Impacts of the Cretaceous Terrestrial Revolution and KPg Extinction on Mammal Diversification
Molecular phylogenetic analysis, calibrated with fossils, resolves the time frame of the mammalian radiation. Previous analyses of relations, divergence times, and diversification patterns amongExpand

Multiple and ancient origins of the domestic dog.
Mitochondrial DNA control region sequences were analyzed from 162 wolves at 27 localities worldwide and from 140 domestic dogs representing 67 breeds. Sequences from both dogs and wolves showedExpand

Molecular phylogeny and divergence time estimates for major rodent groups: evidence from multiple genes.
The order Rodentia contains half of all extant mammal species, and from an evolutionary standpoint, there are persistent controversies surrounding the monophyly of the order, divergence dates forExpand

Microsatellite markers in white-tailed deer.
A genomic library of DNA from white-tailed deer was constructed for the isolation of d(AC)n microsatellite repeats. PCR primers were designed from regions flanking each repeat and used to amplify DNAExpand

Systematics of Mustelid-Like Carnivores
The phylogenetic relationships of the skunks to the Mustelidae and other caniform carnivores were examined using mitochondrial-DNA (mtDNA) sequence data from portions of the 12S and 16S ribosomal RNAExpand

Multilocus phylogeny and rapid radiations in Neotropical cichlid fishes (Perciformes: Cichlidae: Cichlinae).
Neotropical cichlid fishes comprise approximately 60 genera and at least 600 species, but despite this diversity, their phylogeny is only partially understood, which limits taxonomic, ecological andExpand

Resolution of the African hominoid trichotomy by use of a mitochondrial gene sequence.
Mitochondrial DNA sequences encoding the cytochrome oxidase subunit II gene have been determined for five primate species, siamang (Hylobates syndactylus), lowland gorilla (Gorilla gorilla), pygmyExpand

Higher-level systematics of rodents and divergence time estimates based on two congruent nuclear genes.
Phylogenetic analysis of over 4600 aligned nucleotide sequences from two nuclear genes, growth hormone receptor and BRCA1, provided congruent phylogenies depicting relationships among the majorExpand

  • 15 November 1991
The superorder Archonta has been hypothesized to include primates, tree shrews, bats, and flying lemurs as descendants of a common ancestor. More recently, a diphyletic origin for bats has beenExpand
