Re: Gondwana Split Sorts Out Mammalian Evolution

Horrible, horrible name. Why not just redefine Archonta?
Or, failing that, I suggest the following:
Scansores ("climbers"; could be confusing because of the general terms
"scansor" and "scansorial")
Arboricolae ("inhabitants of trees"--not very applicable to modern
lagomorphs, but it works for primates, flying lemurs, tree shrews, and many
Yuck. Why not just Boreotheria ("northern beasts")?
