Developing a radiometrically-dated chronologic sequence for Neogene biotic change in Australia, from the Riversleigh World Heritage Area of Queensland
Australia's Oldest Marsupial Fossils and their Biogeographical Implications
Djarthia is the oldest known crown-group marsupial anywhere in the world that is represented by dental, cranial and post-cranial remains, and is also the most plesiomorphic known australidelphian, and phylogenetic analyses place it outside all other Australian marsupials.

Fossil Mammals of Riversleigh, Northwestern Queensland: Preliminary Overview of Biostratigraphy, Correlation and Environmental Change
Aspects of the results of studies of the fossil-rich Cainozoic deposits of Riversleigh, northwestern Queensland, are reviewed. A summary of five selected Riversleigh faunas representing the primary…

The first monotreme from outside the Australian continent, an ornithorhyn-chid, is reported from sediments of late early Palaeocene age in Patagonia, southern Argentina, demonstrating the Gondwanan nature of monotremes and supporting the hypothesis that the Patagonian Terrane of southern South America had a biotic history distinct from that of the rest of the continent.

Its presence in NZ in the Middle Miocene and apparent absence from Australia and other adjacent landmasses at this time appear to reflect a Gondwanan vicariant event and imply persistence of emergent land during the Oligocene marine transgression of NZ.
Multivariate analyses of Cenozoic mammalian faunas from Riversleigh, northwestern Queensland
Mammalian faunal lists of Riversleigh fossil sites were compared using several techniques to assess the age relationships between 75 Riversleigh sites and the central Australian Ngama, Kutjamarpu and…
Riversleigh, the story of animals in ancient rainforests of inland Australia
The Rise of Australian Marsupials: A Synopsis of Biostratigraphic, Phylogenetic, Palaeoecologic and Palaeobiogeographic Understanding
The origins, evolution and palaeodiversity of Australia’s unique marsupial fauna are reviewed. Australia’s marsupial fauna is both taxonomically and ecologically diverse comprising four extant orders…
Current status of species-level representation in faunas from selected fossil localities in the Riversleigh World Heritage Area, northwestern Queensland
Current lists of species-level representation in faunas from 80 Cenozoic fossil localities at the Riversleigh World Heritage Area have been compiled by review of recorded occurrences of taxa obtained…
