Impacts of the Cretaceous Terrestrial Revolution and KPg extinction on mammal diversification.

Abstract

Previous analyses of relations, divergence times, and diversification patterns among extant mammalian families have relied on supertree methods and local molecular clocks. We constructed a molecular supermatrix for mammalian families and analyzed these data with likelihood-based methods and relaxed molecular clocks. Phylogenetic analyses resulted in a… (More)
