Includes a nice map... where they wrote Serbia instead of Siberia (Serbia
was smeared over long parts of the shores of the Palaeotethys, I guess) and
point to South Africa in the Dem. Rep. of Congo. :-D
Back to list relevance... this is really a bit strange, considering that
procolophonids died out suddenly at the Tr-J boundary. I think this _will_
be explainable by the different natures of the impactors and impact sites...
:-] Well, certain maybe comparable lizards (Teiidae) survived the K-T, so
things of that sort seem to happen during impact-induced mass extinctions.
