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

Photic Zone Euxinia During the Permian-Triassic Superanoxic Event
Carbon and sulfur isotopic data, together with biomarker and iron speciation analyses of the Hovea-3 core that was drilled in the Perth Basin, Western Australia, indicate that euxinic conditionsExpand

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

How to kill (almost) all life: the end-Permian extinction event
Abstract The biggest mass extinction of the past 600 million years (My), the end-Permian event (251My ago), witnessed the loss of as much as 95% of all species on Earth. Key questions for biologistsExpand

The Lilliput effect in the aftermath of the end-Permian extinction event
Early Triassic animal body fossils and trace fossils are small relative to those in older and younger intervals. Size decreases sharply through the end-Permian extinction event and Permian/TriassicExpand

Terrestrial–marine teleconnections in the collapse and rebuilding of Early Triassic marine ecosystems
Abstract The latest Permian mass extinction (LPE), just prior to the Permian–Triassic boundary at ~ 252 Ma, resulted in the disappearance of ~ 90% of skeletonized marine taxa and the replacement ofExpand

Palaeoenvironments and faunal recovery after the end-Permian mass extinction
Abstract Strata of the Lower Triassic Werfen Formation (Dolomites, northern Italy) record deposition in a wide range of palaeoenvironments from peritidal to outer ramp settings. This enables accurateExpand

Anomalous Early Triassic sediment fluxes due to elevated weathering rates and their biological consequences
Analysis of 16 marine Permian-Triassic boundary sections with a near-global distribution demonstrates systematic changes in sediment fluxes and lithologies in the aftermath of the end-Permian crisis.Expand

Life in the end-Permian dead zone
The fossil record of land plants is an obvious source of information on the dynamics of mass extinctions in the geological past. In conjunction with the end-Permian ecological crisis, ≈250 millionExpand
