Mammal teeth: origin, evolution, and diversity / by Peter S. Ungar
The John Hopkins University Press, c2010.

Ungar explains how teeth allow high-resolution tracking of 200 million years of mammalian radiation, thanks to the fortuitous combination of their fossilizability and their relationship to trophic biology. No mammalogist, paleontological or neontological, will want to be without this excellent work." Taken from back cover.
