Microwear across the K-Pg boundary


I am currently pursuing a project on the diet of Cretaceous and Paleocene mammals using microwear analysis. This is part of a larger project undertaken by my advisor, Dr. Gregory Wilson investigating dietary changes across the K-Pg boundary. It complements an investigation of diet across the K-Pg using Orientation Patch Counts (see Evans et al. 2007, Wilson et al. 2012).We presented some preliminary results at the Annual Meeting of the Society of Vertebrate Paleontology in November 2011.
