Record Type: concept
Tertiary (period of Cenozoic) (Cenozoic, Phanerozoic, ... Styles and Periods (hierarchy name))

 

Note: First period of the Cenozoic, comprising the major portion of the era. It extends from 65.8 million to 2.6 million years ago. The Tertiary is subdivided into five epochs: Paleocene, Eocene, Oligocene, Miocene, and Pliocene. Some authorities, chiefly European, have lately replaced the Tertiary with two new time divisions: Paleogene (comprising the earlier three epochs of the period) and Neogene (covering the final two).

Additional Notes:
Dutch ..... Eerste periode van het Cenozo├»cum, die het merendeel van die era duurde, van ongeveer 65,8 miljoen tot 2,6 miljoen jaar geleden. Het tertiair wordt onderverdeeld in vijf tijdvakken: het paleoceen, eoceen, oligoceen, mioceen en plioceen. Sommige autoriteiten, vooral in Europa, hebben recentelijk het tertiair vervangen door twee nieuwe tijdsdelen: het paleogeen (bestaande uit de eerste drie tijdvakken van de periode) en het neogeen (bestaande uit de laatste twee).
