Model-based analysis of postcranial osteology of marsupials from the Palaeocene of Itaboraí (Brazil) and the phylogenetics and biogeography of Metatheria
Over 130 specimens of metatherian bones (predominantly long bones, one scapula, and several innominates and unguals) from the Palaeocene Itaborai fissures of Brazil are described and analyzed from aExpand

The Mongolian Late Cretaceous Asiatherium, and the early phylogeny and paleobiogeography of Metatheria
ABSTRACT The skull and skeleton of the Mongolian Late Cretaceous (Barungoyotian) marsupial Asiatherium are described, illustrated, and compared to various therian taxa. The study supports theExpand

Rodent and Lagomorph Morphotype Adaptations, Origins, and Relationships: Some Postcranial Attributes Analyzed
The literature on postcranials, whether descriptive or analytical, paleontological or neontological, is amazingly scanty for the largest of the mammalian orders, the Rodentia. Although some excellentExpand

Phylogenetic Relationships and a Classification of the Eutherian Mammalia
It is remarkable that the enormous increase in the fossil evidence, new facts from the study of living mammals, and the promising rise of molecular studies have in fact had less than the usuallyExpand

Diagnosis and Differentiation of the Order Primates
We contrast our approach to a phylogenetic diagnosis of the order Primates, and its various supraspecific taxa, with definitional proce- dures. The order, which we divide into the semiordersExpand

Cretaceous Therian Tarsals and the Metatherian-Eutherian Dichotomy
Diverse metatherian and eutherian tarsal remains from the Late Cretaceous (middle-late Turonian) Bissekty Formation, Kyzylkum Desert, Uzbekistan (ca 90 MYA) are described. Their functional andExpand

Mammalian Distal Humeri from the Late Cretaceous of Uzbekistan
We describe mammalian distal humeri recovered from the Bissekty Formation, Dzharakuduk, Kyzylkum Desert, Uzbekistan (90 Ma). Isolated elements were sorted into groups that likely correspond toExpand
