C - PALEOZOIC ERA
Which one of the following times would be the longest Jurassic period carboniferous period paleozoic era mesozoic?
What times would be the longest a paleozonic b carboniferious period c Jurassic period d mesozoic era?
According to the newly released Geologic Time Scale (June 2012) these are the durations of the given options: a) Paleozoic: 258.8 million years b) Carboniferous: 60.0 million years c) Jurassic: 56.3 million years d) Mesozoic: 186.2 million years Its not surprising that the Carboniferous and Jurassic are the shorted as both are Periods one of the given Eras. So the Paleozoic is the longest of the four options.
Out of these 4 what would be the longest period Jurassic period carboniferous periodpaleozoic eraor mesozoic era?
Paleozoic Era - 291 million years (542 - 251 Ma) Mesozoic Era - 185.5 million years (251 - 65.5 Ma) Carboniferous Period - 62.2 million years (359.2 - 299Ma) Jurassic Period - 54.1 million years (199.6 - 145.5 Ma)
CENOZOIC ERA- consists of QUATERNARY AND TERTIARY PERIODS. MESOZOIC ERA- consists CRETACEOUS, JURASSIC, AND TRIASSIC PERIODS. PALEOZOIC ERA- consists of PERMIAN, CARBONIFEROUS, DEVONIAN, SILURIAN, ORDOVICIAN, AND CAMBRIAN PERIODS
The Paleozoic era represents the longest timespan from the list. It ran from 542 to 251 million years ago, a total time of 291 million years. It is also worth noting that an era always represents a longer timespan than a period and in fact an era will be composed of a number of periods. For completeness, the other time spans mentioned in the question are given further detail below: The Mesozoic era ran from… Read More
Paleozoic Era- Cambrian, Ordovician, Silurian, Devonian, Carboniferous, Permian Mass Extinction (Permian-Tertiary) 248 mya Mesozoic Era- Triassic, Jurassic, Cretaceous Mass Extinction (K-T) 65 mya Cenozoic- Tertiary, Quaternary
Mesozoic era is called the era of creepers.In this era there are three periods viz Triassic,Jurassic and carboniferous. It is found that in Triassic era, reptiles were evolved and in Jurassic era they were dominant.That is why Mesozoic era is called the era of creepers/reptiles.
The main dinosaur periods were the Triassic, Jurassic and Cretaceous periods. they were in the mesozoic era. there were other periods before dinosaurs like the carboniferous.
reptiles first appeared in paleozoic era (carboniferous period), but looking back at the ancient times the max. diversity was during mesozoic era (triassic, jurassic,cretaceous period) , at those times reptiles were the dominant creatures on earth , so they must be max. in diversity during those times.
there were 11 mass extintions.1 Precambrian(Paleozoic)2 Cambrian,3 Ordovician,4 Silurian,5 Devonian,6 Carboniferous,7 Permian.(Mesozoic)8 Triassic,9 jurassic,10 Cretaceous.(Cenozoic)11 tertiary, 0 quaternary/today.

The Paleozoic Era of geologic history occurred before the Mesozoic Era.
Paleozoic, Mesozoic and Cenozoic are examples of geological era from the Phanerozoic Eon.
The Mesozoic era was tropical and the Paleozoic was dry.
Paleozoic- Old Life Mesozoic- Middle Life Cenozoic- New Life
The geologic time scale is divided into eons. The eons are broken down into eras, which then are broken down into periods. I will list the correct divisions below. Eons: Phanerozi, Proterozoic, Archean Eras: (Phanerozic): Cenozoic, Mesozoic, Paleozoic (Proterozoic):Neoproterozoic, Mesoproterozoic, paleoproterozoic (Archean): Neoarchean, Mesoarchean, Paleoarchean, Eoarchean (Cenozoic)Quaternary, Neogene,Paleogene (Mesozoic)Cretaceous, Jurassic, Triassic (Paleozoic)Permian, Carboniferous, Devonian, Silurian, Ordovician, Cambrian (Neoproterozoic)Ediacaran, Cryogenian, Tonian (Mesoproterozoic)Stenian, Ectasian, Calymmian (Paleoproterozoic)Statherian, Orosirian, Rhyacian, Siderian
The event that marks the division of the Paleozoic and Mesozoic era is the breaking up of the Pangaea
The Paleozoic precedes the Mesozoic. And our current era, the Cenozoic, follows the Mesozoic.
The Paleozoic came before the Mesozoic.
No the Cambrian Period came before the Jurassic Period.Periods in the Paleozoic Era (542 - 251 Ma) and the Mesozoic Era (251 - 65.5 Ma)Cambrian (542 - 488.3 Ma)Ordivician (488.3 - 443.7 Ma)Silurian (443.7 - 416 Ma)Devonian (416 - 359.2 Ma)Carboniferous (359.2 - 299 Ma)Permian (299 - 251 Ma)Triassic (251 - 199.6 Ma)Jurrasic (199.6 - 145.5 Ma)Cretaceous (145.5 - 65.5 Ma)

Yes there were bugs in the Mesozoic Era. Any non aquatic arthropods are generally considered bugs but this is incorrect. However Insects, millipedes, arachnids and most other creatures considered bugs all evolved in the Paleozoic Era before the Mesozoic Era. Most orders have survived until modern days. More correctly, bugs are an order of insects named Hemiptera and are defined by their mouths evolving into proboscis surrounded by a hard beak like labium. They eat… Read More
Mesozoic and Paleozoic
"middle times" because the mesozoic was in between the paleozoic ("early times") and the Cenozoic ("current times")
The Paleozoic, the Mesozoic and the Cenozoic are the 3 Eras of the Phanerozoic Eon. The Paleozoic Era occurred between 542 and 251 million years ago. It lasted 291 million years. It was made up of 6 geological periods. The Cambrian Period(542 - 488Ma), the Ordovician(488 - 443Ma), the Silurian(433 - 416Ma), the Devonian(416 - 359Ma), the Carboniferous(359 - 299Ma) and the Permian(299 - 251Ma). The Mesozoic Era occurred between 251 and 65.5 million years… Read More

Mesozoic era and Cenozoic Era
Paleozoic, Mesozoic, and Cenozoic refer to periods in Earth's history. The Paleozoic era began 542 million years ago and ended 251 million years ago. The Mesozoic era is the age of dinosaurs and was from 245 to 66 million years ago. The Cenozoic period began 65 million years ago and continues today.
Yes. If no animals survived from the Paleozoic into the mesozoic, then there would be no animals today.
The major subdivisions are the Precambrian, Palaeozoic, Mesozoic and Cenozoic, which are subdivided into Archean and Proterozoic (Precambrian), Cambrian, Ordovician, Silurian, Devonian, Carboniferous (or Missisipian and Pennsylvanian in the US) and Permian (Palaeozoic), Triassic, Jurassic and Cretaceous (Mesozoic) and Tertiary and Quaternary (Cenozoic).

Triassic, Jurassic, and Cretaceous are the names of the periods in the Mesozoic Era.
the Mesozoic era
Because Paleozoic era rock is much older than Mesozoic era rock, these strata are generally at greater depth than Mesozoic rock, thus limiting their accessibility to areas that have been exposed by weathering and erosion.
All three: Paleozoic, Mesozoic and Cenozoic
The Jurassic Period was the 2nd Period of the Mesozoic Era. Mesozoic Era (251 - 65.5 Ma) Triassic Period (251 - 199.6Ma) Jurassic Period (199.6 - 145.5Ma) Cretaceous Period (145.5 - 65.5Ma)
The dinosaurs arose during the Mesozoic (Middle Life) era. It began about 225 million years ago at the end of the Paleozoic and ended about 65 million years ago at the beginning of the Cenozoic. It included the Triassic, Jurassic, and Cretaceous periods.
The Jurassic period was part of the Mesozoic Era. This era was also known as the Age of Reptiles. Other parts of the Mesozoic Era were the Triassic and Cretaceous periods.
no, the dinosaurs lived in the Mesozoic era.
