Uncovering the diversification history of marine tetrapods: Ecology influences the effect of geological sampling biases

Abstract:

Mesozoic terrestrial vertebrates gave rise to sea-going forms independently among the ichthyosaurs, sauropterygians, thalattosaurs, crocodyliforms, turtles, squamates, and other lineages. Many passed through a shallow marine phase before becoming adapted for open ocean life. This allows quantitative testing of factors affecting our view of the diversity of ancient organisms inhabiting different oceanic environments. We implemented tests of correlation using generalized difference transformed ...
