Mammals are the dominant large animals of today, occurring in virtually every environment. This book is an account of the remarkable fossil records that document their origin since the extinction of the dinosaurs. Tracing their evolution over the last 35 million by: Introduction.

Mammal Phylogeny This work is a review of new researches in the evolutionary morphology of hard and soft tissues, molecular phylogeny, and all aspects of currently active research, on the evolutionary history of the mammals. This two-volume set addresses the problems of mammal phylogeny, bringing together researchers from the fields of vertebrate palaeontology, anthropology, mammal morphology, embryology and .

Our primary goal is to provide a summary phylogeny that will serve as a tool for comparative research.
Journals & Books; Help Here, we will use this method to construct the first ever species-level phylogeny for mammals that includes not only all extant species but also all known extinct Holocene and Late Pleistocene species and includes not only a single most likely tree Cited by: In , the mammals were comprehensively revised by Malcolm C. McKenna and Susan K. Bell, which has resulted in the McKenna/Bell classification. Their book, Classification of Mammals above the Species Level, is a comprehensive work on the systematics, relationships and occurrences of all mammal taxa, living and extinct, down through the rank of genus, though molecular genetic data Clade: Amniota. Mammal - Mammal - Evolution and classification: Mammals were derived in the Triassic Period (about million to million years ago) from members of the reptilian order Therapsida. The therapsids, members of the subclass Synapsida (sometimes called the mammal-like reptiles), generally were unimpressive in relation to other reptiles of their time.
