Pterosaur diversity: Untangling the influence of sampling biases, Lagerstätten, and genuine biodiversity signals

Abstract:

Pterosaurs were a diverse and successful group of Mesozoic reptiles with an evolutionary history that extended for approximately 145. Myr. Recent attempts to understand species-richness trajectories for pterosaurs have led to them becoming a focal group for ongoing debate about the importance of sampling biases in determining observed species-richness patterns in the vertebrate fossil record. Here, we reanalyse pterosaur species-richness through time, and make statistical comparisons to proxi...
