Volcanic Period Paved the Way for Dino Dominance
Rebecca Morelle, BBC
A million-year-long period of extreme volcanic activity most likely paved the way for the dawn of the dinosaurs, a study suggests.Scientists have analysed ancient rocks and have found traces of emissions from huge volcanic eruptions that happened about 200 million years ago.This would have led to one of the largest mass extinctions on record, enabling dinosaurs to become dominant.
