ABSTRACT
An end-Cretaceous nonavian dinosaur extinction and an early Paleocene mam-
malian radiation is documented primarily in stratigraphic sequences in eastern Mon-
tana. To determine how representative these sequences are, we extended investigation
of this Cretaceous-Tertiary (K-T) transition to new areas. Studies in southwestern
North Dakota and southeastern Montana provide new records of mammals through
the last 1.321.68 million years of the Cretaceous and extending into the Paleocene,
allowing us to evaluate mammalian faunal differentiation across the geographic land-
