      Here I describe a new tribosphenic mammal (a mammal with lower molar heels that are three-cusped and basined) from the Early Cretaceous of North America, based on an unusually complete specimen. The family Plethodontidae, commonly known as the lungless salamanders, is widely distributed in eastern and western North America, and Central America with populations occurring in South America. The family also has limited distribution in southern Europe and Korea. Plethodontidae is the largest of all the caudate families and contains more.

      The research documented in this book is rewriting our understanding of Late Cretaceous paleobiogeography and dinosaur phyletics. At the Top of the Grand Staircase: The Late Cretaceous of Southern Utah is a major stepping stone toward a total synthesis of the ecology and evolution of the Late Cretaceous ecosystems of western North America.

      their presumed close relatives are restricted to North America. This, together with the hypothesized relationships of South American/Australian marsupials (in the context of the North American Cretaceous radiation) and evidence from the fossil record of South America, in turn .   We describe a striking new species of the lungless salamander family Plethodontidae from the Appalachian foothills of northern Georgia, USA. This miniature species, c. 25–26 mm (adult standard length), is so distinctive genetically and morphologically that we erect a new genus, the first new genus of amphibian described from the US in nearly.

Most salamanders are nocturnal and can be found under rocks and fallen trees. Secretive, nocturnal, and little known, salamanders are often the most abundant vertebrates on the forest floor. This comprehensive volume, the first survey published sincedescribes the ecology, evolution, biodiversity, behavior, and natural history of recognized species of salamanders found in the United States and Canada, from newts and sirens to waterdogs and by:   The newly-discovered salamander species belongs to Sirenidae (sirens), a family of completely aquatic, eel-like salamanders with an unusual.

The newly-discovered salamander species belongs to Sirenidae (sirens), a family of completely aquatic, eel-like salamanders with an unusual morphology: large external gills and only front limbs. The ancestors of these amphibians likely branched off from all other salamanders early in the evolution of this group.
