THE MAMMALS OF PARACOU, FRENCH GUIANA: A NEOTROPICAL LOWLAND RAINFOREST FAUNA PART 2. NONVOLANT SPECIES
TLDR
Systematic research with nonvolant mammal specimens collected as voucher material resulted in the discovery of new taxa, documented range extensions of previously described species, and helped resolve many longstanding taxonomic problems.

Ten New Genera of Oryzomyine Rodents (Cricetidae: Sigmodontinae)
TLDR
10 new genera are described for species or species groups previously referred to the polyphyletic genus Oryzomys, and the tribe OryZomyini now comprises 28 genera, which are morphologically diagnosable and have distinct ecogeographic distributions.
Phylogenetic Relationships and Classification of Didelphid Marsupials, an Extant Radiation of New World Metatherian Mammals
TLDR
A decade of morphological and molecular research on the phylogenetic relationships of didelphid marsupials (opossums) is summarized, with a completely resolved ingroup phylogeny with high support statistics at most nodes.
On the Contents of Gracilinanus Gardner and Creighton, 1989, with the Description of a Previously Unrecognized Clade of Small Didelphid Marsupials
TLDR
Separate and combined phylogenetic analyses of nonmolecular data and nuclear gene sequences suggest that Cryptonanus and Gracilinanus are reciprocally monophyletic and closely related, although they were not consistently recovered as sister taxa in any analysis.
PHYLOGENETIC STUDIES ON DIDELPHID MARSUPIALS II. NONMOLECULAR DATA AND NEW IRBP SEQUENCES: SEPARATE AND COMBINED ANALYSES OF DIDELPHINE RELATIONSHIPS WITH DENSER TAXON SAMPLING
TLDR
A combined (simultaneous) maximum-parsimony analysis of both datasets (nonmolecular + IRBP) produced a consensus topology that closely resembled the results of analyzing IRBP separately, and a new genus is described for “Marmosa” canescens.
An introduction to the neotropical muroid rodent genus Zygodontomys. Bulletin of the AMNH ; no. 210
  • R. Voss

  • 1991
TLDR
This book discusses the distribution, habits, and habits of Sylvilagusfloridanus, as well as some of the mechanisms behind its establishment, and some of its mechanisms are described in detail.
THE EARLY DIVERSIFICATION HISTORY OF DIDELPHID MARSUPIALS: A WINDOW INTO SOUTH AMERICA'S “SPLENDID ISOLATION”
TLDR
This study provides the first published molecular‐phylogenetic evidence for mass extinction in any animal clade, and it is the first time that evidence for such an event (in any plant or animal taxon) has been tested for statistical significance.
