1903), who defined Moldanubicum as the southern half of the Bohemian Massif, encompassing the rivers Moldau and Danube. This area includes two principal tectonostratigraphic units: a high-grade unit — the Moldanubian Zone (or the Moldanubicum s. s.) and a generally low-grade unit — the Teplá-Barrandian Zone (or Bohemicum as proposed by Malkovský 1979).
