From Simple English Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Boreoeutheria are mammals that are the third superorder of placental mammals.[1]

Temporal range: Paleocene–Recent
Euarchontoglires and Laurasiatheria
Scientific classification e
Kingdom: Animalia
Phylum: Chordata
Class: Mammalia
Clade: Eutheria
Infraclass: Placentalia
Magnorder: Boreoeutheria
Springer & de Jong, 2001;[2] Murphy et al., 2001[3]
  • Boreoplacentalia (Arnason, 2008)[4]
  • Boreotheria (Waddell, 2001)

They evolved on the northern supercontinent Laurasia after it split from Gondwana when Pangaea broke up.

Lentivirus, or Retrovirus can affect these mammals, as well as humans which are part of this magnorder.
