Their Fossil Relatives and Evolutionary HistoryeBook - 2010
Xiaoming Wang and Richard H. Tedford combine their research with Mauricio Antâon's impeccable reconstructions to present a remarkable portrait of canids over the past 40 million years. Wang and Tedford cull their history from the most recent scientific research conducted on the vast collections of the American Museum of Natural History and other leading institutions. With their rich fossil record, diverse adaptations to various environments, and different predatory specializations, canids are an ideal model organism for the mapping of predator behavior and morphological specializations.
