Cenozoic Mammals of Africa
TLDR
This magnificent volume is a clear and comprehensive review of the African mammalian fossil record over the past 65 million years and is an essential resource for anyone interested in the evolutionary history of Africa and the diversification of its mammals. Expand
Plio-Pleistocene Carnivora of eastern Africa: species richness and turnover patterns
TLDR
The data support the hypothesis that the modern carnivoran guild of eastern Africa originated relatively recently, mostly within the last million years, and there is no support in these data for a turnover pulse in Carnivora between 3 and 2 Mya. Expand
Spatial Response of Mammals to Late Quaternary Environmental Fluctuations
Analyses of fossil mammal faunas from 2945 localities in the United States demonstrate that the geographic ranges of individual species shifted at different times, in different directions, and atExpand
Constraint and adaptation in the bone-cracking canid Osteoborus (Mammalia: Canidae)
TLDR
Evolution within borophagines involved an elaboration of patterns already set at the group's inception, creating an evolutionary trend which was mediated by the constraint on the bone-cracking morphology, which may be due to selection or sorting, or may be stochastic. Expand
The spread of grass-dominated habitats in Turkey and surrounding areas during the Cenozoic: Phytolith evidence
Abstract The arrival of hipparionine horses in the eastern Mediterranean region around 11 Ma was traditionally thought to mark the simultaneous westward expansion of savanna vegetation acrossExpand
A peculiar climbing Megalonychidae from the Pleistocene of Peru and its implication for sloth history
TLDR
The discovery of D. nordenskioldi underscores the great adaptability of Tardigrada: an arboreally adapted form is now added to the already known terrestrial, subarboreal, and aquatic (marine and freshwater) fossil sloths. Expand
