  • The Cretaceous and Tertiary phosphate deposits of Morocco which have a vertical thickness covering 25 My (Maastrichtian–Lower Lutetian), are well known for their rich fossil archives. The selachians' fish constitute the most abundant and varied vertebrate faunas. Analysis of the dynamics and patterns of extinctions and faunal renewals identified two significant episodes of high rates of extinction. A mass-extinctions event took place at the end of the Maastrichtian (Cretaceous–Tertiary boundary… CONTINUE READING
