Introduction. Sections of the Guinea Corn Limestone of central Jamaica are critical to understanding the extinction patterns of late Maastrichtian rudists: they have a highly diverse and abundant fauna (Chubb,Mitchell,Mitchell,Mitchell and Gunter, ), and the age of the rocks has been well constrained by strontium isotopic dating (Steuber et al., ).Cited by: 5.
