    The Pliocene Epoch, Ma to Ma, was a time when paleoclimate conditions ranged from very warm, equable climates (on a global scale), rhythmically varying ev years, to high-amplitude glacial-interglacial cycles that led to the “Ice Ages” of the Pleistocene. Evidence for paleoclimate conditions comes from fossils, geochemical data, and the integration of these data with. - Abstracts of the Fifth Conference of the International Organization of Palaeobotany, June 30 - July 5, , Santa Barbara, California, USA. p.

    The Pliocene epoch (spelled Pleiocene in some older texts) is the period in the geologic timescale that extends from million to million years before present.. The Pliocene is the second epoch of the Neogene period of the Cenozoic era. The Pliocene follows the Miocene epoch and is followed by the Pleistocene epoch..

    The absolute values of Pliocene IWT (and thus the magnitude of the Pliocene‐Pleistocene cooling trend) are impacted by Mg/Ca sw corrections, which elevate mean Pliocene IWTs from being comparable to modern (within 1°C) to between 2 and 5°C higher (Figure (Figure3). 3).Cited by:   The end of the Pleistocene epoch (20, to 12, years ago) was marked by a global ice age, which led to the extinction of many megafauna most people don't know is that this capitalized "Ice Age" was the last of no less than 11 Pleistocene ice ages, interspersed with more temperate intervals called "interglacials.'During these periods, much of North America and Eurasia .

The most dramatic evolutionary event of the Pliocene epoch was the appearance of a land bridge between North and South America.

Previously, South America had been much like modern Australia, a giant, isolated continent populated by a variety of strange mammals, including giant ingly, some animals had already succeeded in traversing these two continents.

OF THE CACHE FORMATION (PLIOCENE AND PLEISTOCENE), LAKE COUNTY, CALIFORNIA By MICHAEL J. RYMER ABSTRACT Recent geologic mapping in the Clear Lake area of California has subdivided the non- marine Cache Formation of former usage into three units that are herein named the Cache, Lower Lake, and Kelseyville by: 5.

The Pliocene is often subdivided into two roughly equal parts, the Early Pliocene (= Zanclean) and Late Pliocene (Piacenzian + Gelasian).Climate.

The Pliocene saw the continuation of the climatic cooling that had began in the Miocene, with subtropical regions retreating equatorially, the beginning of the large ice caps, especially in Antarctica, and the northern hemisphere lands and ocean.

Original contributions and comprehensive review papers should appeal to an international audience. Typical topics include but are not restricted to systematics, evolution, palaeobiology.Pliocene Epoch, second of two major worldwide divisions of the Neogene Period, spanning the interval from about million to million years ago.
