The Tertiary Period (including the Pliocene, Miocene, Oligocene, Eocene, and Paleocene Epochs) lasted from about 65 million years ago to 1.8 million years ago. It is part of the Cenozoic Era, along with the Quarternary Period.
The Tertiary period is the beginning of the Cenozoic Era. It began 65 million years ago and ended 1.8 million years ago.
The Cenozoic era is divided into the Tertiary and Quaternary periods. The Tertiary period is from 65 million years ago until 2 million years ago and the Quaternary period is from 2 million years ago to the present.
The Tertiary is a term for a geologic period 65 million to 2.588 million years ago.
The k-t extinction was ~65million years ago and marks the transition from the Cretaceous to the Tertiary period.
65 million to 1.8 million years ago.
Earth's geography changed dramatically between the beginning and the end of the Tertiary. I could give you a long winded description, but I think you would prefer maps. Under "Related Links" there will be a map for the early Tertiary (called the Paleogene), and one for the later Tertiary (Neogene). P.S. The Tertiary began 65.5 million years ago and ended 2.6 million years ago.
The Tertiary lasted from 65.5 million years ago until 1.8 million years ago. Saber toothed cats evolved about 28 million years ago and died out 10,000 years ago. Therefor, saber toothed cats did live in the Tertiary.
The Miocene Epoch, 23.8 to 5.3 million years ago. = =
The Oligocene Epoch is in the Paleogene Period, coming before the Eocene Epoch. (previously considered as the Tertiary Period, which overlapped the Neogene and Paleogene) It was about 34 to 23 million years ago.
The answer is 63.2 million years. Since the Tertiary Period began 65 million years ago and then stoped 1.8 million years ago you have to subtract the 1.8 million from 65 million to get the actual lenght of time.
The Tertiary began after the end of the Cretaceous, 65.5 million years ago (mya). The Tertiary ended only 2.588 mya. It encompassed two periods, the Paleogene and the Neogene.
there was 5 epoch in the tertiary period
The Tertiary Period and Quaternary Period are divisions of geologic time. The Tertiary Period occurred first, from 65.5 to 2.6 million years ago, and covers the time period from the extinction of the dinosaurs to the beginning of the Ice Ages. The Quaternary Period occurred from 2,588,000 years ago until today, beginning when glaciation started.
All mammals present today are example of tertiary period mammals as we are living in tertiary period .
The tertiary period took place in the CENOZOIC era.
The Paleocene was from about 65 million to 54 million years ago. It is part of the Tertiary Period and the Cenozoic Era.
I have no idea what the oxygen levels were during the tertiary period!
Early humans first appeared in the tertiary period, a long time after the cretaceous period.
The Pliocene was from about 5 million to 1.8 million years ago. It is the last epoch of the Tertiary Period in the Cenozoic Era.
The dawn horse lived approximitely 50-52 million years ago in the tertiary period!
The climate in the Tertiary Period was generally warm and mild. But during the middle of the Tertiary the climate cooled and the Ice Age began.
how did the earth look during the Tertiary time period
The Mesozoic Period stretched from 248 million years ago to 65 million years ago.
145 million years ago.
