They were also apparently GREATLY reduced in diversity throughout
most of the Late Cretaceous.
I suspect they might have died out even *without* a major mass
My suspicion is that birds were slowly replacing them already long
before the terminal Cretaceous event. (Much as rodents gradually
replaced multutuberculates during the Eocene).
The peace of God be with you.
