      During a detailed palynological study of the Milk River Formation in southern Alberta, Canada, a diverse and well-preserved assemblage of fungi including dispersed fungal spores and isolated fragments of microthyriaceous fruiting bodies were encountered and these are described. Based on ammonites, magnetostratigraphy, and palynomorphs, these strata are dated as latest Santonian to?earliest. Ruth A. Stockey, Harufumi Nishida, Gar W.

The cretaceous group has generally been divided into an Upper and a Lower series, the Upper called familiarly the chalk, and the Lower the greenmiid; the one deriving its name from the predominance of white eartlry limestone and marl, of which it consists in a great part of France and England, the other or lower series from the plentiful.

Fossils of trees that appear to be similar to these are the dominant fossil found in the early Cretaceous when they were distributed all over the world including at high latitudes. The Upper Cretaceous is the last geological epoch in the began million years ago, and ended 66 million years ago.

The Cretaceous is traditionally divided into Lower Cretaceous (early), and Upper Cretaceous (late), because of the different rocks reflect the conditions in which they were formed.

From lowest to highest, it is subdivided into the Cenomanian, Turonian. Chris Mays, David J.
