What was it doing before, at, and after the boundary? Also, just another quick

The flora of the Lance and Hell Creek is decidedly less tropical in nature than that of the underlying formations, and thus has a lower diversity. There is also some evidence of a subtle change in the flora towards the top of the Hell Creek, though I do not remember the details.
