dc.description.abstract "The principal points brought out in the foregoing paper may be briefly summarized as follows: (1) The tracing of the Daphaenus ancestry back into the Wasatch Eocene by way of Prodaphaenus and Uintacyon, which latter has always been considered a creodont. (2) The establishment of the relationship of Daphaenus to Temnocyon, and that of Temnocyon to the living genus Cyon. (3) Tracing the ancestry of the Canis-Cynodictis line back into the Eocene through Procynodictis and Vulpavus. (4) Some additional points in the structure of Cynodictis. (5) The descent of certain South American foxes from North American Miocene species, with the establishment of a new genus, Nothocyon, for their reception. (6) Classification of the Miocene genera of the Canidae. (7) The discovery of the origin of the Procyonidae from the Canidae through the new genus Phlaocyon. (8) The discovery of the genus Viverravus and the establishment of a new family"--P. 138. en_US

This item appears in the following Collection(s)

  • Bulletin of the American Museum of Natural History
    The Bulletin, published continuously since 1881, consists of longer monographic volumes in the field of natural sciences relating to zoology, paleontology, and geology. Current numbers are published at irregular intervals. The Bulletin was originally a place to publish short papers, while longer works appeared in the Memoirs. However, in the 1920s, the Memoirs ceased and the Bulletin series began publishing longer papers. A new series, the Novitates , published short papers describing new forms.
