  • Synopsis The relationships between the earliest members of the Carnivoramorpha and the crown‐clade Carnivora are more firmly resolved. The data set for the phylogenetic analyses includes 99 cranial and dental characters from 40 taxa, representing a wide range of early Cenozoic fossil carni‐voramorphan taxa traditionally included within the ‘Miacoidea’, representatives of extant Carnivora and outgroups. New fossils of Tapocyon and Oödectes, and more thorough anatomical analyses, significantly… CONTINUE READING
