Gondwana to Asia: plate tectonics, paleogeography and the biological connectivity of the Indian sub-continent from the Middle Jurassic through latest Eocene (166-35 Ma)
Abstract Using the most up-to-the-date information available, we present a considerably revised plate tectonic and paleogeographic model for the Indian Ocean bordering continents, from Gondwana'sExpand

Volcanism, Mass Extinction, and Carbon Isotope Fluctuations in the Middle Permian of China
Middle Permian Extinction A major extinction in the Middle Permian 260 to 270 million years ago preceded the huge end-Permian extinction. Wignall et al. (p. 1179) present a detailed analysis of theExpand

Emeishan large igneous province (SW China) and the mantle-plume up-doming hypothesis
Abstract: The Middle Permian (c. 262 Ma) Emeishan Basalt Formation of SW China is a commonly cited example of a large igneous province (LIP) that formed as a result of a deep-mantle plume impingingExpand

Exploring the combined role of eustasy and oceanic island thermal subsidence in shaping biodiversity on the Galápagos
Aim: We constructed a series of high-resolution palaeogeographical models for the Galapagos archipelago for the last 700 kyr, accommodating thermal subsidence of the islands, eustatic sea-levelExpand
