The terrestrial Permian-Triassic boundary event bed is a nonevent



New paper about the Permian-Triassic boundary is South Africa
has been published in the March 2009 issue of âGeologyâ. It argues
that the so-called âevent bedâ that allegedly marks the Permian-
Triassic boundary neither marks it nor can be used to interpreted 
paleoenvironmental changes that occurred during the Permian-
Triassic extinction event. The paper is:
