*Relative Size of Class (number of species): small : 1-50, medium: 51-100, large : 100-200, extra-large: > 200

** Subjective Representation of Orders:
Well Represented: Order represented well over all regions (possibly excluding Canyons and Seamount)
Moderatly Represented: Order represented well over some regions
Poorly Represented: Order represented well over no regions (possibly only one to a few references across entire Order)
