Thewissen, Johannes G. M.: SEE ALSO Savage et al., 1994. (detail)
Thewissen, Johannes G. M. (detail)
Cephalic evidence for the affinities of Tubulidentata.
Mammalia 49(2): 257-284. 1 tab. 5 figs.
–Considers the evidence weak for ungulate relationships of tubulidentates; compares their brain and skull morphology and cranial foramina with, among others, Eocene sirs. (265, 268-269, 271-274, 279).
Thewissen, Johannes G. M.; Domning, Daryl Paul (detail)
The role of phenacodontids in the origin of the modern orders of ungulate mammals.
Jour. Vert. Pal. 12(4): 494-504. 2 tabs. 2 figs. Dec. 15, 1992.
–Concludes that the mirorder Pantomesaxonia (including Sirenia, Desmostylia, Proboscidea, Hyracoidea, and Perissodactyla) and the order Phenacodonta are sister groups together making up the superorder Paenungulata, but the relationships within the Pantomesaxonia remain unresolved.
Thewissen, Johannes G. M. (detail)
Eocene marine mammals from the Himalayan foothills.
Research & Exploration (National Geographic Society) 9(1): 125-127. Figs. 9-12. Winter 1993.
–Reports a sir. rib and skull fragments of a supposed sir. from the Early to Middle Eocene Kuldana Formation of Pakistan. The skull was later determined not to be sirenian.
Savage, Robert Joseph Gay; Domning, Daryl Paul; Thewissen, Johannes G. M. (detail)

–Graphs the relationship of semicircular canal curvature to body mass in Dugong dugon and other mammals; it lies within the range for terrestrial species.

Thewissen, Johannes G. M.; Bajpai, Sunil (detail)
A new Miocene sirenian from Kutch, India.
