Lagomorphs are a mammalian order together with rabbits, hares and pikas. they're dispensed during the global and are of either medical and public curiosity as they're labeled among endangered and pest species. furthermore, a few have a excessive fiscal worth as very important online game species. within the previous couple of a long time, an important quantity of data used to be made to be had to the medical group and ended in impressive advances on all features of Lagomorph biology. in spite of the fact that, this data is dispersed in a number of medical and non-scientific journals. This booklet presents an up-to-date synthesis of the present wisdom on Lagomorph biology.

However, the phylogenetic relationships of mixodonts are not stable. Mimotonids cluster either with Lagomorpha (clade Duplicidentata) or with other mixodonts; eurymylids group either with Rodentia (clade Rodentiamorpha) or with Duplicidentata (Averianov 1994; Meng et al. 2003; Asher et al. 2005). The order Rodentia appeared highly differentiated in North America and Asia in late Paleocene, more than 10 million years before the first well-characterized lagomorph. Some authors interpret the basal lagomorph evolution as a smooth transitional gradation between mixodonts and primitive lagomorphs.
