About this book

This book presents a comprehensive analysis of the evidence for the Mesozoic origin and differentiation of mammals. Leading researchers examine evidence ranging from development and genetic control to cranial ontogeny, basicranial morphology, dental homologies, and postcranial morphology. Emphasis is placed on understanding the evolution of morphological characteristics, on the fossil record, and on the construction of phylogenies based on the analysis of characters and on mammalian distribution.
