Abstract

A previous review by Dawson (1977) summarized the late Eocene rodent faunas of Asia, Europe and North America. Numerous new data provide information about the origin of rodents, and their evolution and radiation within the different continents. Many of these new findings will be discussed elsewhere in this volume.
