1. The Mesozoic Era By: Jade Tang Science Period 4 1/24/06

2. Who lived in the Mesozoic Era? During the Mesozoic Era there were many different species living. Dinosaurs of all sorts and sizes were roaming around this time. Then, many new trees appeared. Cycads were just one of the type of trees that survived the Mesozoic Era. Flowering plants were also new to the world during the Mesozoic Era. Birds and other flying creatures lived at this point in time. The amount of mammals increased during the Mesozoic Era. Overall, there were many creatures who died out, but some of the animals who lived in the Mesozoic Era still survive today.

3. Lost of Animals and Plants During the Mesozoic Era Who were the animals and plants present during the Mesozoic Era? Some of them are the ones that are listed below: Dinosaurs of many kinds Flowery plants were just found Many mammals appeared Birds survived Ferns grew all over the place Cycads and many other trees Reptiles of all different sorts

4. What Happened during the Mesozoic Era? During the Mesozoic Era, the super continent, Pangaea, started to separate into different continents. During the Triassic period many animals went extinct. The first flowering plants first appeared during the Triassic period. During the Jurassic period, dinosaurs were not the top predator. The Rocky Mountains, and many other mountain chains were created during the Cretaceous period. Many interesting things happened during the Mesozoic Era.

5. Major Events Happening in the Mesozoic Era Pangaea has movement from tectonic plates. Laurasia and Gondwana are created. Flowering plants appeared Dinosaurs went extinct from (or what scientist believe) a huge asteroid More mountains chains were created

6. Mesozoic Era Timeline

7. Why did the things happen when they did during the Mesozoic Era? During the Mesozoic Era, many things happened, and they were all caused from a reason. During the Cretaceous period many mountains were created, because of the movement of tectonic plates. Many dinosaurs died out and soon all of them went extinct. Scientist are not sure what happened, but they believe that a huge asteroid hit earth, and killed all the dinosaurs. More mammals did appear because the dinosaurs no longer dominated the land. Overall, there were many changes and reasons to them during the Mesozoic Era.

8. When was the Mesozoic Era? The Mesozoic Era is just before the era we live in, the Cenozoic Era. Then Mesozoic Era began about 251 million years ago. The Mesozoic Era ended around 65 million years ago. The Triassic period began about 245 million years ago, and ended 202 million years ago. The Jurassic period started 200 million years ago. However, scientist aren’t certain when the Jurassic period ended. The Cretaceous period started around 146 million years ago. This era is much longer than the Cenozoic Era.
