L'otude de la morphologic dentaire des Viverridos africains actuels fait ressortir une nette tendance ovolutive de la denture : initialement coupante, celle-ci tend ä se transformer en un appareil apte ä ^eraser, broyer et triturer ; cette e"tude oclaire en outre les relations phyl£tiques mutuelles des dififerents genres. Involution morphologique et fonctionnelle de la denture semble avoir joue" un role essential dans le c buissonnement », sans doute relativement recent, des Viverridös… Expand

Figures from this paper

RAPPORTS PHYLÉTIQUES DES VIVERRIDÉS (CARNIVORES FISSIPÈDES). LES FORMES DE MADAGASCAR
TLDR
Les Carnivores Fissipedes endemiques de Madagascar sont des Viverrid6s, issue du stock ancestral pale*arctique d'une forme archaique immigree. Expand
Tooth microwear and diet in the African Viverridae
TLDR
Microgrooves and scratches seemed to occur primarily in species that eat vertebrate food items while pitting appeared to occur mainly in those that eat invertebrate prey. Expand
An investigation of morpho-anatomical characters within the genus Genetta (Carnivora, Viverridae) with a remark on Osbornictis, the aquatic genet
TLDR
The Viverrinae subfamily remains a controversial taxonomic group and phylogenetic relationships within this group, although poorly considered, are liable to discussions and opposite scenarii hâve been proposed. Expand
Herpestes (Viverridae, Carnivora) from the Miocene of Pakistan
TLDR
These fossil remains of small carnivores from Pakistan are the first fossil record for Herpestes in Asia and may be the earliest record of the genus. Expand
Giant bunodont Lutrinae from the Mio-Pliocene of Kenya and Uganda
Three new species of bunodont otters are described from the Mio-Pliocene of East Africa. They are provisionally attributed to the genus Sivaonyx Pilgrim, 1931. The species described are SivaonyxExpand
A study of allozyme evolution in African mongooses (Viverridae : Herpestinae)
TLDR
Owing to unequal rates of change in different lineages, phenetic and cladistic analyses of the allozyme data produced discordant trees, and the cladistic approach is to be preferred for analysing phylogenetic relationships among the mongooses. Expand
Molecular systematics and origin of sociality in mongooses (Herpestidae, Carnivora).
TLDR
The results suggested unexpected phylogenetic relationships: the genus Cynictis is included in the solitary mongoose clade, and the genus Herpestes is polyphyletic, showing the potential benefit of using such characters in phylogeny. Expand
A mongoose remain (Mammalia: Carnivora) from the Upper Irrawaddy sediments, Myanmar and its significance in evolutionary history of Asian herpestids
TLDR
The present specimen is the first carnivoran from the Upper Irrawaddy sediments and confirms that mongooses had already dispersed into Southeast Asia by the late Pliocene, being consistent with the previous molecular phylogenetic analyses. Expand
The earliest modern mongoose (Carnivora, Herpestidae) from Africa (late Miocene of Chad)
TLDR
The Chadian finding therefore represents the earliest appearance of an extant species of Herpestidae and ties the first appearance of the genus to a minimum age of ca. Expand
Genets and ‘genet‐like’ taxa (Carnivora, Viverrinae): phylogenetic analysis, systematics and biogeographic implications
TLDR
A rain forest origin of the genus Genetta supports an ecological transition from the rain forest genets to the savanna genets, a conclusion which may be generalized to the entire study group. Expand
