An Ontogenetic Assessment of Dental Homologies in Therian Mammals
Ontogenetic analysis of the dentition in a wide range of marsupials and eutherians provides valuable criteria for assessing tooth homologies among extant therian mammals. In addition, theseExpand

Superordinal and Intraordinal Affinities of Rodents: Developmental Evidence from the Dentition and Placentation
The origin and subsequent evolutionary radiation of the order Rodentia were based primarily on the development of a pair of enlarged, evergrowing incisors in both jaws, and concomitantExpand

Killed but metabolically active microbes: a new vaccine paradigm for eliciting effector T-cell responses and protective immunity
We developed a new class of vaccines, based on killed but metabolically active (KBMA) bacteria, that simultaneously takes advantage of the potency of live vaccines and the safety of killed vaccines.Expand

The Suggested Evolutionary Relationships and Classification of Tree Shrews
The tree shrews (family Tupaiidae) of Southeast Asia are small, scansorial, squirrel-like mammals which occupy a range of arboreal, semi-arboreal, and forest floor niches. They areExpand

Fossil evidence for the origin of the marsupial pattern of tooth replacement
EXTANT marsupials are distinctive in their pattern of dental development1, in that only one tooth is replaced postnatally in each jaw. Interpretation of this pattern for marsupials ancestrally isExpand
