The Cambrian faunas recorded in the different areas of the Hesperian Massif do not support evidences of a marked biogeographica/ differentiation in the Jberian Península throughout this Period. The vertical variations shown by the tri/abite and archaeocyathid associations are related to more global factors as are a certain c/imatic uniformity, the proximity of the Gondwanan continent and the opening of a Mideuropean Ocean.
