Evidence from Mud Buttes, North Dakota, of a high rate of extinction of plant species at the end of the Cretaceous Period. Pollen records of par ticular types of plants in strata from before and after the K-T boundary are marked with either circles or stars. Species that have been recorded only in rock strata older than the K-T boundary are denoted with stars; these species apparently did not survive the extinction event at the boundary. (Nichols and Johnson, 2008; reprinted with the permission of Cambridge University Press) 16 or igins of the deciduous forest Figure 3.

All of the complex—and supposedly obligatory—relationships among species were disrupted for tens of thousands of years. Today the most widely accepted theory about the structure of ecosystems is that different species of plants and animals generally respond to climate change and other environmental changes separately from one another, and that temperate forests are not closely interdependent communities, but rather assemblages of species that happen to live in the same place at the same time because of similar environmental requirements and the accidents of history.

All of these species are looking for insects and spiders 28 or igins of the deciduous forest to feed themselves and their nestlings, but they are finding different prey species in different places. They don’t compete much with one another for food even though they all forage in the same patch of forest. By all appearances, this is a highly organized system that is the product of a long period of evolution. There may have been a long period of evolutionary adjustments among these species, but it clearly did not occur in Connecticut or in any other static place.
