 MARSUPIALIA - LoveToKnow Article on MARSUPIALIA
There is much to be urged in favor of either view; and in adopting the former alternative, it must be borne in mind that the difference between monotremes and marsupials is vastly greater than that which separates the latter from placentals.
Marsupials may be defined as viviparous (that is non-egglaying) mammals, in which the young are born in an imperfect condition, and almost immediately attached to the teats of the mammary glands; the latter being generally enclosed in a pouch, and the front edge of the pelvis being always furnished with epipubic or marsupial bones.

 The evolution, distribution, and even death of the marsupials have involved the concept of change   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-22)
            The fossil record of the Marsupialia, like many other groups, is incomplete and bias as with preservation and differences in sampling and study, which leads to the changes in Marsupialia classification.
  The study of Marsupialia began in the 16th century with the discovery of opossums by Spanish explorers to North America.
The concept of change is a major component in explaining the evolution of marsupials and plate tectonics.

 Order Marsupialia
The order Marsupialia is rarely used nowadays, as a new way of classifying marsupials has been gaining popularity with a seven-order system, instead of a one-order system.
Most marsupials resemble placental mammals in one form or another, including mice, rats, squirrels, dogs, cats, bears, shrews, and moles, although some are unique in appearance in the animal kingdom.
Because of this diversity in appearance and food, the order Marsupialia is not very adequate, and the seven-order, 19- family system which divides up the order Marsupialia is becoming accepted.

 marsupial --  Encyclopædia Britannica   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-22)
a member of the mammalian superorder (or order—authorities differ) Marsupialia, which includes a diversity of primitive mammals that undergo premature birth and complete their development outside the mother's body while attached to her nipples.
The species vary in body length from 5 to 22 cm (2 to 9 inches), and all have tails, often brushlike, that are about as long as their bodies.
Found in hot sandy wastes of south-central and northwestern Australia, the 18-centimetre (7-inch) N. typhlops and the 10-centimetre (4-inch) N. caurinus (by some not separated from N. typhlops) are remarkably like true moles.

THE ORDER MARSUPIALIA: Although marsupials join the ranks of other mammals as distinct from egg-layers, they are nevertheless a unique group deserving of recognition at a high level.
They thus receive their own infraclass of Metatheria, Changing Mammals, which separates them from the other 18 orders of true placental mammals, which are placed in the infraclass Eutheria, True Mammals.

 [No title]
Although living metatherians are uniformly accepted as marsupials, the inclusion in Marsupialia of stem fossil groups is controversial, varying among sources.
(1988) and more explicitly stated for mammals by Rowe (1987, 1988) in which traditional names, such as Marsupialia, are restricted to the crown group, i.e., the clade formed by the common ancestor of living metatherians, plus all its descendants.
This approach follows the same logic used to restrict the term Placentalia to crown group eutherians, Theria to the descendants of the common ancestor of marsupials and placentals, and Mammalia to the descendants of the common ancestor of monotremes and therians.
