New Paleo Articles in PLoS ONE

As we close down the year, PLoS ONE keeps on turning out the paleontology articles. There's some important stuff here, both for mammal workers as well as those interested in anthropogenic change.

Horovitz I, Martin T, Bloch J, Ladevèze S, Kurz C, et al. (2009) Cranial anatomy of the earliest marsupials and the origin of opossums. PLoS ONE 4(12): e8278. doi:10.1371/journal.pone.0008278

Carrasco MA, Barnosky AD, Graham RW (2009) Quantifying the Extent of North American Mammal Extinction Relative to the Pre-Anthropogenic Baseline. PLoS ONE 4(12): e8331. doi:10.1371/journal.pone.0008331
