Muscular Anatomy of the Forelimbs of the Lesser Grison (Galictis cuja), and a Functional and Phylogenetic Overview of Mustelidae and Other Caniformia
The extrinsic and intrinsic forelimb musculature of the lesser grison (Galictis cuja), a short-legged mustelid of southern South America, is studied for the first time. We present descriptions,Expand

Contrasting Phylogenetic and Diversity Patterns in Octodontoid Rodents and a New Definition of the Family Abrocomidae
Octodontoidea is the most species-rich clade among hystricomorph rodents. Based on a combined parsimony analysis of morphological and molecular data of extinct and extant species, we analyze theExpand

Form and function within a phylogenetic framework: locomotory habits of extant predators and some Miocene Sparassodonta (Metatheria)
In this study, we analysed locomotory habits in extant predators and Sparassodonta species through geometric morphometric techniques and discriminant analyses of the distal humerus in anterior view,Expand

Ecological and phylogenetic influence on mandible shape variation of South American caviomorph rodents (Rodentia: Hystricomorpha)
We analyzed mandible shape variation of 17 genera belonging to three superfamilies (Cavioidea, Chinchilloidea, and Octodontoidea) of South American caviomorph rodents using geometric morphometrics.Expand

Locomotion in some small to medium-sized mammals: a geometric morphometric analysis of the penultimate lumbar vertebra, pelvis and hindlimbs.
We assessed the influence of a variety of aspects of locomotion and ecology including gait and locomotor types, maximal running speed, home range, and body size on postcranial shape variation inExpand

The humerus of South American caviomorph rodents: shape, function and size in a phylogenetic context
South American caviomorph rodents comprise four major lineages encompassing wide taxonomic and ecological diversity, but the morphological diversity of their postcranial skeleton has not beenExpand

The Functional and Phylogenetic Implications of the Myology of the Lumbar Region, Tail, and Hind Limbs of the Lesser Grison (Galictis cuja)
Mustelids are a morphofunctionally diversified group. However, there are no descriptions of the postcranial musculature of South American mustelid species except for some comments from the 19thExpand

Two- Versus Three-Dimensional Morphometric Approaches in Macroevolution: Insight from the Mandible of Caviomorph Rodents
Morphological variation is one of the most studied dimensions of evolutionary biology, given its close relationship with the ecological aspects of biological diversification. In this work we examineExpand

The Role of Evolutionary Integration in the Morphological Evolution of the Skull of Caviomorph Rodents (Rodentia: Hystricomorpha)
The mammalian cranium is a complex structure composed by three partially independent modules: face, cranial base and cranial vault. At the same time, it interacts with the mandible by sharing theExpand
