Only one group of four-limbed vertebrates exists on Earth, while other tetrapod-like fishes are "Based on two decades of research, The Late Devonian Mass Extinction reviews the many theories that have been presented to explain the global mass extinction that struck the earth over million years ago, considering in particular the possibility that the extinction was triggered by multiple impacts of extraterrestrial objects."--Publisher's :// 2 days ago  Devonian extinctions, a series of several global extinction events primarily affecting the marine communities of the Devonian Period ( million to million years ago).

At present it is not possible to connect this series definitively with any single cause. It is probable that they may record a combination of several stresses—such as excessive sedimentation, rapid global warming or In the Late Devonian, large trees evolved and formed the first forests.

As plant life expanded, they used up more carbon dioxide in photosynthesis. When dead plant material decays, carbon dioxide is returned to the atmosphere, but some plant material (e.g., leaves) will be buried in swamps, lakes and rivers.

This buried plant material removes Late Devonian conodonts of northwest Thailand have been described previously by several workers, including Wongwanich and Burrett (), Burrett et al.
