The Triassic period is part of the geologic system of classifying geologic formations.
The Jurassic period is part of the Mesozoic era, and is divided into Early, Middle, and Late epochs. The Jurassic is preceded by the Permian era and followed by the Jurassic era.
The super continent Pangea supposedly started to break up during this period.
According to evolutionary theory this period saw the emergence of pterosaurs, mammals, turtles, and frogs.
Under the uniformitarian dates assigned by secular geologists, it represents approximately the period of Earth's history from 250 million years ago to 200 million years ago.
Flood geologists reject the uniformitarian assumptions behind the dates derived by secular geologists, so they reject these dates (see geologic system).
