The Evolutionary History and Diversity of Australian Mammals
TLDR
The late Oligocene to middle Miocene record documents the highest levels of biodiversity known for the continent, comparabie to that which characterises the lowland rainforests of Borneo and Brazil, as well as dominated by bats and rhinolophoids. Expand
Current status of species-level representation in faunas from selected fossil localities in the Riversleigh World Heritage Area, northwestern Queensland
Current lists of species-level representation in faunas from 80 Cenozoic fossil localities at the Riversleigh World Heritage Area have been compiled by review of recorded occurrences of taxa obtainedExpand
The skull of Ekaltadeta ima (Marsupialia, Hypsiprymnodontidae?); an analysis of some marsupial cranial features and a re-investigation of propleopine phylogeny, with notes on the inference of
TLDR
Preliminary results of investigation into dietary habitus indicate that Propleopinae represents a radiation of medium- to large-sized omnivorous kangaroos, and it is reiterated that a tendency toward camivory might be inferred from the relative importance of high amplitude vertical shearing versus horizontal shearing and/or crushing elements in the dentition.

IMPLICATIONS OF A NEW SPECIES OF THE OLIGO-MIOCENE KANGAROO (MARSUPIALIA: MACROPODOIDEA) NAMBAROO, FROM THE RIVERSLEIGH WORLD HERITAGE AREA, QUEENSLAND, AUSTRALIA
TLDR
Functional-adaptive analysis of the hindlimb and pedal elements suggests consistent use of quadrupedal progression rather than true hopping in N. gillespieae, which supports recent revisions to the classification of kangaroos, which recognize Balbaridae as the most basal macropodoid family-level taxon.

Dating megafaunal extinction on the Pleistocene Darling Downs, eastern Australia: the promise and pitfalls of dating as a test of extinction hypotheses
A key to understanding Late Pleistocene megafaunal extinction dynamics is knowledge of megafaunal ecological response(s) to long-term environmental perturbations. Strategically, that requiresExpand
Wanburoo hilarus gen . et sp . nov . , a lophodont bulungamayine kangaroo ( Marsupialia : Macropodoidea : Bulungamayinae ) from the Miocene deposits of Riversleigh , northwestern Queensland
Wanburoo hilarus gen. et sp. novo is described on the basis of specimens recovered from a number of Riversleigh sites ranging in estimated age from early Middle Miocene to early Late Miocene. The newExpand
Primitive macropodids from Riversleigh, north-western Queensland
Three new species of macropodids, Ganawamaya acris gen. et sp. nov., G. omala sp. nov., and G. aediculis sp. nov., are described from the Early to Mid Miocene limestone deposits of Riversleigh,Expand
Pleistocene frogs from the Darling Downs, southeastern Queensland, and their palaeoenvironmental significance
Systematic collecting from fluvial late Pleistocene deposits from the Darling Downs, southeast Queensland, Australia, has led to the recovery of the first fossil frogs from the region, ail from theExpand
Ganguroo robustiter, sp. nov. (Macropodoidea, Marsupialia), a Middle to Early Late Miocene Basal Macropodid from Riversleigh World Heritage Area, Australia
ABSTRACT Cranial and dental remains of the middle to early late Miocene macropodid kangaroo, Ganguroo robustiter, sp. nov., are described. Postcranial remains of G. robustiter were previouslyExpand
