The Quaternary is the most recent geological time period, which started 1.67 to 2.4 million years ago depending on the area studied. The Quaternary is part of the Cenozoic ("new life") Era, along with the Tertiary Period. The Quaternary Period includes recent time (the last 11,000 years ago, since the last ice age) which is called the Holocene and the Pleistocene Epoch.
There is currently much debate as to how long the Quaternary period is. There are considerations into re-classifying the Quaternary as it is "technically" too short to be considered a geological age. But this is a matter of much conjecture at the moment.
The climate was cold in the Quaternary period.
The Quaternary began 1.8 million years ago and we are still in the Quaternary period.
The Neogene Period is not a part of the Quaternary Period. The Quaternary Period occurred right after the Neogene Period. The Neogene is divided into two, Miocene and the Pliocene epochs.
The first epoch of the Quaternary Period is the Pleistocene epoch.
As this is the Quaternary period - take a look around.
The Quaternary Period began 2.6 million years ago.
the humans were the dominant organisms in the quaternary time period
That's When The Human race appeared
what will you might see in the quaternary period
Yes. The Quaternary Period is part of the late Cenozoic.
Currently we are in the Quaternary period.
the period is teritary the period after dinosaurs
It was cold in the Quaternary time period
We are in the Quaternary period now (Holocene Epoch). So it hasn't ended yet.
Humans currently live in the Holocene stage. This is part of the Quaternary period, and the Quaternary is a part of the Cenozoic era. The Quaternary began 2.588 million years ago.
The Quaternary Period.
Since that period is ' to the present, ' yes.
The Quaternary started around 1.8 million years ago and is also the current geologic time period.
Yes. We currently live in an "interglacial period" of the Quaternary Ice Age. Some people confuse "ice age" with a "glacial period" within an ice age.
We live in the Quaternary period.
Geologically speaking, we are in the Quaternary Period.
