    Tempskya is a family of extinct tree ferns from the Late Cretaceous. They grew up to 15ft (m) tall and is a small to medium tree fern. The trunk of Tempskya was what is known as a false trunk in that it is made up of a number of individual stems and petioles. This .

    Nine species of the permineralized stems of Tempskya were investigated from the Lower Cretaceous Cedar Mountain and Burro Canyon Formations, and the lower Upper Cretaceous Dakota Formation in central and southeastern Utah. Tempskya jonesii, T. stichkae, and T. readii are new and are differentiated on the basis of the radial orientation of their dorsiventral stems, their internodal lengths, . Following the convention of Alroy et al. and Miller et al., the Late Cretaceous was parsed into four temporal bins of roughly equal duration (the “standard” PaleoDB ∼10 my bins), referred to here and in other studies as Cretaceous 5 through Cretaceous -area analyses were conducted on the data contained within each of these bins. For cross-comparisons with this approach, analyses.

His­ toricalaccounts about this genus have been pub­ lished by Read and Brown (), Ash and Read (), and Hlustik (). Geographically, Tempskya is presently. The lengthy Cretaceous Period constitutes a major portion of the interval between ancient life-forms and those that dominate Earth today.

Dinosaurs were the dominant group of land animals, especially “duck-billed” dinosaurs (hadrosaurs), such as Shantungosaurus, and horned forms, such as marine reptiles such as ichthyosaurs, mosasaurs, and plesiosaurs were common in the.

Tempskya Corda () is an unusual genus of tree ferns with a false trunk composed of a dichotomously branching stem system embedded in a thick mantle of small adventitious roots. After becoming nearly extinct during the Permian, the ferns began a slow recovery during the Triassic as the climate of the earth moderated.

As a result, a considerable number and variety were present and widely distributed during the Jurassic and Early Cretaceous. However, with the rapid expansion of the angiosperms during the Late Cretaceous, the ferns once again became reduced in variety. Even Vakhrameev in his book on Jurassic and Cretaceous floras and climates () merely indicates that ferns are moisture-loving plants.

However, this picture is too general, especially during the warmer and more arid Late Jurassic and Early Cretaceous, because we have found evidence of ferns that were able to adapt to these changing conditions.

In addition to the type specimens of the sole species,C. fujiiana Ogura, two specimens collected near the type locality were examined histologically. The histological data being used for the taxonomical comparison were obtained from anatomical studies on the rachises of extant tree ferns.

The final section of the book also examines non-dinosaurian reptiles of the Mesozoic Era. Holmes, a specialist in ­natural-history subjects, is thorough, clear, and informative in explaining theories relating to the mass extinction of dinosaurs and other creatures of the time.

Chapters conclude with a list of several summary s: 1. The Cretaceous Period is known for an explosion of new lines of ornithischians—duck-billed, armored, and horned dinosaurs in particular—that developed specialized adaptations for chewing and consuming the wider assortment of vegetation available to them, including the recently evolved flowering plants and gymnosperms.
