Ammonium ocean following the end-Permian mass extinction (2019)
Journal Article
Sun, Y. D., Zulla, M. J., Joachimski, M. M., Bond, D. P. G., Wignall, P. B., Zhang, Z. T., & Zhang, M. H. (in press). Ammonium ocean following the end-Permian mass extinction. Earth and planetary science letters,

The aftermath of end-Permian mass extinction was marked by a ~5 million year interval of poorly-understood, extreme environments that likely hindered biotic recovery. Contemporary nitrogen isotope variations are considered, using a new conceptual mod... Read More

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. https://doi.org/10.1016/j.palaeo.2016.11.005

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

Insight into tube-building behaviour and palaeoecology of some agglutinating worms from the Upper Devonian of Nevada, USA (2015)
Journal Article
Zatoń, M., & Bond, D. P. G. (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. https://doi.org/10.1016/j.palaeo.2015.12.020

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

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
