Re: Mega eruption may have wiped out [Cambrian] life

<<Am I mixed up?   There was one major extinction during the Permian; at its
end, supposed to have been caused by the Siberian traps, right?>>

Yep.  You missed the word 'Cambrian', Dora.  The Siberian traps are indeed
Permian, but the Mega eruptions referred to in this case, are said to have
been over a quarter of a million years earlier.  They've been associated
with a different mass extinction.
