Terminal cretaceous extinctions in the hell creek area, montana: compatible with catastrophic extinction.

Abstract

Inaccurate stratigraphic correlations in the Hell Creek area, Montana, have led to the assumption that transitional vertebrate faunas (Bug Creek Anthills) exist in the latest Cretaceous, refuting a catastrophic turnover at the Cretaceous-Tertiary boundary.
