Global review of the Permian–Triassic mass extinction and subsequent recovery: Part II

The present volume represents Part II of a thematic issue of Earth-Science Reviews titled “Global Review of the Permian-Triassic Mass Extinction and Subsequent Recovery”. Part I of this thematic issue was published in May 2014 as Earth-Science Reviews Volume 137 (see Chen et al., 2014). The nine studies in the present volume rely extensively on research undertaken in the context of IGCP Project 572 (“Restoration of Marine Ecosystems following the Permian-Triassic Mass Extinction: Lessons for the Present”), which brought together a large number of geoscientists from around the world for a series of field workshops, meetings, and symposia from 2008 to 2014. IGCP 572 members published an average of ~ 120 research papers annually, with many studies contributing to a better understanding of the mechanisms and causes of the PTB biocrisis and the protracted recovery that followed it. This project yielded eight journal special issues prior to the two Earth-Science Reviews volumes ( Algeo et al., 2011b, Algeo et al., 2013a, Chen et al., 2009, Chen et al., 2013, Crasquin, 2013, Heydari et al., 2010, Metcalfe and Isozaki, 2009 and Xie and Kershaw, 2012). A successor project, IGCP 630 (“Permian-Triassic Climatic and Environmental Extremes and Biotic Response”) was initiated in 2014 and will run through 2019. Its principal goals are to better understand (1) connections between extreme warming, environmental changes, and contemporaneous biotic decline and recovery, and (2) interactions between terrestrial and marine ecosystems and their interdependent response to large-scale climate and environmental changes.
