Life goes on for marine ecosystems after cataclysmic mass extinction
Correct me if I'm wrong, but aren't our links about different extinction events?  That link is about the Triassic-Jurassic extinction event (~202 mya), while my link is about the Permian–Triassic extinction event (~252 mya)

If the conclusion to be drawn is that extinction events can but don't necessarily lead to significant ecological changes, I'm fine with that.

That is why I keep live trilobites in my aquarium ;-)

I didn't say my post was related. Just thought it was interesting.

Summary:
One of the largest global mass extinctions did not fundamentally change marine ecosystems, scientists have found.

Still waters run deep, and hydrovents support life that does not survive on the surface.
