Carpal anatomy in adults of 13 outgroup species and 50 diprotodontian species from all families except Tarsipedidae was examined, as well as a histological sectional series of a pouch young Vombatus ursinus. The results are discussed in the light of recent phylogenies, and functional aspects were considered to gain an understanding of carpal evolution in this diverse marsupial clade. Mapping of eight carpal characters on alternative diprotodontian phylogenies results in trees of similar lengths… Expand
