Title of Contract, Award, or Gift: Collaborative Research: Terrestrial Late Permian to Early Triassic Earth Systems in NE Pangea: Insights into the Tempo, Effects and Causes of the End-Permian Mass Extinction

Name of Granting or Contracting Agency/Entity: Natl Science Foundation

Program Title: N/A
CFDA Linked: Geosciences


We propose to test the hypothesis that terrestrial ecosystems of the Bogdan Mountains suffered dramatic extinction and restructuring at the end of the Permian, possibly coeval with events in the marine realm. Alternatively, we consider a hypothesis that mid-paleolatitudes of northeastern Pangea may not have been affected, suggesting a globally heterogeneous response of the biosphere to the end Permian crisis.
