Late and Upper[edit]

... are not synonyms. The Late Pleistocene is an age, a geochronological unit that corresponds to Upper Pleistocene stage rocks. Pseudofusulina (talk) 17:13, 9 February 2012 (UTC)

BP vs. BC[edit]

This Late Pleistocene article states "The end of the age is defined as 11,700 calendar years BC (before Christ)."

Should this be changed to "11,700 calendar years BP (before present)"? The Holocene article states that it "began at the end of the Pleistocene (at 11,700 calendar years BP)."

Mixing up 11,700 BC with 11,700 BP is a difference of about 2,000 years. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 75.48.14.22 (talk) 23:31, 5 July 2014 (UTC)
