Placental mammal diversification and the Cretaceous-Tertiary boundary

Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences of the United States of America

Jan 29, 2003

Mark S SpringerS J O'Brien

Abstract

Competing hypotheses for the timing of the placental mammal radiation focus on whether extant placental orders originated and diversified before or after the Cretaceous-Tertiary (KT) boundary. Molecular studies that have addressed this issue suffer from single calibration points, unwarr...read more
