Probabilities that a genus was alive at a fossil site

Shown here are the probabilities that a genus was alive at a fossil site, obtained from a dataset of fossil occurrences by Markov chain Monte Carlo method. The dataset consists of 139 genera of large land mammals (horizontal axis) and 124 fossil sites from the European late Cenozoic (vertical axis). The sites have been ordered by one of their most likely temporal sequences, with the oldest site at the bottom (see Puolamäki et al).
