Environmental interpretation of fossil assemblages requires an accurate reconstruction of the community from which the assemblage was derived, which in turn depends on the quality of a comparative model usually based on the study of modern equivalents. The degree of inaccuracy introduced by taphonomic and other types of bias is often difficult to assess and the suitability of comparative models has rarely been addressed in this light. Here we apply a recently developed method to assess the bias… CONTINUE READING
