  • Molecular phylogenetic studies of the extant Pantherinae have resulted in a variety of different hypotheses of relationships. This study presents the results of a cladistic study encompassing 45 osteological and dental characters in the skull and mandible, as well as 13 soft‐tissue and behavioural characters. Analyzing extant pantherines with osteological data only resulted in two equally parsimonious trees, which differed only with respects to the jaguar, a taxon which shows morphological… CONTINUE READING
