Figure 1

An evolutionary tree of mammals. The tree depicts historic divergence relationships among the living orders of mammals. The phylogenetic hierarchy is a consensus view of several decades of molecular genetic, morphological and fossil inference (see for example [98, 99]. Double rings indicate mammalian supertaxa, numbers indicate the possible time of divergences.
