      The book includes a compact summary of the widely scattered literature in which the recent studies of non human primate physiology and psychology has been recorded and also a particularly instructive account of the author's own observations on wild chacma .   The Pliocene Epoch (~– mya) was characterized by global cooling and weather disruptions due to the formation of the Panama land bridge and resultant changes in ocean currents. The polar ice caps were expanding and sea levels had already begun to drop, as the Pleistocene Epoch (~ mya– kya) : Barbara Helm Welker.

      The Upper Pliocene is not definitely known to be represented in the interior, but its presence is suspected in Texas and elsewhere. Some isolated areas of Pliocene which cannot yet be correlated with the stages mentioned, are found in southern Idaho, eastern Washington, etc., and no doubt much of the surface deposits of the Great Basin and. The Pleistocene Epoch covers a little over one and a half million years. This epoch witnessed a continued cooling, culminating in a series of ice ages. The great mammalian megafauna are flourishing, and the hominid primates have become increasingly skilled at the use of fire and tool-making.

        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 . Pleistocene (Pleistocene) - epoch, which began 2, million years ago and en years ago. It is preceded by the Pliocene epoch, and is a follower of the Holocene epoch. The Pleistocene fauna of North America included: giant sloths (Megatherium), short-faced bears (Arctodus simus), California tapirs, peccaries, American lion (Panthera.

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.

The cooling and drying of the global environment may have contributed to the enormous spread of grasslands and savannas during this time.

The change in vegetation undoubtedly was a major factor in the rise of long-legged grazers who came to live. Pleistocene Epoch - Pleistocene Epoch - Pleistocene fauna and flora: The plants and animals of the Pleistocene are, in many respects, similar to those living today, but important differences exist.

Moreover, the spatial distribution of various Pleistocene fauna and flora types differed markedly from what it is at present. Changes in climate and environment caused large-scale migrations of both.
