Phylogenetic Analyses of Postcranial Skeletal Morphology in Didelphid Marsupials
Abstract In this study I provide a phylogenetic hypothesis for didelphid Marsupials including a suite of 114 postcranial characters. The postcranial evidence was cladistically analyzed separately andExpand

Abstract Postweaning development of the skull of Didelphis albiventris was studied in juveniles (3.5–8 months), subadults (7.5–9.5 months), and adults (>9.5 months). Analysis of allometry of 15 skullExpand

Post-weaning cranial ontogeny in two bandicoots (Mammalia, Peramelomorphia, Peramelidae) and comparison with carnivorous marsupials.
The ontogeny of the skull has been studied in several marsupial groups such as didelphids, microbiotheriids, and dasyurids. Here, we describe and compare the post-weaning ontogeny of the skull in twoExpand

Cranial ontogeny and sexual dimorphism in two new world monkeys: Alouatta caraya (Atelidae) and Cebus apella (Cebidae)
Pattern of skull development and sexual dimorphism was studied in Cebus apella and Alouatta caraya using univariate, bivariate, and multivariate statistics. In both species, sexual dimorphismExpand

Molecular phylogenetics of mouse opossums: new findings on the phylogeny of Thylamys (Didelphimorphia, Didelphidae)
The mouse opossums of the genus Thylamys constitute a group of species mainly adapted to open xeric‐like habitats and restricted to the southern portion of South America. We used molecular dataExpand

Taxonomy of the southernmost populations of Philander (Didelphimorphia, Didelphidae), with implications for the systematics of the genus
The taxonomic identities of populations of Philander Brisson of Argentina are still unclear. Philander frenatus (Olfers) isthe only species assigned to the country, a conclusion based on incompleteExpand

Comparative Postnatal Ontogeny of the Skull in Dromiciops gliroides (Marsupialia: Microbiotheriidae)
Abstract Dromiciops gliroides is the single extant representative of the marsupial family Microbiotheriidae. The importance of D. gliroides stems from its peculiar cranial anatomy (specifically theExpand

Comparative postnatal ontogeny of the skull in the australidelphian metatherian Dasyurus albopunctatus (Marsupialia: Dasyuromorpha: Dasyuridae)
We describe the cranial ontogeny of an australidelphian marsupial, Dasyurus albopunctatus, using a combination of qualitative and quantitative approaches. We examined in detail qualitativeExpand
