... to other plesiadapiforms (plausible stem primates), Euprimates (crown primates), Scandentia (treeshrews), and Dermoptera (colugos) are unresolved. An exceptionally well-preserved cranium of Microsyops annectens includes a basicranium that is generally primitive relative to that of other extinct and extant...

... The cranium is a highly complex structure that has evolved myriad forms associated with many different ecologies throughout the tetrapod radiation. Despite this fact, tetrapod crania all exhibit a shared basic architecture—a braincase and associated sensory capsules and a facial skeleton associated...

... the component of muscle force acting to rotate the mandible relative to the cranium and the more torque that can be applied. The steeper insertion angle for the non-pterodactyloids indicates that a large component of the tensile force of the jaw adductors was acting on the mandible, and hence a more forceful...

... is to use G or P matrices from extant taxa as surrogates for the extinct ones. Although there are reasons to believe this approach is usually safe, it has not been fully explored. By thoroughly determining the extant and some extinct Xenarthra (Mammalia) cranium P matrices, this study aims to explore...
