  • Abstract The Phanerozoic history of life has been interrupted by at least 17 different stage-level episodes of elevated extinction intensity. These range from major turnovers that affected the majority of the Earth’s extant biota (e.g. the Tatarian, Ashgill, and Maastrichtian events) to much smaller and perhaps more geographically localized disruptions. Review of available stage-level stratigraphic evidence suggests that bolide impacts do not exhibit a compelling correspondence to the… CONTINUE READING
