2: The Holocene is a geological epoch which we currently inhabit. It began 11,550 years ago, about 9,600 B.C.

4: The Holocene begins roughly when the last nonhuman member of the genus Homo Floresiensis, died out. It was also the end of the Younger Dryas cold spell and the Wisconsin glaciations, during which huge areas of Canada, Northern Europe, and Asia covered in ice sheets 2-3 km thick.

6: There were mosses, sedges, shrubs, lichens, and low-lying grasses.Mosses are a type of green plant that have no flowers and no true roots, Sedges are grass-like plants that tend to grow in wetlands, Shrubs is a woody plant of relatively low height, having several stems arising from the base and lacking a single trunk, and Lichens is a plant made from the combination of an alga and a fungus.

8: The era was inhabited many large species now extinct is a better one. A Mastodon was a large, furry member of the elephant family that specialized in eating leaves, the mammoth specialized in eating grass they lived during the ice age in North America and are now extinct. They had tusks that were about 5 meters long and the tusks grew almost horizontal. The tusks had a slight curve to them too. The saber-tooth cat is a famous for its extremely long canine teeth, which reached up to seven inches in length and extended below the lower jaw. The species is actually not closely related to the tiger, which is part of a different subfamily. however, the saber-tooth cat was a large and muscular, similar in size to a modern-day tiger. The Dodo bird lived on the Mauritus Island in the Pacific Oceans. It is an extinct bird. It weighed around 40 to 50 pounds. The Dodo bird was a big bird with short legs and a hooked bill. It also truncated wings which are cut off.

10: The Holocene climate was warm event consisted of increases of up to 4 near the North pole, during roughly the interval 9,000 to 5,000. The time period was around 12,000 to 11,500 years.

12: The Holocene Epoch have really changed like for example the animals are gone like the saber-tooth tiger and the Dodo bird and other kind of animals so the ancient animals are extinct. Well over generation things have been changing, it means that evolution is occurring.
