The Quaternary Period covers the span of time from over one and a half million years ago to the present day. Although this may seem like an extraordinary length of time, it is actually a very short period in the context of the age of Gaia. This period saw the current ice age, the rise of man, and the extinction of most of the mammalian megafauna
