Pollen samples & the 5h mass extinction event 🔬

In the center of this image, there is pollen (shaped like the Red Hot Chili Peppers logo!!!) from a plant that went extinct 66 million years ago. 75% of all species (including dinosaurs) vanished back then.

This was the Cretaceous–Paleogene (K–Pg) extinction event, a major transition in Earth’s history. The event can be observed in a layer of sediment around the world, called the K–Pg boundary. The samples allow to idenfity when the impact took place and how much it affected various species. 

In a summer school about impacts, we went through 12 palynological slides from the boundary section from North Dakota, USA for an exercise about biostratigraphical methods. The pollen appears red because the samples were stained for easier observation.

Below is an example of pollen from a plant that didn’t go extinct after the impact, also sporting a familiar shape:

This brought everyone’s eyes over to notice her arrival while Erica just looked down at her clothing. She thought about her 4th of July outfit and said to the little boy, “Well I have denim shorts, that’s blue. And the Red Hot Chili Peppers logo on my shirt has red… and then I’m pale as a ghost so my skin is my white, ta-da! Red, white and blue!”


“You made that up!” Ethan accused her.


She just cracked up while putting her hands on the curve of her hips, “Well I’m at a party with your uncle, Captain America, so I think that’s about as patriotic as it gets!”
