We present a fully resolved phylogeny for ursids based on ten complete mitochondrial genome sequences from all eight living and two recently extinct bear species, the European cave bear (Ursus spelaeus) and the American giant short-faced bear (Arctodus simus).The mitogenomic data yield a well-resolved topology for ursids, with the sloth bear at the basal position.

The American mastodon (Mammut americanum) is one of the many species of extinct mammutid proboscideans in the genus Mammut, distantly related to elephants, that inhabited North and Central America during the late Miocene or late Pliocene up to their extinction at the end of the Pleistoc to 11, years ons lived in herds and were predominantly forest dwelling animals.
