... A sub-era of the Cenozoic era that began 1.81 Ma ago and continues to the present day. Because human activity has become a significant global influence during this time, the Quaternary is sometimes known informally as the Anthropogene. The sub-era comprises the Pleistocene and Holocene epochs and is noted for numerous major ice-sheet advances in the northern hemisphere. By the Pleistocene most of the faunas and floras had a modern appearance. In the most recent revision of the geologic time scale (see appendix) sub-eras have been dropped, so...

... ( Pleistogene , Anthropogene ) Traditionally, either a sub‐era of the Cenozoic era of geologic time that began 1.806 Ma ago and continues to the present day; it is sometimes known as the Pleistogene period and includes the Pleistocene and Holocene epochs , during which there have been numerous ice‐sheet advances in the northern hemisphere. However, the boundary between the Quaternary and the preceding Tertiary was never clearly defined and the International Commission on Stratigraphy proposed abandoning both terms, Tertiary and...
