Caption

Carboniferous forest. Illustration of the sun setting over a Carboniferous forest. A flying insect similar to the modern day dragonfly is seen in the foreground at upper left. The Carboniferous period extended from 345 to 280 million years ago and was characterised by the abundance of primitive vascular plants such as club mosses, ferns and horsetails. These often reached a height of 15 to 20 metres and contributed largely to the formation of coal seams. The fauna consisted mainly of insects, freshwater molluscs, fishes and some amphibians.
