Summary:Palaeozoic episodes of crustal deformation, plutonism and volcanism in the southern Canadian cordillera, with concomitant metamorphism, uplift, erosion and clastic sedimentation left their traces within the rocks. The surviving evidence is meagre, scattered, severely overprinted and commonly obliterated by Mesozoic and Cainozoic orogenic events; the results of five studies are presented. [J.M.H.]
