The Hell Creek Formation of North Dakota preserves a rich and varied palynoflora including pollen, spores, and algal cysts; this palynoflora provides insight into the nature of plant life in the region in late Maastrichtian time. This palynological record supplements extensive data from the same ancient vegetation preserved in the megafloral record, and it provides background biostratigraphic data necessary to determine the nature of the Cretaceous-Tertiary (K-T) boundary event. This study of… CONTINUE READING
