HISTORY The history of mammalian zonation in North America predates the present debate over K-T extinctions by many years. The first truly synthetic work involving zonation of the Cenozoic Era using mammalian faunas dates from the work of the Wood Committee (Wood and others) published in 1941. This has been greatly augmented and updated in the recent volume edited by Woodburne (1987). Both works were essentially restricted to the Cenozoic Era, although both made some mention of the terrestrial zonation of the latest Cretaceous in North America.
