  • Geography
The living Asian linsang, Prionodon pardicolor, shares marked anatomical similarities in basicranium and dentition with the extinct Oligocene aeluroid, Palaeoprionodon lamandini, from the Quercy fissures, France. The living African linsang, Poiana richardsoni, is similar yet slightly more derived in basicranial traits relative to Prionodon pardicolor, and also has basicranial and dental features indicating a relationship to the living genets (Genetta). The basicranial and auditory anatomy of a… 


Viverrid neuroanatomy: Phylogenetic and behavioral implications.
External neuroanatomy of 31 genera of living viverrids is surveyed through the use of endocranial casts, and study of viverrid brains may provide insights into why the neocortex evolved as it did in other groups of carnivorans.
A Phylogenetic Analysis and Definition of the Carnivora
Comparative cytogenetic studies in tree shrews (Tupaia).
Through use of BrdU replication, RBA-banded karyotypes of Tupaia belangeri, T. chinensis, and T. glis were obtained and all chromosomes between these two phenotypically different species appear to have identical RBA banding patterns.
