  1. Volcanic Eruptions Triggered the End-Triassic ExtinctionMore than 200 million years ago, a massive extinction decimated 76 percent of marine and terrestrial species, marking the end of the Triassic period and the onset of the Jurassic. This devastating event cleared the way for dinosaurs to dominate Earth for the next 135 million years, taking over ecological niches formerly occupied by other marine and terrestrial species.It’s not entirely clear what caused the end-Triassic extinction, although most scientists agree on a likely scenario: over a relatively short period of time, massive volcanic eruptions from a large region known as the Central Atlantic Magmatic Province (CAMP) spewed forth huge amounts of lava and gas, including carbon dioxide, sulfur and methane. This sudden release of gases into the atmosphere may have created intense global warming and acidification of the oceans that ultimately killed off thousands of plant and animal species.Read more: http://www.laboratoryequipment.com/news/2013/03/volcanic-eruptions-triggered-end-triassic-extinction
