Earth's biggest mass extinction event, 252 million years ago, killed about 90 per cent of the marine species around at that time. This was a much bigger event than the extinction of the dinosaurs. Before this point, the seas were rich with corals, sponges and shells, but afterwards the seafloor became a very strange and different world, dominated by microbial organisms. Discuss this world-changing extinction and the popular ideas about what caused it.
