On the causes of mass extinctions (2016)
Journal Article
Bond, D. P., & Grasby, S. E. (2017). On the causes of mass extinctions. Palaeogeography, palaeoclimatology, palaeoecology, 478, (3-29). doi:10.1016/j.palaeo.2016.11.005. ISSN 0031-0182

The temporal link between large igneous province (LIP) eruptions and at least half of the major extinctions of the Phanerozoic implies that large scale volcanism is the main driver of mass extinction. Here we review almost twenty biotic crises betwee... Read More

Climate warming, euxinia and carbon isotope perturbations during the Carnian (Triassic) Crisis in South China (2016)
Journal Article
Bond, D., Grasby, S., Joachimski, M., Lai, X., Sun, S., Sun, Y., …Zhang, Z. (2016). Climate warming, euxinia and carbon isotope perturbations during the Carnian (Triassic) Crisis in South China. Earth and planetary science letters, 444, (88-100). doi:10.1016/j.epsl.2016.03.037. ISSN 0012-821X

The Carnian Humid Episode (CHE), also known as the Carnian Pluvial Event, and associated biotic changes are major enigmas of the Mesozoic record in western Tethys. We show that the CHE also occurred in eastern Tethys (South China), suggestive of a mu... Read More

Insight into tube-building behaviour and palaeoecology of some agglutinating worms from the Upper Devonian of Nevada, USA (2016)
Journal Article
Zaton, M., Bond, D. P. G., & Zatoń, M. (2016). Insight into tube-building behaviour and palaeoecology of some agglutinating worms from the Upper Devonian of Nevada, USA. Palaeogeography, palaeoclimatology, palaeoecology, 445, (138-146). doi:10.1016/j.palaeo.2015.12.020. ISSN 0031-0182

Agglutinated worm tubes from the Upper Devonian of the Devils Gate section in Nevada, USA are reported for the first time, filling a major gap in their Palaeozoic fossil record. Two small (5 mm and 6.7 mm in length) tubes are composed entirely of ten... Read More

Progressive environmental deterioration in northwestern Pangea leading to the latest Permian extinction (2015)
Journal Article
Bond, D. P. G., Beauchamp, B., Blomeier, D., Galloway, J. M., Grasby, S. E., Piepjohn, K., …Wignall, P. (2015). Progressive environmental deterioration in northwestern Pangea leading to the latest Permian extinction. Geological Society of America Bulletin, 127(9-10), 1331-1347. doi:10.1130/b31197.1

Stratigraphic records from northwestern Pangea provide unique insight into global processes that occurred during the Latest Permian Extinction (LPE). We examined a detailed geochemical record of the Festningen Section, Spitsbergen. A stepwise extinct... Read More

Large igneous provinces and mass extinctions: an update (2014)
Book
Bond, D. P. G., & Wignall, P. B. (2014). Large igneous provinces and mass extinctions: an update. Geological Society of America Special Papers, 29-55. Geological Society of America. doi:10.1130/2014.2505(02)

The temporal link between mass extinctions and large igneous provinces is well known. Here, we examine this link by focusing on the potential climatic effects of large igneous province eruptions during several extinction crises that show the best cor... Read More

The astronomical rhythm of Late-Devonian climate change (Kowala section, Holy Cross Mountains, Poland) (2013)
Journal Article
De Vleeschouwer, D., Rakociński, M., Racki, G., Bond, D., Sobień, K., & Claeys, P. (2013). The astronomical rhythm of Late-Devonian climate change (Kowala section, Holy Cross Mountains, Poland). Earth and planetary science letters, 365, (25-37). doi:10.1016/j.epsl.2013.01.016. ISSN 0012-821X

Rhythmical alternations between limestone and shales or marls characterize the famous Kowala section, Holy Cross Mountains, Poland. Two intervals of this section were studied for evidence of orbital cyclostratigraphy. The oldest interval spans the Fr... Read More

The Middle Permian (Capitanian) mass extinction on land and in the oceans (2010)
Journal Article
Bond, D. P. G., Hilton, J., Wignall, P. B., Ali, J. R., Stevens, L. G., Sun, Y., & Lai, X. (2010). The Middle Permian (Capitanian) mass extinction on land and in the oceans. Earth-Science Reviews, 102(1-2), (100-116). doi:10.1016/j.earscirev.2010.07.004. ISSN 0012-8252

A Middle Permian mass extinction, first discovered in 1994, has become known as the "end-Guadalupian event" in the literature. However, recent studies of foraminifera- and brachiopod-range truncations in conodont-dated sections on the South China Blo... Read More

The mid-Capitanian (Middle Permian) mass extinction and carbon isotope record of South China (2010)
Journal Article
Cope, H., Védrine, S., Shao, L. Y., Newton, R. J., Sun, Y. D., Lai, X. L., …Bond, D. P. (2010). The mid-Capitanian (Middle Permian) mass extinction and carbon isotope record of South China. Palaeogeography, palaeoclimatology, palaeoecology, 292(1-2), 282-294. doi:10.1016/j.palaeo.2010.03.056

Conodont, C isotope and fossil and facies data are presented for the Capitanian (Middle Permian) mass extinction record seen in platform carbonates (Maokou and Wuchiaping formations) of South China, where limestones interdigitate with the volcanic su... Read More

Volcanism, mass extinction, and carbon isotope fluctuations in the Middle Permian of China (2009)
Journal Article
Wignall, P. B., Sun, Y., Bond, D. P. G., Izon, G., Newton, R. J., Védrine, S., …Bottrell, S. H. (2009). Volcanism, mass extinction, and carbon isotope fluctuations in the Middle Permian of China. Science, 324(5931), (1179-1182). doi:10.1126/science.1171956. ISSN 0036-8075

The 260-million-year-old Emeishan volcanic province of southwest China overlies and is interbedded with Middle Permian carbonates that contain a record of the Guadalupian mass extinction. Sections in the region thus provide an opportunity to directly... Read More
