A Supplement To Distribution And Taxonomy Of Birds Of The World
This supplement to Sibley and Monroe's "Distribution and Taxonomy of Birds of the World" presents changes in systematics that they have noted through May 1992, including a change in the total number of living species to 9702.
ECOLOGICAL SOURCES OF SELECTION ON AVIAN SOUNDS
- C. G. Sibley
Considerable importance is placed on the identification and measurement of sources of natural selection, the one unifying process in the biological sciences. Usually, sources of selection can only be…

THE classical hypothesis for the diversification of birds and mammals proposes that most of the orders diverged rapidly in adaptive radiations after the Cretaceous/Tertiary (K/T) extinction event 65…
The Birds Reclassified. (Book Reviews: Phylogeny and Classification of Birds. A Study in Molecular Evolution.)
The early history of modern birds inferred from DNA sequences of nuclear and mitochondrial ribosomal genes.
Phylogenetic results suggest that the earliest neornithines were heavy-bodied, ground-dwelling, nonmarine birds, and this inference provides a possible explanation for the large gap in the early fossil record of birds.
DNA-DNA hybridization evidence of the rapid rate of muroid rodent DNA evolution.
The results agree with previous reports of accelerated DNA evolution in muroid rodents and extend the DNA-DNA hybridization data set of Brownell.
A World Checklist of Birds
This book provides a list of 9,702 living avian species based on their 1990 book Distribution and Taxonomy of Birds of the World and its 1993 Supplement and gives the Latin and English names for the species recognised in that work and in the Supplement.
The phylogeny of the hominoid primates, as indicated by DNA-DNA hybridization
This work has compared the single-copy nuclear DNA sequences of the hominoid genera using DNA-DNA hybridization to produce a complete matrix of delta T50H values and shows that the branching sequence of the lineages was: Old World monkeys, gibbons, Orangutan, Gorilla, chimpanzees, and Man.
DNA hybridization evidence of hominoid phylogeny: Results from an expanded data set
An expanded data set totaling 514 DNA hybrids supports the branching order given above for the phylogeny of the hominoids, and the possible effects of differences in age at first breeding are discussed.
