Data from: Sampling bias and the fossil record of planktonic foraminifera on land and in the deep sea

Graeme T. Lloyd, Paul N. Pearson, Jeremy R. Young & Andrew B. Smith
Large-scale trends in planktonic foraminiferal diversity have so far been based on utilization of synoptic biostratigraphic range charts. Although this approach ensures the taxonomic consistency and quality of the data being used, it takes no formal account of any sampling biases that might exist in the fossil record. We demonstrate that the occurrence data of planktonic foraminifera, as recorded in the primary literature, are strongly biased by sampling. We do this by demonstrating that raw...
