    J Hum Evol 50:1-35. 2006
    ..Cladistic analysis of cranial data fails to support a close relationship of Carpolestidae to either tarsiiform euprimates or extant Dermoptera, but suggests a close relationship between Carpolestidae, Plesiadapidae, and Euprimates...

    Jonathan I Bloch
    Florida Museum of Natural History, University of Florida, P O Box 117800, Gainesville, FL 32611, USA
    Proc Natl Acad Sci U S A 104:1159-64. 2007
    ..Our results are consistent with those from recent molecular analyses that group Dermoptera with Scandentia. We find no evidence to support the hypothesis that any plesiadapiforms were mitten-gliders or closely related to Dermoptera...
  3. ncbi request reprint Grasping primate origins
    Jonathan I Bloch
    Museum of Paleontology, University of Michigan, 1109 Geddes Road, Ann Arbor, MI 48109 1079, USA
    Science 298:1606-10. 2002
    ..We infer that the ancestor of Euprimates was primitively an arboreal grasper adapted for terminal branch feeding rather than a specialized leaper or visually directed predator...

    E Christopher Kirk
    Department of Anthropology, University of Texas at Austin, Austin, TX 78712, USA
    J Hum Evol 55:278-99. 2008
    ..These results provide additional evidence that plesiadapiforms were arboreal and support the hypothesis that Euarchonta originated in an arboreal milieu...

    ..Hence, Arctostylopidae may best be grouped with Asian non-gliroid Gliriformes, which we interpret as having dispersed into North America in the Late Palaeocene...
