Course Description: Some of the earliest-known mammals (the Mesozoic Era) include Eozostrodon, Deltatheridium, Jeholodens, Megazostrodon, Triconodon, and Zalambdalestes. Mammals are advanced synapsids, animals distinguished by having extra openings in the skull behind the eyes; this opening gave the synapsids stronger jaw muscles and jaws (the jaw muscles were anchored to the skull opening) than previous animals. Synapsids include the mammals, and their ancestors, the pelycosaurs, therapsids, and cynodonts. The course focuses on early mammals and their evolutionary changes. Assessment: final exam (100%).
