    follow vs follow on

    The Cretaceous, usually abbreviated K for its German translation Kreide, is a geologic period and system from circa 145.5 4 to 65.5 0.3 million years ago (Ma). In the geologic timescale, the Cretaceous follows on the Jurassic period and is followed by the Paleogene period.

    Why is follow on used instead of follow in the above para?
