Data from: Taxonomic and numerical sufficiency in depth- and salinity-controlled marine paleocommunities

Martin Zuschin, Rafal Nawrot, Mathias Harzhauser, Oleg Mandic & Adam Tomašových
Numerical and taxonomic resolution of compositional datasets affects investigator’s ability to detect and measure relationships between communities and environmental factors. We test whether varying numerical (untransformed, square-root- and fourth-root transformed relative abundance, and presence-absence data) and taxonomic resolutions (species, genera, families) reveal different insights into Lower to Middle Miocene molluscan communities along bathymetric and salinity gradients. The marine subtidal has a more even species-abundance distribution, a higher number of rare species, and a higher species-family...
