Summary of GLS multiple regression models for taxic diversity during the Mesozoic (shallow marine taxic diversity, total taxic diversity) and Jurassic–Cretaceous (open ocean taxic diversity). All models include stage duration. AR order indicates the order of the autoregressive model. ‘Model rank’ indicates the rank order of models based on Akaike weights. Models with Akaike weight less than 1/8th that of the best model are not ranked. Model ranks in brackets indicate heteroscedasticity of model residuals, suggesting that the model's fit is overestimated
