Mammal Phylogeny: Mesozoic Differentiation, Multituberculates, Monotremes, Early Therians, and Marsupials

Overview

The problem of the origin, differentiation, and relationships of living mammals has long been of great interest. Although some individuals have attempted to address the entire question, no one has been able to provide a complete synthesis. In recognition of this need, a based consortium was organized to provide a multifaceted, multidisciplinary attack on the problems of mammal phylogeny. Mammal Phylogeny brings together sixty distinguished researchers representing the fields of vertebrate paleontology, ...

Overview

The problem of the origin, differentiation, and relationships of living mammals has long been of great interest. Although some individuals have attempted to address the entire question, no one has been able to provide a complete synthesis. In recognition of this need, a based consortium was organized to provide a multifaceted, multidisciplinary attack on the problems of mammal phylogeny. Mammal Phylogeny brings together sixty distinguished researchers representing the fields of vertebrate paleontology, anthropology, mammal morphology, embryology, and molecular biology, resulting in 35 state-of-the-art papers addressing the current questions of this important field.

Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Based on the Mammal Conference, held at the American Museum of Natural History, New York City, May-June 1990, this volume is a review of new research in the evolutionary morphology of hard and soft tissues, molecular phylogeny, and in virtually all currently active aspects of analysis which have as their focus the evolutionary history of the placental mammals. Leading international researchers review all the major ordinal groups of placentals either from sundry molecular perspectives or the morphological examination of fossil and living groups. For evolutionary biologists of a variety of subfields. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
