A research team has found new evidence that fish rapidly evolved in two phases following the Cretaceous-Paleogene (K/Pg) mass extinction that occurred 66 million years ago. The team, which included Yale’s Pincelli Hull, made the discovery by examining microscopic fish teeth preserved in sediments buried deep in the bottom of the Pacific Ocean.
