Journal Article
Hua, F., Shao, L., Wang, X., Jones, T., Zhang, T., Bond, D., …Hilton, J. (2024). The impact of frequent wildfires during the Permian-Triassic transition: Floral change and terrestrial crisis in southwestern China. Palaeogeography, palaeoclimatology, palaeoecology, 641, Article 112129. https://doi.org/10.1016/j.palaeo.2024.112129

Wildfires are considered to have played an important role in the land plants crisis during the Permian–Triassic (P–T) transition. However, the nature and impact of wildfires in the P–T terrestrial crisis remains unclear. Organic petrology data from a...

Marine snowstorm during the Permian-Triassic mass extinction (2023)
Journal Article
Grasby, S. E., Ardakani, O. H., Liu, X., Bond, D. P. G., Wignall, P. B., & Strachan, L. J. (2024). Marine snowstorm during the Permian-Triassic mass extinction. Geology, 52(2), 120-124. https://doi.org/10.1130/G51497.1

The Permian-Triassic mass extinction (PTME) interval is marked by major excursions in both inorganic and organic carbon (C) isotopes. Carbon cycle models predict that these trends were driven by large increases in productivity, yet organic C-rich roc... Read More about Marine snowstorm during the Permian-Triassic mass extinction.

The great catastrophe: causes of the Permo-Triassic marine mass extinction (2023)
Journal Article
Wignall, P. B., & Bond, D. P. G. (2024). The great catastrophe: causes of the Permo-Triassic marine mass extinction. National Science Review, 11(1), Article nwad273. https://doi.org/10.1093/nsr/nwad273

The marine losses during the Permo-Triassic mass extinction were the worst ever experienced. All groups were badly affected, especially amongst the benthos (e.g. brachiopods, corals, bryozoans, foraminifers, ostracods). Planktonic populations underwe...

Strategies for making geoscience PhD recruitment more equitable (2023)
Journal Article
Fernando, B., Giles, S., Jackson, C., Lawrence, A., Raji, M., Williams, R., …Dowey, N. (2023). Strategies for making geoscience PhD recruitment more equitable. Nature Geoscience, 16(8), 658-660. https://doi.org/10.1038/s41561-023-01241-z

Admission to doctoral study is a crucial step in the academic pipeline, but discriminatory procedures can disproportionately impact students from ethnic minority backgrounds. We show how these policies contribute to inequity in the geosciences and pr... Read More about Strategies for making geoscience PhD recruitment more equitable.

Global oceanic anoxia linked with the Capitanian (Middle Permian) marine mass extinction (2023)
Journal Article
Song, H., Algeo, T., Song, H., Tong, J., Wignall, P., Bond, D. P., …Anbar, A. (2023). Global oceanic anoxia linked with the Capitanian (Middle Permian) marine mass extinction. Earth and planetary science letters, 610, Article 118128. https://doi.org/10.1016/j.epsl.2023.118128

The timing and causation of the Capitanian (late Middle Permian) biocrisis remain controversial. Here, a detailed uranium-isotopic (δ238U) profile was generated for the mid-Capitanian to lower Wuchiapingian of the Penglaitan section (the Guadalupian/...

Middle Jurassic terrestrial environmental and floral changes linked to volcanism: Evidence from the Qinghai-Tibet Plateau, China (2023)
Journal Article
Zhang, P., Yang, M., Lu, J., Jiang, Z., Zhou, K., Liu, H., …Bond, D. P. (2023). Middle Jurassic terrestrial environmental and floral changes linked to volcanism: Evidence from the Qinghai-Tibet Plateau, China. Global and planetary change, 223, Article 104094. https://doi.org/10.1016/j.gloplacha.2023.104094

The breakup of Pangaea and the rapid opening of the Ligurian and Central Atlantic oceans during the Middle Jurassic resulted in widespread volcanism accompanied by significant shifts in global environments, climates, and floras. Although major volcan... Read More about Middle Jurassic terrestrial environmental and floral changes linked to volcanism: Evidence from the Qinghai-Tibet Plateau, China.

An astronomical timescale for the Permian-Triassic mass extinction reveals a two-step, million-year-long terrestrial crisis in South China (2023)
Journal Article
Hua, F., Shao, L., Zhang, T., Bond, D. P., Wang, X., Wang, J., …Hilton, J. (2023). An astronomical timescale for the Permian-Triassic mass extinction reveals a two-step, million-year-long terrestrial crisis in South China. Earth and planetary science letters, 605, Article 118035. https://doi.org/10.1016/j.epsl.2023.118035

The Permian-Triassic Mass Extinction (PTME) is the greatest biotic crisis of the Phanerozoic. In terrestrial settings, the PTME appears to have been diachronous and it has been suggested that losses initiated before the marine crisis. We examine orga...

Remote Sensing, 15(3), Article 695. https://doi.org/10.3390/rs15030695

Constraining the age of formation and repeated movements along fault arrays in superimposed rift basins helps us to better unravel the kinematic history as well as the role of inherited structures in basin evolution. The Inner Moray Firth Basin (IMFB...
