A new unified theory of mass extinction that identifies the primary cause for the 'Big Five' mass extinctions as a gravitational one. The theory proposed in this book posits a lowered surface gravity as a result of the coalescing of the continents that formed the supercontinent Pangea. The linkage of continental tectonic plate movement and the shifting of the Earth's inner iron core is described and is the underlying basis for changes in surface gravity. The gigantism of the sauropod dinosaurs and other Mesozoic life forms are attributed to reduced surface gravity as well as their gradual extinction as Pangea broke apart, resulting in increased gravitation. The rapid fall and rise of global sea levels during periods of mass extinction, unexplained by current mass extinction theories, is readily explained by this theory. The diverse morphological changes of the ammonites during the late Mesozoic Era are posited as an evolutionary response to increasing surface gravitation. The theory explains the coincidence of massive flood basalt volcanism and extinction periods as well as the uncanny coincidence of volcanism, bolide impact and extinction at the K-T boundary.
