A molecular and morphological study of several living aeluroid Carnivora was completed to evaluate the evolutionary relationships of the endemicCryptoprocta ferox, a carnivore living on the island of Madagascar. The molecular analysis, based on DNA/DNA hybridization experiments, suggests thatCryptoprocta is more closely related to the Herpestidae (as represented byMungos andIchneumia) than it is to the Viverrinae (Genetta), Paradoxurinae (Paguma, Paradoxurus), Felidae (Felis, Panthera), or… Expand

Primates and Other Prey in the Seasonally Variable Diet of Cryptoprocta ferox in the Dry Deciduous Forest of Western Madagascar
TLDR
Molecular studies indicate that Cryptoprocta is part of a radiation of Carnivora endemic to Madagascar, which unites all of the native species on the island into a single clade, now recognized as the endemic family Eupleridae. Expand
Phylogenetic analyses of complete cytochromeb genes of the order Carnivora with particular emphasis on the Caniformia
TLDR
The analysis shows that the skunks are only distantly related to remaining mustelids (Mustelidae sensu stricto) and that the family Mustelidae, including the skunk, is paraphyletic, suggesting an evolutionary separation within a relatively short period of time. Expand
DNA–DNA Hybridization Evidence for the Recent Origin of Marmots and Ground Squirrels (Rodentia: Sciuridae)
TLDR
The branching pattern obtained from a neighbor-joining analysis and least-squares methods indicates that spermophiles and marmots are closely related, in agreement with previous studies based on biochemical data which have suggested a Miospermophilus origin of Marmota (like Spermophile), instead of the Protospermophile origin usually proposed by paleontology. 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
Exhaustive sample set among Viverridae reveals the sister-group of felids: the linsangs as a case of extreme morphological convergence within Feliformia

TLDR
The morphotype reappearance from the Asiatic to the African linsangs suggests that the genome of the Feliformia conserved its potential ability of expression for a peculiar adaptive phenotype throughout evolution, in this case arboreality and hypercarnivory in tropical forest. Expand
New insights into the systematics of Malagasy mongoose‐like carnivorans (Carnivora, Eupleridae, Galidiinae) based on mitochondrial and nuclear DNA sequences
TLDR
Low levels of intraspecific divergence revealed some geographical structure for the Galidiinae taxa, suggesting that environmental barriers have isolated certain populations in recent geological time. Expand
Evolution and systematics of the feliform Carnivora
TLDR
Detailed study on new fossil remains of extinct feliform nimravides allows a new hypothesis concerning interrelationships within this family to be proposed, which indicates lack of sister relationships of Nimravinae and Barbourofelinae. Expand
Phylogenetic relationships of the Asian palm civets (Hemigalinae & Paradoxurinae, Viverridae, Carnivora).
TLDR
The Viverridae (Mammalia, Carnivora), one of the least studied groups of carnivorans, include two subfamilies of Asian palm civets, and the differentiation of the (Hemigalinae+Paradoxurinae) was inferred to occur in the Late Oligocene/Early Miocene. Expand
Mosaics of convergences and noise in morphological phylogenies: what's in a viverrid-like carnivoran?
TLDR
These results support the removal from the traditionally held Viverridae of several viverrid-like taxa into three distinct families: Nandiniidae, Prionodontidae (Prionodon), and the newly defined Eupleridae (including Cryptoprocta, Fossa, Eupleres plus all "mongoose-like" Malagasy taxa). Expand
Systematic relationships of the bushy‐tailed and black‐footed mongooses (genus Bdeogale, Herpestidae, Carnivora) based on molecular, chromosomal and morphological evidence
TLDR
The relationships within the mongooses (Herpestidae) have been recently reconsidered and two clades are shown, corresponding to the traditional Herpestinae and Mungotinae, but with Cynictis included in the former rather than the latter. Expand

DNA hybridization, cladistics, and the phylogeny of phalangerid marsupials
TLDR
DNA hybridization results are not inconsistent with the distribution of derived character states among anatomical characters, only with minimum-length trees based on character data. Expand
Molecular evidence that the spiny mouse (Acomys) is more closely related to gerbils (Gerbillinae) than to true mice (Murinae).
TLDR
DNA hybridization data indicate that the spiny mouse Acomys and two African genera of Murinae, Uranomys and Lophuromys, constitute a monophyletic clade, a view that was recently suggested on the basis of dental characters. Expand
Molecular and Biochemical Evolution of the Carnivora
TLDR
The fissiped carnivores includes taxa that are entirely carnivorous, insectivorous, and omnivorous and that have cursorial, arboreal, fossorial, and aquatic habits that have confounded the efforts of taxonomists to relate certain taxa. Expand
DNA hybridization as a guide to phylogeny: Relations of the Hominoidea
TLDR
The Sibley-Ahlquist study does not provide documentation or controls adequate to establish a secure linkage between Pan and Homo to the exclusion of Gorilla, and is concluded that humans and chimpanzees are more closely related than chimpanzees and gorillas. Expand
Evolution of DNA sequences has been retarded in Malagasy primates
TLDR
It is reported here that the evolution of DNA of primates from Madagascar is significantly less than that of all other groups of living primates, not expected in the simplest form of the theory of neutral selection. Expand

TLDR
DNA-DNA hybrids were formed among 2 outgroups and 12 taxa of titmice and chickadees to estimate the genealogical relationships of the main Parus lineages and provide historical insight into patterns of tit behavior. Expand
The Phylogeny of the Recent Carnivora
TLDR
The grouping of mammals that were carnivorous was further refined by Geoffroy Saint-Hilaire and Cuvier (1795), Cuvier(1800, 1817), Gray (1821), and Temminck (1835–41). Expand

TLDR
It appears that Mode, Tm and T50H do yield similar conclusions as far as the evolutionary tree of the muroid rodents is concerned, and the Normalized Percent of Hybridization appears to be strongly affected by experimental conditions, and should be used with caution. Expand
