Ecology and Evolution of South American Marsupials

© José Luis Bartheld, FlikrRevista Chilena de Historia Natural is now accepting submissions for this thematic series.  

This thematic series will cover the three taxonomic orders of one of the major lineages of mammals: Didelphimorphia, Paucituberculata and Microbiotheria. There will be a special emphasis on Microbiotheria, a monotypical order with a single species that inhabits the southern Temperate Forests of Chile and Argentina, and that are more phylogenetically related to Australian than to American marsupials.
