there is a lot of litterature on the subject. If you do not know them,
you could start with these :

Novacek (1992) "Mammalian phylogeny : shaking the tree" Nature 356: 121-125
[mostly morphologic]

Li et al. (1990) "Molecular phylogeny of Rodentia, Lagomorpha, Primates,
Artiodactyla, and Carnivora and molecular clocks" PNAS 87: 6703-6707

in general, for both morphologic and molecular approaches, look at all
issues of 'Journal of Mammalian Evolution'.

hope this helps,
