Abstract：The spatial and temporal relationship, and the fundamentally mechanistic association between massive volcanism and contemporaneous changes in paleoenvironment and biodiversity, most notably the connection between large igneous provinces and mass extinctions, remain an increasingly hot topic in Earth Sciences, which attract the attention from not only the scientific community but also the general public. This paper focuses on the Permian geological events and briefly reviews recent progresses in the studies of three Permian Large Igneous Provinces(Tarim, Emeishan, and Siberian)and their potential impact on paleoenvironment and biodiversity. Some controversial problems in this field are highlighted, and perspectives for future study are also discussed.
Key words：Permian Large Igneous Province Tarim Emeishan Siberian Paleoenvironment Biodiversity
