Large igneous provinces and mass extinctions
Comparing the timing of mass extinctions with the formation age of large igneous provinces reveals a close correspondence in five cases, but previous claims that all such provinces coincide withExpand

Mass Extinctions and Their Aftermath
This is a systematic review of the major mass extinctions in the history of life. It covers all groups of organisms - plant, animal, terrestrial, and marine - that have become extinct alongside theExpand

Lethally Hot Temperatures During the Early Triassic Greenhouse
Too-Hot Times Climate warming has been invoked as a factor contributing to widespread extinction events, acting as a trigger or amplifier for more proximal causes, such as marine anoxia. Sun et al.Expand

Oceanic Anoxia and the End Permian Mass Extinction
Data on rocks from Spitsbergen and the equatorial sections of Italy and Slovenia indicate that the world's oceans became anoxic at both low and high paleolatitudes in the Late Permian. SuchExpand

Rapid and synchronous collapse of marine and terrestrial ecosystems during the end-Permian biotic crisis
A newly studied Permian-Triassic (P-Tr) boundary section in Jameson Land, East Greenland, contains an abundant and well-preserved marine fauna as well as terrestrial palynomorphs. For the first timeExpand

Large shifts in the isotopic composition of seawater sulphate across the Permo–Triassic boundary in northern Italy
Carbonate-associated sulphate (CAS) extracted from a Permo–Triassic succession at Siusi in northern Italy is shown to preserve a true seawater-sulphate isotope record. Two periods of increasing δ34SExpand

Triassic climates — State of the art and perspectives
Abstract The climate of the Triassic period was characterized by a non-zonal pattern, dictated by a strong global monsoon system with effects that are most evident in the Tethys realm. This strongExpand

The Permo-Triassic transition in Spitsbergen: δ 13 C org chemostratigraphy, Fe and S geochemistry, facies, fauna and trace fossils
New δ 13 C org analyses of two boundary sections between the late Permian Kapp Starostin Formation and the early Triassic Vardebukta Formation of western Spitsbergen confirm field evidence that theirExpand
