Reappraisal of the fossil seal Phoca vitulinoides from the Neogene of the North Sea Basin, with bearings on the geological age, phylogenetic affinities, and locomotion of a new diminutive Miocen
Among secondary aquatic tetrapods, pinnipeds are among the few taxa to retain the capacity to move on land. Hence, pinnipeds can be regarded as a group which’ transition from land to sea is still inExpand
