Multiple Loci and Complete Taxonomic Sampling Resolve the Phylogeny and Biogeographic History of Tenrecs (Mammalia: Tenrecidae) and Reveal Higher Speciation Rates in Madagascar's Humid Forests.
The results resolve the relationships among previously recalcitrant taxa, illuminate the timing and mechanisms of major biogeographic patterns in an extraordinary example of an island radiation, and permit the first comprehensive, phylogenetically consistent taxonomy of Madagascar's tenrecs. Expand
Deer from Late Miocene to Pleistocene of Western Palearctic: matching fossil record and molecular phylogeny data
This article proposes a brief overview of opinions on cervid systematics and phylogeny, as well as some unresolved taxonomical issues, morphology and systematics of the most important or little knownExpand
Los bóvidos Villafranquienses de La Puebla de Valverde y Villarroya: sistemática, filogenia y paleobiología
RESUMEN A pesar de la gran abundancia de los bovidos villafranquienses espanoles, no existe ningun estudio monografico hasta la fecha que aborde el estudio de los bovidos pliocenos de Espana, hechoExpand
Los suoideos de talla pequeña del Mioceno de Europa y Asia
This paper ends with a proposal for a revised taxonomy of the Palaeochoeridae, a family that has recently taken on importance in the debate about the origins of Hippopotamidae. Expand
A supermatrix analysis of genomic, morphological, and paleontological data from crown Cetacea
The parsimony analysis of the supermatrix and the analysis of morphology constrained to fit the ML/Bayesian molecular tree yielded broadly congruent phylogenetic hypotheses, implying that many character states shared by river dolphins evolved in their oceanic ancestors, contradicting the hypothesis that these characters are convergent adaptations to fluvial habitats.

Multigene phylogeny of the Mustelidae: Resolving relationships, tempo and biogeographic history of a mammalian adaptive radiation
Using Bayesian dating techniques, phylogenetic and dating analyses suggest that mustelid diversification may have been spurred by a combination of faunal turnover events and diversification at lower trophic levels, ultimately caused by climatically driven environmental changes. Expand

Molecular Evolution of the vq-Globin Gene Locus : Gibbon Phylogeny and the Hominoid Slowdown ’
An 8.4-kb genomic region spanning both the Wq-globin gene locus and flanking DNA was sequenced from the common gibbon (Hylobutes lur). In addition, sequencing of the entire orthologous region fromExpand
Phylogenetic relationships of artiodactyls and cetaceans as deduced from the comparison of cytochrome b and 12S rRNA mitochondrial sequences.
The combined analysis of the two genes suggests a monophyletic Cetacea +Artiodactyla clade, whereas PerissodactylA, Carnivora, and Tethytheria fall outside this clade. Expand
