TABLE 1. Abbreviations used in the figures and text.

Abbreviation Meaning
PTAPH The probability that a species is not removed from a locality by taphonomic processes
PFORM The probability that a formation is sampled
PLOC The probability that a locality is sampled
PMIST The probability that of a node being subjected to nearest node interchange (i.e., an error is introduced to the phylogeny at that node); in short, the error rate.
PD/LE The probability of dispersal divided by the probability of local extinction.
TDE Taxic diversity estimate
PDE Phylogenetic diversity estimate
RDE Residual diversity estimate

TABLE 2. The full list of parameter variations tested in this study. For each set of parameter values, 100 simulations were carried out. The Spearman’s rho values presented in the figures and Appendix are the means of the results from the 100 simulation.
