Another paper that seems to be out of touch with the actual inferred ecology of
the Mesozoic (i.e., it once again assumes that the K/T event was the end of the
dinosaurs, instead of the end of 75% of all life on Earth).
Also, no mention in the news story about how other reptiles were able to
survive the K/T, or why viviparous plesiosaurs and mosasaurs bit the bullet.

than we do of many fossil groups." - Alfred S. Romer
