Abstract

The distribution of corals within the paleo-geotectonic units of Yugoslavia is varying during the Cretaceous period. Lower Cretaceous corals are restricted to the Dinarid Platform and to the Carpathian-Balcanid unit. Cenomanian-Turonian-Coniacian corals occur exclusively in the Drina-Ivanjica unit. The Santonian-Campanian and Maastrichtian corals are restricted to the northern part of the Inner Dinarids. The prosperity and obliteration of corals on the paleo-geotectonic units of Yugoslavia was caused by environmental changes due to tectonic activities.
