    Mesozoic Era, second of Earth’s three major geologic eras of Phanerozoic time. Its name is derived from the Greek term for “middle life.” The Mesozoic Era began million years ago, following the conclusion of the Paleozoic Era, and ended 66 million years ago, at the dawn of the Cenozoic Era.(See the geologic time scale.)The major divisions of the Mesozoic Era are, from oldest to. -Resulted in crustal deformation along the entire western margin of North America -Formed the Sierra Nevada and Rocky Mountains (Laramide Orogeny is the name of this mountain building event) -Era ended with mass extinctions - dinosaurs extinct, but small mammals survived.

    The main focus of Dr. Krause's research is the evolutionary history and paleobiology of Mesozoic and Early Cenozoic vertebrates, particularly mammals. Almost all of this research is based on field-oriented programs, primarily in Madagascar and the Western Interior of North America. The Hell Creek Formation is an intensively-studied division of mostly Upper Cretaceous and some lower Paleocene rocks in North America, named for exposures studied along Hell Creek, near Jordan, formation stretches over portions of Montana, North Dakota, South Dakota, and Montana, the Hell Creek Formation overlies the Fox Hills Formation.

    In western North America, the continental margin experienced abundant marine sedimentation, and faulting, the latter of which caused natural gas to accumulate. The Appalachians eroded to create a low plain, and isostatic adjustment rejuvenated many streams, which sculpted the . Figure \(\PageIndex{1}\): Paraceratherium, seen in this reconstruction, was a massive ( ton, 15 foot tall) ancestor of rhinos. The Cenozoic, meaning “new life,” is known as the age of mammals because it is in this era that mammals came to be a dominant and large life form, including human , as well, flourished in the open niches left by the dinosaur’s demise.

They are generally less consolidated than older rocks, although some are indurated (cemented) as a result of high pressure due to deep burial, chemical diagenesis, or high. Increased sedimentation in fault-block basins along with lava flows in basin floors and the intrusion of dikes and sills along the east coast of North America during the Triassic provides evidence for _____.

During the Cenozoic era, the eastern and western margins of North America experienced similar geologic events.

For example, 15 of the 24 biogeographic provinces (Cabrera and Willink, ), and 10 of the 11 biomes, recognized for the entire continent, are found in SSA (Dinerstein et al., ; Olson and Dinerstein, ).This complex mosaic is the result of the interaction through .6.
