By Francisco J. Goin, Michael O. Woodburne, Ana Natalia Zimicz, Gabriel M. Martin, Laura Chornogubsky

This e-book summarizes significant facets of the evolution of South American metatherians, together with their epistemologic, phylogenetic, biogeographic, faunal, tectonic, paleoclimatic, and metabolic contexts. a short evaluation of the evolution of every significant South American lineage ("Ameridelphia", Sparassodonta, Didelphimorphia, Paucituberculata, Microbiotheria, and Polydolopimorphia) is equipped. it really is argued that as a result of physiological constraints, metatherian evolution heavily the stipulations imposed via international temperatures. regularly phrases, through the Paleocene and the early Eocene a number of radiations of metatherian lineages happened, with many adaptive varieties exploiting insectivorous, frugivorous, and omnivorous adaptive zones. In flip, a mix of generalized and really expert varieties, the latter normally exploiting carnivorous and granivorous-folivorous adaptive zones, characterised the second one half the Cenozoic. In either classes, weather was once the serious motive force in their radiation and turnovers.

Les courtisanes de l’ancienne Rome

Les courtisanes de l'ancienne Rome ne formaient pas, comme celles de l'ancienne Grèce, une company aristocratique, qui avait, en quelque sorte, droit de cité dans les villes du Péloponnèse, de l'Hellade, de l'Epire et de l. a. Macédoine. Elles n'étaient pas, comme les grandes hétaïres grecques, admises à vivre ouvertement au milieu des hommes les plus éminents et les plus distingués de l. a. République ou de l'Empire; elles n'avaient pas le privilège, comme leurs collègues helléniques, de recevoir une espèce de culte admiratif et respectueux dans les cérémonies publiques.
