    The shallow seas that covered Oklahoma during parts of the Silurian, Devonian and Carboniferous periods were home to generally similar communities. Different kinds of rhynchonelliform brachiopods and crinoids were abundant, and bivalves, cephalopods and snails were also common, Trilobites became less common over time and were reduced in variety. Life appeared on land for the first time, in the form of simple plants. The Ordovician ended, after a series of major extinctions, about million years ago. The Silurian (– million years ago) and Devonian (– million years) followed.

    The Palaeo-chirality record for charophytes started in the Paleozoic (Upper Silurian, more than mya). The Devonian period (– mya) was extremely favorable for the development of these plants since Charophytes appeared about at the same time as land plants and were among the earliest colonizers of continental waters. TERRESTRIAL arthropods have a fossil record that reaches back to at least the Upper Silurian ( million years ago). Most available data on these early land .

Life was still predominantly marine, but the first unequivocal terrestrial fossils are found in Silurian strata. Arachnid and centipede fossil are found.

Perhaps most important is the appearance of vascular plants, particularly Cooksonia and Lycophites. The Devonian (/ d ɪ ˈ v oʊ n. ən, d ə- d ɛ-/ dih-VOH-nee-ən, də- deh-) is a geologic period and system of the Paleozoic, spanning 60 million years from the end of the Silurian, million years ago (Mya), to the beginning of the Carboniferous, Mya.

It is named after Devon, England, where rocks from this period were first studied. The first significant adaptive radiation. Pterygotus is a genus of giant predatory eurypterid, a group of extinct aquatic s of Pterygotus have been discovered in deposits ranging in age from Late Silurian to Late Devonian, and have been referred to several different s have been recovered from four continents; Australia, Europe, North America and South America, which indicates that Family: †Pterygotidae.

They are miniscule plants from the Mid-Silurian of Ireland en are called Cooksonia. Cooksonia plants had dichotomously divided little stems with small knobs at the end. These knobs were sporangia and they were filled with spores. During about 20 or 30 millions of years these were the most.

Late Paleogene fossil plants are uncommon in southern Canada, but in northern Canada, including Banks, Meighen and Ellesmere islands, peat beds containing spruce, birch, walnut, pine, larch and mosses reveal the evolution of Canada's boreal forests more than 20 million years ago.

They also preserve a record of the final elimination of forests. His paper “On fossil plants from the Devonian rocks of Canada,” published in the Quarterly Journal of the Geological Society of London inis considered a landmark in the history of palaeobotany.

Of equal importance was his work on fossil plants of the Devonian and Upper Silurian formations of Canada published by the Geological Survey.

Kaufmann () made an ambitious attempt to improve the Devonian time scale, assisted by 13 biostratigraphic U/Pb ID-TIMS zircon and monazite ages.
