A morphological analysis of marsupial mammal higher-level phylogenetic relationships
TLDR
Twenty-one marsupial terminal taxa representing all the major radiations of marsupials and 10 outgroups, most of which are exceptionally well-preserved fossils such as Vincelestes, Ukhaatherium, and a few basal metatherian taxa, were investigated, resulting in one most parsimonious tree. Expand
A comprehensive morphological analysis of talpid moles (Mammalia) phylogenetic relationships
TLDR
It is most parsimonious to infer one migration from Eurasia to North America and two back‐migrations to Eurasia, and it is ambiguous if Talpini and Scalopini evolved their full fossorial habits independently or not. Expand
First combined cladistic analysis of marsupial mammal interrelationships.
TLDR
Optimal analyses using direct optimization and those based on the static alignment support the basal positions of peramelians (bandicoots) and Dromiciops ('monito del monte') within Australidelphia, and in all but one case these analyses support a monophyletic Eometatheria, a group consisting of all australidelphians excluding peramelian.

Platyrrhine systematics: a simultaneous analysis of molecular and morphological data.
TLDR
The simultaneous analysis of mitochondrial, nuclear, and morphological data yielded a tree most congruent with that generated with nuclear data and to a lesser degree with the morphological one. Expand
A new genus for the extinct Hispaniolan monkey Saimiri bernensis Rímoli, 1977 : with notes on its systematic position. American Museum novitates ; no. 3134
The extinct Hispaniolan primate heretofore known as Saimiri bernensis is distinct in numerous ways from true squirrel monkeys and all other known Recent mainland platyrrhines. We therefore remove itExpand
THE TARSUS OF UKHAATHERIUM NESSOVI (EUTHERIA, MAMMALIA) FROM THE LATE CRETACEOUS OF MONGOLIA: AN APPRAISAL OF THE EVOLUTION OF THE ANKLE IN BASAL THERIANS
TLDR
Derived states of the ankle of Eutheria are fewer, and the hypothetical ancestors of Metatheria and EutherIA turn out to be more similar to each other than previously suspected. Expand
Epipubic bones in eutherian mammals from the Late Cretaceous of Mongolia
TLDR
The occurrence of epipubic bones in two Cretaceous eutherians suggests that the dramatic modifications connected with typical placental reproduction, may have been later events in the evolution of the Eutheria. Expand
The quaternary cuban platyrrhine Paralouatta varonai and the origin of Antillean monkeys.
TLDR
Cladistic analysis reveals a sister-group relationship between Antillothrix and Paralouatta, followed on the cladogram by Xenothrixand Callicebus, which has an important biogeographic implication: recognition of an Antillean clade assumes only one primate colonization from the South American mainland, not several as previously believed.
