The Cretaceous–Cenozoic history of angiosperms resulted in a certain character of the distribution of the number of taxa belonging to different ranks (number of species and genera within a family, S/G ratio in families, and the number of species within a genus). In most cases, such distributions are satisfactorily described by a power law (a Pareto distribution). In logarithmic coordinates, the power function represents a straight line. Empirical curves coincide with this line fairly well… CONTINUE READING
