Data from: The greatest hits of all time: the histories of dominant genera in the fossil record

Roy E. Plotnick & Peter Wagner
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 occurrence data from the Paleobiology Database, we determined which genera belonging to six target groups ranked among the most common within each of 49 temporal bins based on occurrences. The turnover among these dominant taxa from bin-to-bin was then determined for each of these...
