      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 [ ]. Amphibians were the dominant vertebrate life form as only volcanoes Australia's rocks are much older than those of New Zealand Australia's highest mountains are the Great Dividing Range, while New Zealand has a spine of much higher mountains .

The Paleozoic is bracketed by two of the most important events in the history of animal life. 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. Ermine Cowles Case (–), invariably known as E.C.

At the other end of the Paleozoic, the largest mass extinction in history wiped out. The Carboniferous Period lasted from about to million years ago during the late Paleozoic Era. The stratigraphy of the Mississippian can be easily distinguished from that of the Pennsylvanian.

The Mississippian environment of North America was heavily marine, with seas covering parts of the continent. Characterized by a surge in biodiversity and evolutionary development, the Paleozoic Era ushered in the beginnings of life as we know it.

Within these pages, readers will discover the fossil and geologic evidence from this time that reveals a dynamic planet, where new species of plants and animals were constantly emerging and continents were breaking apart 1/5(1).

Paleozoic Era: Life Two great animal faunas dominated the seas during the Paleozoic. The "Cambrian fauna" typified the Cambrian oceans; although members of most phyla were present during the Cambrian, the seas were dominated by trilobites, inarticulate brachiopods, monoplacophoran molluscs, hyolithids, "small shelly fossils" of uncertain systematic posiiton.

The term “amphibian” loosely translates from the Greek as “dual life,” which is a reference to the metamorphosis that many frogs and salamanders undergo and the unique mix of aquatic and terrestrial phases that are required in their life cycle.the evolution of life.
