Data from: Multiple global radiations in tadpole shrimps challenge the concept of ‘living fossils’

Thomas C. Mathers, Robert L. Hammond, Ronald A. Jenner, Bernd Haenfling & Africa Gomez
‘Living fossils’, a phrase first coined by Darwin, are defined as species with limited recent diversification and high morphological stasis over long periods of evolutionary time. Morphological stasis, however, can potentially lead to diversification rates being underestimated. Notostraca, or tadpole shrimps, are an ancient, globally distributed order of branchiopod crustaceans regarded as ‘living fossils’ because their rich fossil record dates back to the early Devonian and their morphology is highly conserved. Recent phylogenetic reconstructions have...
