Pennsyvanian Period by Hannah C
One Animal-Permina
time specialization for marine fauna, with major diversifications of ammonoids, brachiopods and bryozoan
The second Animal-Cynodonta
earliest known synapsid reptile, Protoclepsydrops haplous still had amphibian-type vertebrae with tiny neural processes
The third Animal-Amphibians
so successful during the Carboniferous (Mississippian and Pennsylvanian periods).
Fourth Animal- Diadectomorpha
clade of large reptile-like amphibians that lived in Euramerica during the Carboniferous and Early Permian periods
The firth Animal-Archegosaurus
semi-aquatic predator, a sort of stem tetrapod crocodile
First plant-Carboniferous forest
Among the giant plants in the Carboniferous forests were Cordaites, an early relative of conifers; Calamites, a bushy horsetail; Medullosa,a seed fern (a plant with seeds and fern-like leaves); Psaronius, a tree fern; and Paralycopodites and Lepidophloios, lycopsids (scaly, pole-like trees with cones). Lepidophloios
Second plant-Dimetrodon
in 1841 by the geologist Murchison after a tour of Imperial Russia to include the "vast series of beds of marls, schists, limestones, sandstones, and conglomerates" that overlay the Carboniferous formations in the eastern part of thecountry
