Timeline Of Historic Inventions
The timeline of historic inventions is a chronological list of particularly important or significant technological inventions and the people who created the inventions. Note: Dates for inventions are often controversial. Inventions are often invented by several inventors around the same time, or may be invented in an impractical form many years before another inventor improves the invention into a more practical form

Timeline Of Evolution
This timeline of the evolutionary history of life represents the current scientific theory outlining the major events during the development of life on planet Earth. In biology, evolution is any change across successive generations in the heritable characteristics of biological populations. Evolutionary processes give rise to diversity at every level of biological organization, from kingdoms to species, and individual organisms and molecules, such as DNA
DNA
and proteins. The similarities between all present day organisms indicate the presence of a common ancestor from which all known species, living and extinct, have diverged through the process of evolution

Patella
The patella, also known as the kneecap, is a thick, circular-triangular bone which articulates with the femur (thigh bone) and covers and protects the anterior articular surface of the knee joint. The patella is found in many tetrapods, such as mice, cats and birds, but not in whales, or most reptiles. In humans, the patella is the largest sesamoid bone in the body. Babies are born with a patella of soft cartilage which begins to ossify into bone at about three years of age.Contents1 Structure1.1 Variation 1.2 Development2 Function 3 Clinical significance3.1 Dislocation 3.2 Vertical alignment 3.3 Fracture 3.4 Exostosis4 Other animals 5 Etymology 6 See also 7 References 8 External linksStructure[edit] The patella is a sesamoid bone roughly triangular in shape, with the apex of the patella facing downwards.

Turbo Sarmaticus
Turbo sarmaticus, common name the South African turban, is a species of sea snail, marine gastropod mollusk in the family Turbinidae.[1] Some authors place this species in the subgenus Sarmaticus.Contents1 Description 2 Distribution 3 References 4 External linksDescription[edit] The length of the shell varies between 40 mm and 120 mm. The imperforate shell has a globose-depressed shape.Its color pattern is dull brownish, above flammulated, below more or less banded or maculate with white, usually showing more or less of the underlying orange-red layer, between which and the nacre there is a stratum of intense black. The very short spire is conic. The 5-6 whorls are convex but concave above. The upper ones contain revolving lirae. They are frequently carinated, the last traversed by several rows of nodules, of which the coronal is the more prominent and constant. The large, orbicular aperture is very oblique and beautifully nacreous within

Sea Snail
Sea snail
Sea snail
is a common name for snails that normally live in saltwater, in other words marine gastropods. The taxonomic class Gastropoda
Gastropoda
also includes snails that live in other habitats, such as land snails and freshwater snails. Many species of sea snails are edible and exploited as food sources by humans. Sea snails are marine gastropods with shells. Those marine gastropods with no shells, or only internal shells, are variously known by other common names, including sea slug, sea hare, nudibranch, etc. The diversity within sea snails is enormous. Many very different clades of gastropods are either dominated by, or consist exclusively of, sea snails. Because of this great variability, generalization about the feeding, reproduction, habitat, or other traits of sea snails is not possible

Haliotis Midae
Haliotis midae, known commonly as the South African abalone or the perlemoen abalone, is a species of large sea snail, a marine gastropod mollusk in the family Haliotidae, the abalones.[1]Contents1 Subspecies 2 Description 3 Distribution 4 References 5 External linksSubspecies[edit]Haliotis midae volcanius Patamakanthin & Eng, 2007[1]Description[edit] The size of the shell varies between 12 and 20 cm (4.7–7.9 in). "The large shell has a rounded-oval shape and is moderately convex. The distance of the apex from the margin about equals one-fifth the greatest length of the shell. The body whorl is strongly angled at the position of the perforations, perpendicularly descending from the angle to the columellar margin. The surface shows strong, elevated, radiating wrinkles or lamellae, but no spiral markings when adult. The 6 to 11 perforations are small, subcircular, and separated by spaces greater than their own diameter. The two sides are about equally curved

Radiocarbon Dated
Radiocarbon dating (also referred to as carbon dating or carbon-14 dating) is a method for determining the age of an object containing organic material by using the properties of radiocarbon (14C), a radioactive isotope of carbon. The method was developed by Willard Libby in the late 1940s and soon became a standard tool for archaeologists. Libby received the Nobel Prize in Chemistry for his work in 1960. The radiocarbon dating method is based on the fact that radiocarbon is constantly being created in the atmosphere by the interaction of cosmic rays with atmospheric nitrogen. The resulting radiocarbon combines with atmospheric oxygen to form radioactive carbon dioxide, which is incorporated into plants by photosynthesis; animals then acquire 14C by eating the plants. When the animal or plant dies, it stops exchanging carbon with its environment, and from that point onwards the amount of 14C it contains begins to decrease as the 14C undergoes radioactive decay

Plio-Pleistocene
The term Plio- Pleistocene
Pleistocene
refers to an informally described geological pseudo-period, which begins about 5 million years ago (mya) and, drawing forward, combines the time ranges of the formally defined Pliocene

epochs—marking from about 5 mya to about 12 kya. Nominally, the Holocene
Holocene
epoch—the last 12 thousand years—would be excluded, but most Earth scientists would probably treat the current times as incorporated into the term "Plio-Pleistocene" ;[1] see below. In the contexts of archaeology, paleontology, and paleoanthropology, the Plio- Pleistocene
