Another Permian Extinction Post Coming

It's coming along. I'm going to revisit the sequence of events that caused the Great Dying that I posted earlier first and then do the overdue Permian Ecology post. I want to post a diagram of the feedbacks and sequence of events to make this coming post a little clearer. I want to also see if I can get permission to post a diagram from Benton's work on the Paleozoic End Times.


The first post should be done by Friday.

Wrong period by hundreds of millions of years but have you seen this?

I didn't see that. it's a bit of a disappointment in a way though. No NorAm terror birds in the Holocene then. Bummer.
