Book Description

29 July 2010 Cambridge Studies in Morphology and Molecules: New Paradigms in Evolutionary Bio (Book 1)
Members of the mammalian clade Carnivora have invaded nearly every continent and ocean, evolving into bamboo-eating pandas, clam-eating walruses and of course, flesh-eating sabre-toothed cats. With this ecological, morphological and taxonomic diversity and a fossil record spanning over sixty million years, Carnivora has proven to be a model clade for addressing questions of broad evolutionary significance. This volume brings together top international scientists with contributions that focus on current advances in our understanding of carnivoran relationships, ecomorphology and macroevolutionary patterns. Topics range from the palaeoecology of the earliest fossil carnivorans to the influences of competition and constraint on diversity and biogeographic distributions. Several studies address ecomorphological convergences among carnivorans and other mammals with morphometric and Finite Element analyses, while others consider how new molecular and palaeontological data have changed our understanding of carnivoran phylogeny. Combined, these studies also illustrate the diverse suite of approaches and questions in evolutionary biology and palaeontology.

Product Description

Review

"The language and many of the chosen chapters are written for the scientist; specifically, the paleomammalogist that is interested in select details. For this audience and this audience alone, the volume is without question a worthwhile addition to the library."
Richard A. Kissel, American Paleontologist

Book Description

Presents current advances in our understanding of carnivoran evolution with a cohesive series of cutting-edge studies that utilise new methodologies and new data, while also demonstrating how the mammalian order Carnivora is being used as a model group for addressing fundamental topics in biology and palaeontology.
