Evidence for trait-based dominance in occupancy among fossil taxa and the decoupling of macroecological and macroevolutionary success
(University of Chicago Press, 2018-03-21)
Biological systems provide examples of differential success among taxa, from ecosystems with a few dominant species (ecological success) to clades that possess far more species than sister-clades (macroevolutionary success). ...
The greatest hits of all time: the histories of dominant genera in the fossil record
(Paleontological Society, 2018-08-01)
Certain taxa are noticeably common within collections, widely distributed, and frequently long-lived. We have examined these dominant genera as compared to rarer genera, with a focus on their temporal histories. Using ...
