CARNAGES: Critical analysis of the CARNivoran mammal success during the early AGES

Why are we surrounded by only one group of placental carnivorous mammals (Carnivora: the present-day lions, dogs, bears, and seals among others) today, while at least three other groups of placental mammals (Hyaenodonta, Mesonychia, Oxyaenidae) were in competition with carnivorans 50 million years ago?

Endemic Evolution and Faunal Turnover of the European Paleocene Mammals

The project focuses on the early radiation of European mammals at the beginning of the Cenozoic era, and their evolution until the Paleocene-Eocene boundary. Study of mammals from new localities allows discerning adaptive radiation, endemic evolution and dispersal of mammals just after the dinosaur’s extinction.
