Eozoic

(Science: geology) Of or pertaining to rocks or strata older than the paleozoic, in many of which the eozoon has been found.

this term has been proposed for the strata formerly called azoic, and is preferred especially by those geologists who regard the eozoon as of organic origin. See archaean.
