That was a decision I had already heard about. Bother. I still prefer
Vendian to Ediacaran.
Is there a reason why this Precambrian part of the geologic time
scale does not appear in the pdf version?
And can anyone explain why a press release I just received says "The
Ediacaran Period is the first new rung in the ladder of geological
periods to be adopted in 120 years?" Is the Vendian being redefined,
