Phylogenetic analyses indicate an early split between Accipitridae and Falconidae, which can be assumed to have taken place in the late Cretaceous 65-83 MYA, according to molecular dating of other avian divergence times.

Phylogeny of the Neuropterida: a first molecular approach
P phylogenetic analysis of the heterogeneous Neuroptera remains a challenge with respect to selection of the proper genes and mutatis mutandis the morphological approach, and the hypothesis of a sister‐group relationship Raphidioptera put forward in recent morphological analyses is supported.

PLECOTUS MICRODONTUS (MAMMALIA, VESPERTILIONIDAE), A NEW BAT SPECIES FROM AUSTRIA
A genetic analysis and morphological analysis of specimens from the Dalmatian island of Lastovo revealed the fact that clade 2 in SPITZENBERGER et al. (2001) does not represent P. kolombatovici, which is a separate species related to P. austriacus, and has to be considered a new species, P. microdontus n.
Genetic divergences and intraspecific variation in corvids of the genus Corvus (Aves: Passeriformes: Corvidae) - a first survey based on museum specimens
The distribution of plumage colour in the phylogenetic tree indicates that the pale markings evolved several times independently, and confirms earlier assumptions of a Palearctic origin of the genus Corvus with several independent colonizations of the Nearctic and the Aethiopis.
A preliminary revision of the genus Plecotus (Chiroptera, Vespertilionidae) based on genetic and morphological results
The Early Oligocene age of the presumed ancestor of the Plecotini and a correlation of the molecular diversifications with palaeogeographic reconstructions suggest that the divergence of the two major lineages may have occurred already during the Middle Miocene, 14.5 Mya.
