The Fossil Record and Evolution of Bovidae: State of the Field
The earliest records of the different bovid tribes are reviewed, along with their geographic locations, and the reinvestigation of osteological characters that might distinguish early bovids from stem taxa is investigated.

It is illustrated how phylogeographic and paleoenvironmental hypotheses inferred from a tree containing only extant taxa can be problematic without consideration of the fossil record, and the importance of considering morphological and ecological characteristics of clades when delimiting higher taxa.

The evolution of artiodactyls
The Evolution of Artiodactyls synthesizes research into a single, comprehensive volume and belongs in the library of every paleontologist, mammalogist, and evolutionary biologist.
DNA-led rediscovery of the giant sable antelope in Angola
Comparisons of mitochondrial DNA sequences derived from dung samples recently collected in the field and from old museum specimens of certain provenance provide the first documented evidence to date that this enigmatic antelope has survived.

A complete phylogeny of the whales, dolphins and even‐toed hoofed mammals (Cetartiodactyla)
The present species‐level tree of the Cetartiodactyla provides the first opportunity to examine comparative hypotheses across entirely aquatic and terrestrial species within a single mammalian order.
