Stratigraphy Around the Permian–Triassic Boundary of South China, edited by Wei-hong He, G. R. Shi, Jian-xin Yu, Dao-Liang Chu, Ke-Xin Zhang, Hai-Shui Jiang, Ting-Lu Yang, Yi-Fan Xiao

This book timely provides high-quality records of 32 PTB sections across different depositional settings from terrestrial to marine facies in South China, including descriptions of lithologies, high-resolution correlation of key boundaries and fossil occurrences at each section. This book also analyzes the patterns and processes of the community and ecosystem evolution over space and through time in the lead to the end-Permian mass extinction, and critically analyzes the mostly debated hypothesis, anoxia and volcanism, which were considered as the causes of mass extinction, based on the data from the studied sections of South China, together with materials from other regions of the world
