It was a particularly important period for the geology of western Canada. The growth of the Rocky Mountains began ab, years ago at the close of the Mesozoic era or the Age of Reptiles. In fact, the great changes in climate and vegetation produced by the mountain uplift may have had much to do with the extinction of the cold-blooded dinosaurs and the rapid development of the smaller but more intelligent.

Collectively these make up the Rocky Mountains, a mountain system that stretches from Northern British Columbia through central New Mexico and which is part of the great mountain system known as the North American Cordillera.

From: Landscape Evolution in the United States, Related terms: Cenozoic. Rocky Mountains, also known as the Rockies, is a major mountain system of North America and easternmost belt of the North American cordillera, extending more than 3, miles from central Northern Mexico to Northwest Alaska.

The Rockies were formed in the Mesozoic and early Cenozoic eras during the Cordilleran orogeny. HOW THIS BOOK IS ORGANIZED Facing pages in this handbook describe and illustrate the plant species.

The descriptions include synonomy for the scientific names of plants. This is required because many different treatments of the flora of this Rocky Mountain region and states in this region exist.

Timothy F. Lawton, in The Sedimentary Basins of the United States and Canada (Second Edition), Laramide Orogeny. The Laramide orogeny has been defined from both temporal and kinematic criteria, which has led to some confusion as to the meaning of the term.

The Laramide orogeny was a period of mountain building in western North America, which started in the Late Cretaceous, 70 to 80 million years ago, and ended 35 to 55 million years exact duration and ages of beginning and end of the orogeny are in dispute.

The Laramide orogeny occurred in a series of pulses, with quiescent phases intervening. Athabasca Glacier, located on the continental divide of the Canadian Rocky Mountains, is the second largest outlet of the Columbia Icefield.
