Body size, sampling completeness, and extinction risk in the marine fossil record

Jonathan Payne & Noel Heim
Larger body size has long been assumed to correlate with greater risk of extinction, helping to shape body size distributions across the tree of life, but lack of comprehensive size data for fossil taxa have left this hypothesis untested for most higher taxa across the vast majority of evolutionary time. Here we assess the relationship between body size and extinction using a dataset comprising the body sizes, stratigraphic ranges, and occurrence patterns of 9,408 genera...
