Abstract

There is general agreement that the Late Ordovician mass extinction is causally related to climate change, but the precise mechanism of the relationship is not well established. A mechanistic understanding the relationship between climate change and extinction is inhibited by uncertainties about the timing, nature and magnitude of climate change and by the lack of a distinct selective extinction pattern. Here we summarize recent and ongoing work aimed at clarifying both of these uncertainties.
