Did Cooling Oceans Trigger Ordovician Biodiversification? Evidence from Conodont Thermometry

Trotter, Julie; Williams, Ian; Barnes, Christopher; Lécuyer, Christophe; Nicoll, Robert

Description

The Ordovician Period, long considered a supergreenhouse state, saw one of the greatest radiations of life in Earth's history. Previous temperature estimates of up to ∼70°C have spawned controversial speculation that the oxygen isotopic composition of
