[220] � This is a new area of study, with current findings quite speculative, but we can be confident that many clades were born and went extinct, all the way up to the phylum level and maybe even higher, particularly in the Ediacaran and Cambrian periods, without leaving a trace in today�s known fossil record.� Specialists in these areas are always calling for more fossil-hunting, analysis with new tools, and the like. �At a bout 502 mya, another extinction event wiped out about 40% of marine genera, probably triggered by anoxia.
