Do the number of descriptions of taxa, at verious ranks, follow a mathematical curve? As in species per genus, per family? Are recently described taxa following a curve more closely?
I wish that I could use All known taxonomic names, status and ranks to obtain the following data: Simply numbers of taxa at various ranks (species per genus, per family, etc.) in order to answer the following biological research question:
Do the number of descriptions of taxa, at verious ranks, follow a mathematical curve? As in species per genus, per family? Are recently described taxa following a curve more closely?

Is general taxonomy underlain by physical/mathematical principles, for which formalization might guide future study?
