For the study of the Late Devonian mass extinction, probably the second largest during the Phanerozoic, more than 40,000 ostracods have been extracted from samples collected close to the Frasnian/Famennian boundary in principal reference sections all over the world. Their study shows that about 75% of all marine species disappeared abruptly close to this boundary.
