Abstract [en]

The Cretaceous saw dramatic changes in the tectonic setting, landscape and biodiversity of Australasia. Continental fragmentation, marine transgression, the rise of 'modern' faunas and floras, and the Cretaceous-Paleogene mass extinction represent key events that set the stage for future evolution of this region's insular Cenozoic biotas. Australasia's rich but scattered Cretaceous fossil record also provides a rare glimpse into austral high-latitude life and environments throughout the breakup phase of southeastern Gondwana.
