Eutrophication by decoupling of the marine biogeochemical cycles of C , N , and P : A mechanism for the Late Devonian mass extinction

Abstract

the isotope excursions represent the composite effect of long-term, global organic C burial, and local changes in photosynthetic C isotope fractionation related to nutrient availability. This eutrophication model forges a mechanistic link between proposed Late Devonian climatic cooling and the selective demise of taxa likely to have been narrowly adapted to… (More)
