      The Upper Cretaceous layers were likely deposited in freshwater coastal plain or shallow, muddy, near-shore marine environments. Chukchi shelf stratigraphy: core study reveals pre-Cenozoic bedrock. Divided into four sections, the book covers such subjects as sauropods, theropod giants, feathered dinosaurs, the origins of birds, iguanodontids, hadrosaurs, and pterosaurs. The final section of the book also examines non-dinosaurian reptiles of the Mesozoic Era. Holmes, a specialist in ­natural-history subjects, is thorough, clear, and 4/5(1).

        The avian tail played a critical role in the evolutionary transition from long- to short-tailed birds, yet its ontogeny in extant birds has largely been ignored. This deficit has hampered efforts Cited by: 5. Although Cretaceous dinosaurs are amongst the most popular to the general public, and this book does have a few photos of Triceratops, otherwise Stinchcomb concentrates on sea creatures, such as the ammonites and turitella species, the bony fish and the concept of the Cretaceous (chalk-bearing) as largely sea deposit ecosystems of on the large /5(5).

Ontogeny of upper Cretaceous (Turonian-Santonian) scaphitid ammonites from the western interior of North America by Neil H. Landman Download PDF EPUB FB2

The Upper Cretaceous is the last geological epoch in the began million years ago, and ended 66 million years ago. The Cretaceous is traditionally divided into Lower Cretaceous (early), and Upper Cretaceous (late), because of the different rocks reflect the conditions in which they were formed.

From lowest to highest, it is subdivided into the Cenomanian, Turonian Mesozoic era (– mya):. Ontogeny of upper Cretaceous (Turonian-Santonian) scaphitid ammonites from the western interior of North America.

The Late Cretaceous (–66 Ma) is the younger of two epochs into which the Cretaceous geological period is divided in the geologic time scale. Rock strata from this epoch form the Upper Cretaceous Cretaceous is named after the white limestone known as chalk which occurs widely in northern France and is seen in the white cliffs of south-eastern England, and which dates from this.

Rock strata from this epoch form the Upper Cretaceous series. Spinosauridae (meaning "spined lizards") is a family of megalosauroidean theropod genus Spinosaurus, from which the family, subfamily, and tribe borrow their names, is the largest terrestrial predator known from the fossil record, and likely reached lengths of 15 m (49 ft).

Most spinosaurids lived during the Cretaceous Period, with possible origins in the Late Jurassic, and Clade: Dinosauria. The Lower Cretaceous is the first geological epoch in the began million years ago, and ended million years ago.

Lasting for about 46 million years, this is the longest stage in the Phanerozoic is longer than some of the geological periods in the Phanerozoic.

The Lower Cretaceous is best displayed in England, where it is composed of two series of ic era (– mya):.
