Hence the greater number of fossil species known from these younger rocks may simply be because more fossils have been collected from the more plentiful younger rocks. Sepkoski showed that these biases, while certainly affecting the sampling of the fossil record, are not so great as to have changed the conclusion John Phillips reached over a century ago: Through time, the number of species has continued to increase. The curves resulting from Sepkoski's analysis suggest that the earth reached a steady state in species diversity during the Paleozoic Era and then an enormous diversity crash occurred at the end of that era—the First Event.

High in these mountains a suite of strata contain marine fossils: trilobites, brachiopods, and mollusks of early Devonian age. Higher yet the strata change and the fossils characteristic of a marine setting disappear.
