They argue that this morphological feature provides artiodactyls with a thermoregulatory advantage in Cited by: 6.

    图书The Evolution of Artiodactyls 介绍、书评、论坛及推荐. Artiodactyls are diverse and successful hoofed mammals, represented by nearly two hundred living species of pigs, peccaries, hippos, camels, deer, sheep, cattle, giraffes, and other even-toed ungulates.   In the past few decades, many new discoveries have provided numerous transitional fossils that show the evolution of hoofed mammals from their primitive ancestors. We can now document the origin of the odd-toed perissodactyls, their early evolution when horses, brontotheres, rhinoceroses, and tapirs can barely be distinguished, and the subsequent Cited by: 3.

Reviewed by that cite the same problem nodes in the cladogram as they affect the need for research within different families of artiodactyls. The book is a series of contributed papers by a variety of specialists, mostly focused on individual families of artiodactyls, although there are also a few chapters.

The classification of artiodactyls was hotly debated because the ocean-dwelling cetaceans evolved from the land-dwelling even-toed ungulates.

Some semiaquatic even-toed ungulates (hippopotamuses) are more closely related to the ocean-dwelling cetaceans than to the other even-toed ungulates. This makes the Artiodactyla as traditionally defined a paraphyletic Class: Mammalia. HOPKINS: The Evolution of the Artiodactyls 2 dactyls.

The book is a series of contributed papers by a variety of specialists, mostly focused on indi-vidual families of artiodactyls, although there are also a few chapters lumping multiple families of morphologically similar and phylogenetically muddy species.

There are also 2 chapters on the File Size: KB. Artiodactyl evolution continued in the Oligocene, when the oldest pigs and peccaries appear in the fossil record. However, it was the Miocene, beginning about 15 million years ago, that saw the greatest radiation of artiodactyls.

This book is a fantastic resource for anyone interested in an overview of the Artiodactyls. My only complaint is the rather skimpy coverage of some groups like the Bovidae.

Many other groups get wonderfully comprehensive coverage and this easily makes up for the rest making this a fantastic book for those interested in the subject.5/5.

Artiodactyl - Artiodactyl - Evolution and paleontology: The artiodactyls can be traced back to a probable descent from a group of early generalized mammals called condylarths and were certainly distinct by the Eocene Epoch, which ended about million years ago. Fossil artiodactyls can be more or less convincingly classified in three suborders; the more primitive.

The Evolution of Artiodactyls: : Prothero, Donald R., Foss, Scott E.: Libri in altre lingue5/5(3). The evolution of cetaceans is thought to have begun in the Indian subcontinent, from even-toed ungulates 50 million years ago, over a period of at least 15 million years.

Cetaceans are fully aquatic marine mammals belonging to the order Artiodactyla, and branched off from other artiodactyls around 50 mya (million years ago). Cetaceans are thought to have evolved during. In the traditional account of evolution, perissodactyls and artiodactyls first appear in the Eocene.

Perhaps for this reason, paleontologists tend to place the fossils of earlier hoofed animals into other "extinct" orders to indicate they are somehow basically different from, and not ancestral to, taxa included in the two extant ungulate orders.Evolution and mechanics of unguligrady in artiodactyls.
