A Correlated History of Earth Poster (12th Edition)


The Correlated History of Earth is an educational poster showing the 4.5 billion years of earth's history. Each column represents a timeline from ancient (at the bottom) to recent (at the top) times. Plate tectonic maps, mountain building events (orogenies), major volcanic episodes, glacial epochs, all known craters from asteroid and comet impacts are shown, as are more than 100 classic fossil localities from around the world, fossil ranges of plants, invertebrate and vertebrate lifeforms, and major extinction events. Also depicted on the chart are the Cambrian "explosion" of animal phyla and the juxtaposition of reptiles and mammals across the Cretaceous/Tertiary (K/T) boundary. 


A striking visual representation of the Earth's history and a valuable reference tool. Comes laminated for years of use. At over 3' tall, it is large to enough to clearly display all the fascinating details it presents. Printed in the USA and designed by the Worldwide Museum of Natural History.

The depicted product is the 11th edition poster, however you will 
receive the 12th edition.

    Gorgeous poster, it is laminated, comes shipped in rolled tube. Extremely detailed in regards to time scale, geology & evolution, a lot of work was put into this by the Worldwide Museum of Natural History. It is easy to read and understand, great for beginner scientists & advanced learners. I just wish the website would put which edition we are ordering to make customer's aware of when it is updated with new information.

    Excellent Resource

    Posted by Jonathan J Russell on Mar 12th 2020

    I've been teaching earth science and geology for two decades and this is a great time scale. It has paleogeography, first appearance of major plant/animal/fungi groups, geomagnetic reversals, extinction events, etc. Lots of great info.

    Must have for a learning child

    Posted by ed on Dec 16th 2019

    This is a great way for a child to see the interwoven circumstances of evolution throughout history. Leave it hung up in their room and throughout the years they will find new connections and understand more. It's a lot of info. Years worth of knowledge.

    We adore this poster. It is so rich with detail we have mounted it in front of our toilet in order to be studied time and time again and shared with guests. It is truly genius.
