  • 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. (p. 366; see the Perspective by Bottjer) present evidence that exceptionally high temperatures themselves may have caused some extinctions during the end-Permian. A rapid temperature rise coincided with a general absence of ichthyofauna in equatorial regions, as well as an absence of many species of… CONTINUE READING
