  • Abstract Considerable long-standing controversy and confusion surround the phylogenetic affinities of pinnipeds, the largely marine group of “fin-footed” members of the placental mammalian order Carnivora. Until most recently, the two major competing hypotheses were that the pinnipeds have a single (monophyletic) origin from a bear-like ancestor, or that they have a dual (diphyletic) origin, with sea lions (Otariidae) derived from a bear-like ancestor, and seals (Phocidae) derived from an otter… CONTINUE READING
