Middle Permian Extinction A major extinction in the Middle Permian 260 to 270 million years ago preceded the huge end-Permian extinction. Wignall et al. (p. 1179) present a detailed analysis of the Middle Permian event from rocks in southwest China. The extinction coincided with extensive nearby volcanic eruptions. A major drop in carbon isotope values followed the extinction event, implying massive disruption of the carbon cycle. Fossiliferous rocks from southwest China show that a major… Expand
