Abstract
The presence of siderophile-enriched material at the Cretaceous-Tertiary boundary suggests
that the major extinctions of living species could result from cosmic catastrophes. The flnding
of the same kind of material at the Permian-Triassic boundary would be important to conflrm the
influence of cosmic phenomena on extinctions. The study of the Meishan section, in China, does not
provide any support to this view. Iridium, the best tracer of cosmic material, has not been detected
in any of the 18 samples collected around the boundary. A relation between the Permian-Triassic
extinction and a cosmic collision therefore remains hypothetical.
