Patterns of mammalian jaw ecomorphological disparity during the Mesozoic/Cenozoic transition

Abstract:

The radiation of mammals after the Cretaceous/Palaeogene (K/Pg) boundary was a major event in the evolution of terrestrial ecosystems. Multiple studies point to increases in maximum body size and body size disparity, but patterns of disparity for other traits are less clear owing to a focus on different indices and subclades. We conducted an inclusive comparison of jaw functional disparity from the Early Jurassic–latest Eocene, using six mechanically relevant mandibular ratios for 256 species...
