About this book

This book focuses on current advances in our understanding of carnivoran phylogeny, ecomorphology and macroevolutionary patterns. It highlights a collection of cutting-edge methodologies currently used in studies of Carnivora which help to address fundamental issues in evolutionary biology and palaeontology.

Flynn, John A. Finarelli and Michelle Spaulding; 3. Phylogeny of the viverridae and 'viverrid-like' feliforms Geraldine Veron; 4. Molecular and morphological evidence for ailuridae and a review of its genera Michael Morlo and Stephane Peigne; 5. The influence of character correlations on phylogenetic analyses: a case study of the carnivoran cranium Anjali Goswami and P. David Polly; 6.

Biography

Anjali Goswami is a lecturer in palaeobiology in the Department of Genetics, Evolution and Environment and the Department of Earth Sciences at University College London. Anthony Friscia's research covers small carnivores, both extant and extinct. He is particularly interested in questions about ecomorphology and community structure.
