Classification of mammals : above the species level
Embracing more than 5,000 genera, distributed in 425 families and 46 orders, Malcolm C. McKenna and Susan K. Bell's Classification of Mammals is the most comprehensive work to date on the… Expand
Stem Lagomorpha and the Antiquity of Glires
We describe several fossils referable to Gomphos elkema from deposits close to the Paleocene-Eocene boundary at Tsagan Khushu, Mongolia. Gomphos shares a suite of cranioskeletal characters with… Expand
4. Wasatchian Through Duchesnean Biochronology
Holarctic Landmass Rearrangement, Cosmic Events, and Cenozoic Terrestrial Organisms
- M. Mckenna
Fossil mammals from the "Mesaverde" Formation (late Cretaceous, Judithian) of the Bighorn and Wind River basins, Wyoming : with definitions of late Cretaceous North American land-mammal "ages".
Mammalian faunas are documented for the first time from the "Mesaverde" Formation (Late Cretaceous) ofWyoming. Nonmarine fossils from the Bighorn and Wind River basins indicate a Judithian (revised… Expand
A new fossil mammal assemblage from the southern Chilean Andes: implications for geology, geochronology, and tectonics
Abstract A diverse (36 taxa), new fossil terrestrial mammal assemblage has been recovered from the Santacrucian South American Land Mammal ‘Age’ (SALMA; latest Early Miocene) in the southern Andes of… Expand
A Theropod Dinosaur Embryo and the Affinities of the Flaming Cliffs Dinosaur Eggs
An embryonic skeleton of a nonavian theropod dinosaur was found preserved in an egg from Upper Cretaceous rocks in the Gobi Desert of Mongolia. Cranial features identify the embryo as a member of… Expand
Earliest Eutherian Ear Region: A Petrosal Referred to Prokennalestes from the Early Cretaceous of Mongolia
Abstract A right petrosal from the ?Aptian or Albian Khoobur locality is referred on the basis of size and morphology to Prokennalestes trofimovi, the earliest eutherian previously known only from… Expand
Higher taxonomic relationships among extant mammals based on morphology, with selected comparisons of results from molecular data.
Until a few decades ago, phylogenetic relationships among placental orders were ambiguous and usually depicted to radiate as an unresolved "bush." Resolution of this bush by various workers has been… Expand
