    This is wrong, in Geochronology paleocene, eocene,oligocene myocene ,pliocene are NOT periods but Epochs. The period list also should have included Paleogene and Neogene (old Tertiary period) and Quarternary period. The epoch table should have included the Holocene Epoch, which followed the Pleisticene. Sequence is
    Eons-eras-periods epochs-ages
