An example from the North American Ordovician is used to contrast temporal and geographical scales developed biozonally and graphically. Other biostratigraphical studies that involve data assembled graphically are cited, and a plea is directed to students of conodonts to assemble and evaluate their data graphically, or at least to present the data in a form that can be used by others.
