Muscular Anatomy of the Forelimbs of the Lesser Grison (Galictis cuja), and a Functional and Phylogenetic Overview of Mustelidae and Other Caniformia
The extrinsic and intrinsic forelimb musculature of the lesser grison (Galictis cuja), a short-legged mustelid of southern South America, is studied for the first time. We present descriptions,Expand

Form and function within a phylogenetic framework: locomotory habits of extant predators and some Miocene Sparassodonta (Metatheria)
In this study, we analysed locomotory habits in extant predators and Sparassodonta species through geometric morphometric techniques and discriminant analyses of the distal humerus in anterior view,Expand

Mandible shape in marsupial and placental carnivorous mammals: a morphological comparative study using geometric morphometrics
We analysed mandible shape of the orders Dasyuromorpha, Didelphimorphia, and Carnivora using two-dimensional geometric morphometrics, in order to explore the relationship between shape, size, andExpand

Locomotion in some small to medium-sized mammals: a geometric morphometric analysis of the penultimate lumbar vertebra, pelvis and hindlimbs.
We assessed the influence of a variety of aspects of locomotion and ecology including gait and locomotor types, maximal running speed, home range, and body size on postcranial shape variation inExpand

The Functional and Phylogenetic Implications of the Myology of the Lumbar Region, Tail, and Hind Limbs of the Lesser Grison (Galictis cuja)
Mustelids are a morphofunctionally diversified group. However, there are no descriptions of the postcranial musculature of South American mustelid species except for some comments from the 19thExpand

The more, the better: the use of multiple landmark configurations to solve the phylogenetic relationships in musteloids.
Although the use of landmark data to study shape changes along a phylogenetic tree has become a common practice in evolutionary studies, the role of this sort of data for the inference ofExpand

Dental shape variation of Neogene Pachyrukhinae (Mammalia, Notoungulata, Hegetotheriidae): systematics and evolutionary implications for the late Miocene Paedotherium species
Paedotherium was the last representative of the pachyrukhines (Notoungulata, Hegetotheriidae), a small rabbit- or caviomorph rodent-like clade, with hypsodont and simplified dentition. In contrast toExpand

The Structure of the Mammalian Predator Guild in the Santa Cruz Formation (Late Early Miocene)
The Santa Cruz Formation (late early Miocene, Santacrucian age) registers 11 species of mammalian predators (Metatheria, Sparassodonta). Together with large carnivorous flightless birds, theyExpand
