    ..Thus, although morphogenera can be imperfect reflections of phylogeny, large-scale statistical treatments of diversity dynamics or macroevolutionary variables in time and space are unlikely to be misleading...

    Department of Geological Sciences, University of Michigan, Ann Arbor, MI 48109, USA
    Proc Natl Acad Sci U S A 106:9345-9. 2009
    ..Incorporation of fossil data further reveals that no association exists between sociality and encephalization across Carnivora and that support for sociality as a causal agent of encephalization increase disappears for this clade...

    John A Finarelli
    Department of Geological Sciences, University of Michigan, 2534 C C Little Building, 1100 North University Avenue, Ann Arbor, MI 48109, USA
