Cosmopolitanism among Gondwanan Late Cretaceous mammals




Consistent with geophysical evidence for the breaking up of Pangaea, it has been hypothesized that Cretaceous vertebrates on progressively isolated landmasses exhibit generally increasing levels of provincialism, with distinctly heightened endemism occurring at the beginning of the Late Cretaceous. The Cretaceous fossil record from the southern supercontinent of Gondwana has been much too poor to test this hypothesis with regards to mammals.
