About this book

Approaches the Cretaceous extinction from the perspective of the fossil record. Archibald conducts a systematic review of the terrestrial vertebrate biota, and argues that the newest fossil evidence shows it is possible that no single cause can be held responsible for the radical changes of the period. He maintains that marine regression, habitat fragmentation, meteor impacts, and volcanic eruptions all contributed to the extinction of the dinosaurs.

Media reviews
Archibald presents a superb synopsis of vertebrate fossil assemblages found in the western interior of the U.S. leading up to the extinction . . . [He] claims that sea-level change is the principal cause of dinosaur extinction, but he does not deny that meteoritic impact also played a role . . . The student is exposed to the details behind the theories, and the reasoning that drives serious scientific debate. The well-informed geologist will see a side of the extinction debate that has not been promoted in the press and nonspecialist literature.
