News from Science


Massive volcanic eruptions likely killed off more than 90% of ocean species and 75% of land species almost 252 million years ago, but we don't know exactly when the eruptions happened. Now, studies reveal that volcanoes began erupting 300,000 years before the onset of Earth's largest extinctions.
