Impacts of the Cretaceous Terrestrial Revolution and KPg Extinction on Mammal Diversification
Molecular phylogenetic analysis, calibrated with fossils, resolves the time frame of the mammalian radiation. Previous analyses of relations, divergence times, and diversification patterns amongExpand
The Placental Mammal Ancestor and the Post–K-Pg Radiation of Placentals
Let There Be Mammals The timing of the evolution and radiation of placental mammals and their most recent common ancestor has long been debated, with many questions surrounding the relationships ofExpand
Molecular phylogeny of the carnivora (mammalia): assessing the impact of increased sampling on resolving enigmatic relationships.
This study analyzed 76 species of Carnivora using a concatenated sequence of 6243 bp from six genes (nuclear TR-i-I, TBG, and IRBP; mitochondrial ND2, CYTB, and 12S rRNA), representing the mostExpand
Single origin of Malagasy Carnivora from an African ancestor
The Carnivora are one of only four orders of terrestrial mammals living in Madagascar today. All four (carnivorans, primates, rodents and lipotyphlan insectivores) are placental mammals with limitedExpand
Evidence for Cenozoic extensional basin development and tectonic inversion south of the flat-slab segment, southern Central Andes, Chile (33°–36°S.L.)
Abstract The mainly volcanic Cenozoic deposits that make up much of the western part of the Principal Cordillera in Central Chile are generally subdivided into two major units: an older Abanico orExpand
South America's earliest rodent and recognition of a new interval of mammalian evolution
THE mid-Cenozoic immigration of rodents and primates to South America (when it was widely isolated by oceans) represents a pre-eminent problem in the biogeographical history of placental mammals. TheExpand
The Tinguiririca Fauna, Chile: Biochronology, paleoecology, biogeography, and a new earliest Oligocene South American Land Mammal 'Age'
Abstract A new South American Land Mammal ‘Age’ (SALMA), the Tinguirirican, is formally established, based on an assemblage of at least 25 taxa from the Chilean Andes (and smaller correlative faunasExpand
Phylogeny of the Carnivora (Mammalia): congruence vs incompatibility among multiple data sets.
The purpose of this study was to determine the higher-level phylogenetic relationships among Carnivora, using a conditional data combination (CDC) approach to analyzing multiple data sets. NewExpand
A Miocene hyperdiverse crocodylian community reveals peculiar trophic dynamics in proto-Amazonian mega-wetlands
Amazonia contains one of the world's richest biotas, but origins of this diversity remain obscure. Onset of the Amazon River drainage at approximately 10.5 Ma represented a major shift in NeotropicalExpand
