Geological Literature QotW

No introduction needed on this one I feel.

"Returning, as always in all discussions of extinctions, to the dinosaurs, almost every kind of fate has been suggested for them, from cometary collisions to chronic constipation. If I had to choose, I would opt for the latter, since this might relate to the well-known floral change in the Cretaceous from the dominance by the resinous ferns and gymnosperms to the less laxative qualities of the flowering plant."
 
Ager, D.V., 1976, The nature of the fossil record: Proceedings of the Geologists' Association, v. 87, p. 131-159.
