Paleogeography of Middle Permian

A knowledge of the paleogeographic context is essential to properly understand global patterns of climate change, faunal and floral distributions, ecology, evolution and extinctions. For my Permian work, I've used maps produced by my colleague Fred Ziegler and others at the Paleogeographic Atlas Project (PGAP), The University of Chicago. They remain the most detailed set of Permian global paleogeographic maps available.
