    Proc Natl Acad Sci U S A 98:6261-6. 2001
    ..However, such factors as the current emphasis in the database on North America and Europe still obscure our view of the global history of marine biodiversity. These limitations will be addressed as the database and methods are refined...

    Proc Natl Acad Sci U S A 105:11536-42. 2008
    ..Furthermore, the lack of any significant autocorrelation in the data is inconsistent with macroevolutionary theories of periodicity or self-organized criticality...

    Syst Biol 48:107-18. 1999
    ..The fact that there was an early Cenozoic mammalian radiation is entirely compatible with the existence of a few Cretaceous splits among modern mammal lineages...

    Proc Natl Acad Sci U S A 99:3706-11. 2002
    ..If so, then current estimates of total global diversity could be revised downwards to as low as 3.5-10.5 million species...

    J Alroy
    National Center for Ecological Analysis and Synthesis, University of California, 735 State Street, Suite 300, Santa Barbara, CA 93101, USA
    Science 292:1893-6. 2001
