    Tectonic factors in the Mesozoic generated a suite of intracratonic and oceanic basins with limited deep-water connection to the open ocean and frequent anoxic conditions. These basins include rift related features, such as the North Sea in Europe, and foreland basins, such as the Western Interior Seaway of North America.   Prior studies of Mesozoic biodiversity document a diversity peak for dinosaur species in the Campanian stage of the Late Cretaceous, yet have failed to provide explicit causal mechanisms. We provide evidence that a marked increase in North American dinosaur biodiversity can be attributed to dynamic orogenic episodes within the Western Interior Basin (WIB).

Detailed palynological analysis of depositional environments in carbonaceous shales and marlstones in the Cenomanian-Turonian (C-T) interval of the Cretaceous Western Interior seaway indicates that: (1) dinoflagellate species diversity, (2) ratio of Spiniferites to Cyclonephelium (S/C ratio), and (3) depositional organic facies are collectively useful for distinguishing cycles of marine.
