biotic radiations, including those Paleozoic major radiations recognized in the marine realm by RUBAN (2010). Radiation (sensu lato) is an increase in the biodiversityfrom the minimum to the maximum. If the minimumwas below the

the previous unprecedented biodiversitylevel and the maximum was above it, the only part ofthe radiation corresponded to the marine biodiversityaddition (Fig. 1). And in those rare cases, when thebiodiversity reached unprecedented

One may propose that either dispersal or isolation of marine organisms might havebeen a factor of their radiation (e.g., see RUBAN2010). This means that the global connectivity ofshelves or, in contrast, their separation
