Interesting article here from Matt Walker, Editor of BBC Earth News on a revised phylogeny of the carnivores. The research suggests two main branches among the Carnivora – doglike and catlike – but also a number of species that are really tough to classify, e.g., the Red Panda of Asia. The article also describes the importance of specific forms that are genetically distinct, like the walrus, that should be especially high priorities for conservation.
