Abstract: Conformable limestone deposits bracketing the Alamo breccia (Late Devonian, Nevada) provide a robust dataset for comparisons of depositional environments and marine communities before and after a significant meteor impact. Rank abundances of more than 3000 faunal identifications from 158 sampling localities cluster in three major faunal groups that are arranged in an onshore-offshore lithofacies gradient. Comparison of faunal clusters before and after the impact show little to no…

TLDR
The recent ecosystem shift stands in contrast to the long-term endurance of interglacial communities in face of climate-driven environmental changes.

TLDR
Radiometric dating establishes the mass extinction that killed the dinosaurs as synchronous with a large asteroid impact between the Cretaceous-Paleogene boundary and associated mass extinctions with the Chicxulub bolide impact to within 32,000 years.

Suturing of Laurussia and Africa, elimination of easterly tropical currents, and consequent equatorial diversion of cold and possibly dysaerobic waters are suggested as prime causes of the
The Chicxulub Asteroid Impact and Mass Extinction at the Cretaceous-Paleogene Boundary
TLDR
Records of the global stratigraphy across this boundary are synthesized to assess the proposed causes of the Cretaceous-Paleogene boundary and conclude that the Chicxulub impact triggered the mass extinction.
