The Early Pleistocene
Pleistocene
(also known as the Lower Pleistocene) is a subepoch in the international geologic timescale or a subseries in chronostratigraphy, being the earliest or lowest subdivision of the Quaternary
Quaternary
period/system and Pleistocene
Pleistocene
epoch/series. It spans the time between 2.588 ± 0.005 Ma (million years ago) and 0.781 ± 0.005 Ma.[2] The Early Pleistocene
Pleistocene
consists of the Gelasian and the Calabrian ages.[3] Notes[edit]
