Paleoecology Teaser

I am working on the FAA's hazard matrix at the moment. I am going to share some very interesting bits from the book I finished last week, Evolutionary Paleoecology. There was more on Carlos' comments on the caste nature of the Paleozoic ecology and an excellent paper on the carbon cycling of the Paleozoic before modern insect detrivores evolved.

Note: barring a mass extinction that wipes the continents clean, there will never ever be a coal depositing episode like the Carboniferous...

Also, sorry Zach, butt his won't be the Permian Ecology post. Alas. No time for that monstrosity until December at the soonest.
