Relationships of Cetacea (Artiodactyla) Among Mammals: Increased Taxon Sampling Alters Interpretations of Key Fossils and Character Evolution
Background Integration of diverse data (molecules, fossils) provides the most robust test of the phylogeny of cetaceans. Positioning key fossils is critical for reconstructing the character changeExpand

Impact of increased character sampling on the phylogeny of Cetartiodactyla (Mammalia): combined analysis including fossils
The phylogenetic position of Cetacea (whales, dolphins and porpoises) is an important exemplar problem for combined data parsimony analyses because the clade is ancient and includes many well‐knownExpand

An Anatomical and Phylogenetic Study of the Osteology of the Petrosal of Extant and Extinct Artiodactylans (Mammalia) and Relatives
Abstract I describe and figure petrosal bones for a sample of 35 (12 extinct, 23 extant) artiodactylans, perissodactylans, †mesonychids, and archaic ungulates. Detailed herein are the cladisticExpand

First Mesozoic Record of the Stingray Myliobatis wurnoensis from Mali and a Phylogenetic Analysis of Myliobatidae Incorporating Dental Characters
New specimens, including the first record of lower dental plates, of the extinct myliobatid Myliubatis wurnoensis were recovered from the Maastrichtian (Late Cretaceous) of the Iullemmeden Basin,Expand
