Summary
"Canivoran Evolution focuses on current advances in our understanding of carnivoran phylogeny, ecomorphology and macroevolutionary patterns. This volume highlights a collection of cutting-edge methodologies currently used in studies of Carnivora which help to address fundamental issues in evolutionary biology and palaeontology. Chapters include studies addressing the issues of morphological and molecular derived phylogenies, community ecology, allometry, morphometrics (using both traditional methods) and Finite Element Analysis. Written for academic researchers, graduates and professionals Canivoran Evolution provides essential information and understanding on current advances in the areas of evolutionary biology, palaeobiology and organism biology"--
