Carboniferous age fossils from morocco:
The Carboniferous is a geologic period and system that extends from the end of the Devonian Period, about 359.2 ± 2.5 (million years ago), to the beginning of the Permian Period, about 299.0 ± 0.8 Mya (ICS, 2004[5]). The name 'Carboniferous', which means "coal-bearing" and derives from the Latin words carbo (coal) and ferre (to carry), was coined by geologists, William Conybeare and William Phillips in 1822. Based on a study of the British rock succession, it was the first of the modern 'system' names to be employed, and reflects the fact that many coal beds were formed globally during this time. The Carboniferous is often treated in North America as two geological periods, the earlier Mississippian and the later Pennsylvanian.
Terrestrial life was well established by the Carboniferous period. Amphibians were the dominant land vertebrates, of which one branch would eventually evolve into reptiles, the first fully terrestrial vertebrates. Arthropods were also very common, and many (such as Meganeura), were much larger than those of today. Vast swathes of forest covered the land, which would eventually be laid down and become the coal beds characteristic of the Carboniferous system. A minor marine and terrestrial extinction event occurred in the middle
of the period, caused by a change in climate. The latter half of the period experienced glaciations, low sea level, and mountain building.

Le Carbonifère est un système géologique s’étendant de 359,2 ± 2,5 à 299,0 ± 1,8 million d'années. Le Carbonifère suit le Dévonien et précède le Permien. Son nom provient des vastes couches de ’1. Le Carbonifère suit le Dévonien et précède le Permien. Son nom provient des vastes couches de charbon qu’il a laissées en Angleterre et en Europe de l'Ouest.
La Pangée continue sa formation durant le Carbonifère, la température moyenne, stable pendant la première partie du Carbonifère se refroidit ensuite. La partie sud du Gondwana est recouverte d’un glacier continental, mais aux latitudes plus basses un environnement propice et riche en vie prédomine.
Cette période est caractérisée par les premiers grands arbres. Dans le nord-est de l'Amérique, les lys de mer deviennent moins communs et sont presque inexistants vers la fin de cette période. La vie marine est riche en crinoïdes et autres espèces d’échinodermes. Les brachiopodes sont abondants. Les trilobites se sont raréfiés. Sur les terres, une population variée de plantes existe. Les vertébrés terrestres incluent de grands amphibiens et les premiers reptiles bon qu’il a laissées en Angleterre et en Europe de l'Ouest.
