Further evidence of the end of ancient life on Earth discovered from Pakistan and China
Karachi: About 252 million years ago, a large number of living things perished on Earth, which is called Permian Tricycle Mass Extension (PTME). Now the latest evidence of this has come from Pakistan and China.
In the millions of years of the Earth’s biological history, there have been many periods when large forms of life on Earth were on the verge of extinction. This process was caused by an unusual emission of carbon dioxide and is thought to have emitted 6 times more carbon dioxide than usual.
About 250 million years ago, 90% of the sea species and 70% of the vertebrates on land were extinct in the PTME, and fossils of various animals are found in such old rocks.
The place where the traces of it are found is called by the geologists Permian Tricus Boundary. Unusual emissions of many gases, including carbon dioxide, resulted in extreme heat and the living began to die of exhaustion.
