Il nome Paleozoico ("vita antica"), deriva dal fatto che, in passato, essa era considerata la prima era geologica, coincidente con la comparsa dei primi esseri viventi. Tuttavia, la scoperta di rocce più antiche contenenti fossili, appartenenti all'era Precambriana, rende oggi assai discutibile tale definizione. L'era Paleozoica abbraccia un intervallo temporale di 300 milioni di anni.
