    They developed in shallow seas, making a wall causing the water closer to the land to evaporate leaving rock salt behind.

    Gondwana moves south
    This was the major cause of the mass extinctions during this period. This resulted in global cooling.
  • Period: to

    Silurian

  • First Jawed Fish Evolved

    First Jawed Fish Evolved
    They also develope armored plates that serve as protection
  • First Vascular Plants Evolve

    First Vascular Plants Evolve
    The plants were very small and reproduced through spores
  • Llandovery epoch started

  • Ireviken event

    It was the first and biggest of the three mass extinctions. It lasted for 200,000 years and wiped out 50% of Trilobites.
  • Wenlock epoch started

  • Mulde Event

    It was the second of three mass extinctions. This one conicided with global drop sea level and a excursion of geochemical isotopes.
  • Ludlow epoch started

  • Lau Event

    It was one of three relativly minor mass extinctions during this period, affecting mostly conodonts (fish-like creatures)
  • Pridoli epoch started

  • First True Biota Develop

    First True Biota Develop
    These Myriapoda start to walk on land in the form of millipedes and centipedes
