此外，通过追踪特定类物种的起源和灭绝率，也可以对多样性进行彻底的改变。在这个时候，由于在一个地质时期内，作为一种物种的数量，在一个地质时期内出现或改变的家庭数量是不同的。这种灭绝的生命和起源都清楚地说明了生命中的风险;另一方面，它并没有标准化到地质时代。这一策略或习俗由于被认为是存在时间长度的因素(一般是5 – 10年)而被忽视了，而且许多这些阶段的精确持续时间并不是充满传奇色彩的。
进化速度的鱼是非常通知很高由于寒武纪末阶段(在特定的,一波又一波的agnathans以及牙形刺),正确的方法通过志留纪石炭纪,包围在早期地质时期(灭绝后,发生在二叠纪末),在白垩纪的中点和始新世时代(KT事件之后)。此外，Tetra pod还描述了在晚期和早期石炭纪中鱼的起源率增加，这仅仅是在二叠纪晚期灭绝的一次，而且是曾经的KT事件(Rosenzweig 1995)。
Revolutionization in diversity could additionally be half-tracked by tracing the rate of origination and extinction rate of species of specific class. At this time, the share rates are presented in diverse words as the amount of families arising or altering into extinct for the duration of a geologic period as a quantity of the species that was under existence at that point of time. This life of extinction as well as origination clearly remarks about the risks in life; on the other hand, it is not standardized to geologic time. This strategy or custom was neglected for the years due to the stratigraphic levels of evolution that are considered as the factors of length of existence, which is generally 5-10 years, and also the precise durations of many of those stages are not legendary confidently.
Rate of Evolution in case of fishes were remarkably notified as very high due to the late Cambrian stage (in specific, waves of agnathans, as well as conodonts), right the way through the Silurian period and also Carboniferous, surrounded by the early on geological period (after the extinction that occurred at late Permian period), during the midpoint of Cretaceous and Eocene era (after the KT event). Tetra pods in addition depicting increased rates of origination of fish in the late period and early Carboniferous, just on one occasion the late Permian period extermination, and just the once the KT event (Rosenzweig 1995).
Many handfuls of fossil records for various fishes and tetra pods clearly denote the mass extinction. This late Silurian mass extinction has been reported to affect various fishes, with jawless vertebrate agnathans and placoderms nearly done in. In the assortment of fishes, fundamentally chondrichthyans and sarcopterygians, drastically fell down in numbers during the entire Permian period, and so late Permian mass extinction of animals does not have any effect on them (Rosenzweig 1975).
