Once you settle into it this book becomes a fascinating biography of planet Earth (an autobiography, actually, since all the evidence is gleaned from the Earth itself). Its faster-paced than a text book, but it does require that you memorize some terms to make later chapters understandable, but its well worth the effort/5(59).

At its beginning, multicelled animals underwent a dramatic "explosion" in diversity, and almost all living animal phyla appeared within a few millions of years.

At the other end of the Paleozoic, the largest mass extinction in history wiped out approximately 90% of all marine animal species. A compend of geology.

The eozoic rocks are remarkable for their great deposits of crystalline iron ores, of which those of the Laurentian on Lake Champlain and those of the Huronian on Lake Superior are remarkable examples, as are also those of Missouri.

Similar deposits occur in the eozoic rocks of Scandinavia and Russia. In the upper part of the Mississippi valley, where the palaeozoic rocks are represented by 3, or 4, ft. of sediments, we find hills made up of horizontal strata, the lower Cam- brian rocks which form the base of the hills being everywhere above the water level, while the height of the hills is equal to the vertical thickness of the strata.

The Paleozoic Era occurred from about million years ago to about million years ago. The meaning of the word Paleozoic derives from the Greek Word palaios – which means “ancient” and the Greek word zoe – which means “life.” Which is an apt name for this period in Earth history because this is [ ].

The Precambrian (or Pre-Cambrian, sometimes abbreviated pЄ, or Cryptozoic) is the earliest part of Earth's history, set before the current Phanerozoic Eon. The Precambrian is so named because it preceded the Cambrian, the first period of the Phanerozoic eon, which is named after Cambria, the Latinised name for Wales, where rocks from this age were first studied.

This means that rocks from the Phanerozoic contain fossils, lots of fossils. The Paleozoic period lasted about million years, from about million years ago to about million years ago. So much happened during the Paleozoic that it is divided into seven geologic time periods, shown on the red steps of the "Staircase of Time.".

For the period in which the Lower Palaeo-zoic rocks were laid down the name Proterozoic (Greek proteros, the earlier, first), or earlier life, has been proposed, and to the Upper Palaeozoic the title of Deuterozoic (Greek deuteros, second), or sec-ond life."

As we descend in depth and time into the earth’s crust, after passing through nearly all the vast series of strata constituting the monuments of geological history, we at length reach the Eozoic or Laurentian rocks, deepest and oldest of all the formations known to the geologist, and more thoroughly altered or metamorphosed by heat.
