Data from: Spatiotemporal variation in completeness of the early cynodont fossil record and its implications for mammalian evolutionary history

Grace Varnham, Philip Mannion & Christian Kammerer
Mammals are the only surviving group of Cynodontia, a synapsid clade that first appears in the fossil record in the late Permian, ~260 million years ago. Here, using three metrics that capture skeletal completeness, we quantify the quality of the early cynodont fossil record in time and space to evaluate the impact of sampling and preservational biases on our understanding of the group’s evolutionary history. There is no consistent global sampling signal for early cynodonts....
