For example, the boundary between the Permian and Triassic is marked by a global extinction in which a large percentage of Earth's plant and animal species were eliminated. Another example is the boundary between the Precambrian and the Paleozoic which is marked by the first appearance of animals with hard parts which can fossilize. Eons are the largest intervals of geologic time and are hundreds of millions of years in duration. In the time scale you can see that the Phanerozoic Eon is the most recent eon which began more than 500 million years ago.

With the passage of time and the accumulation of more particles, and often with chemical changes, the sediments at the bottom of the pile become rock. Gravel becomes a rock called conglomerate, sand becomes sandstone, mud becomes mudstone or shale, and the animal skeletons and plant pieces can become fossils. Sedimentary rocks are formed particle by particle and bed by bed, and the layers are piled one on top of the other. 39 Thus, in any sequence of layered rocks, a given bed must be older than any bed on top of it.

In the time scale one can see that the era is divided into three: Cenozoic, Mesozoic and Paleozoic. Very significant events in Earth's history are used to determine the boundaries of the eras. Eras are subdivided into periods. The events that bound the periods are wide-spread in their extent but are not as significant as those which bound the eras. In the time scale you can see that the Paleozoic is subdivided into the Permian, Pennsylvanian, Mississippian, Devonian, Silurian, Ordovician and Cambrian periods.
