Choose two consecutive sections of geologic time (for example, Triassic and Jurassic, or Cambrian and Ordovician). What distinguishes these periods from one another? What was going on geologically then? What kinds of plant and animal life were common during these periods?
Weegy: The Triassic–Jurassic extinction event marks the boundary between the Triassic and Jurassic periods, 199.6 million years ago,[1] and is one of the major extinction events of the Phanerozoic eon, profoundly affecting life on land and in the oceans. [ In the seas a whole class (conodonts)[2] and twenty percent of all marine families disappeared. On land, all large crurotarsans (non-dinosaurian archosaurs) other than crocodilians, some remaining therapsids, and many of the large amphibians were wiped out. At least half of the species now known to have been living on Earth at that time went extinct. This event vacated terrestrial ecological niches, allowing the dinosaurs to assume the dominant roles in the Jurassic period. This event happened in less than 10,000 years and occurred just before Pangaea started to break apart. In the area of Tübingen (Germany), a Triassic-Jurassic bonebed can be found, which is characteristic for this boundary.[3] Statistical analysis of marine losses at this time suggests that the decrease in diversity was caused more by a decrease in speciation than by an increase in extinctions. Several explanations for this event have been suggested, but all have unanswered challenges: Gradual climate change, sea-level fluctuations or a pulse of oceanic acidification[5] during the late Triassic reached a tipping point. However, this does not explain the suddenness of the extinctions in the marine realm. Asteroid impact, but so far no impact crater of sufficient size has been dated to coincide with the Triassic–Jurassic boundary. ] (More)
