The late Paleozoic and early Mesozoic was a time of tremendous upheaval on Earth with severe climatic change and biotic crises. These events, which represent Earth systems' response to changing environmental drivers, are the focus of our research. Although climate and biotic changes are often considered as separate entities, we consider them to be part of an environmental continuum of results ensuing from common driving mechanisms (i.e., Fischer, 1982; Berner, 2004).

Glaciation during the late Paleozoic is arguably one of the most important climatic events of the Phanerozoic, as it is hypothesized that this event dramatically influenced Earth's...
