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.
