Many woody and flowering plant species were lost in the K-P event and were replaced by a radiation of fern species.

Many marine invertebrates, such as clams and snails, were greatly reduced in diversity by the K-P event; new species took 4–8 million years to evolve and replace the extinct species.

All large-bodied reptiles died out in the extinction and were replaced by smaller-bodied species of dinosaurs and crocodiles.

Mammals survived and radiated after the K-P event; all major orders appeared within 5 to 10 million years, replacing the dinosaurs and marine reptiles.
