In this text, two of the world’s leading experts in palynology and paleobotany provide a comprehensive account of the fate of land plants during the ‘great extinction’ about 65 million years ago. They describe how the time boundary between the Cretaceous and Paleogene Periods (the K-T boundary) is recognised in the geological record, and how fossil plants can be used to understand global events of that time. There are case studies from over 100 localities around the world, including North America, China, Russia and New Zealand.
