Molecular systematics of the Malagasy babblers (Passeriformes: timaliidae) and warblers (Passeriformes: sylviidae), based on cytochrome b and 16S rRNA sequences.
These results show that the Timaliidae did not disperse to Madagascar, Rather, the island has been colonized, independently, by at least two clades of warblers, probably originating from Africa, where the Sylviidae radiation has been the most extensive.

The endemic Malagasy songbird clade rivals other island radiations, including the vangas of Madagascar and the finches of the Galapagos, in ecological diversity.
BIOGEOGRAPHY OF EASTERN POLYNESIAN MONARCHS (POMAREA): AN ENDEMIC GENUS CLOSE TO EXTINCTION
It is suggested that these differences are due to a latent period during which the islands were emergent but not successully colonized by Pomarea taxa, and Phylogenetic hypotheses suggest that several species are polyphyletic.
A GLOBAL MOLECULAR PHYLOGENY OF THE SMALL PUFFINUS SHEARWATERS AND IMPLICATIONS FOR SYSTEMATICS OF THE LITTLE-AUDUBON'S SHEARWATER COMPLEX
Abstract A molecular phylogeny based on 917 base pairs (bp) of the mitochondrial (mt) DNA cytochrome-b gene was used to test and reassess the systematics and conflicting taxonomic treatments of the…
Molecular Systematics of the Subfamily Caprinae (Artiodactyla, Bovidae) as Determined from Cytochrome b Sequences
These differentially weighted parsimony analyses indicate that the subfamily Caprinae is monophyletic, but only with the exclusion of Saiga from the group, and there is no support for monophyly of the four tribes currently recognized.
Synchronous intercontinental splits between assemblages of woodpeckers suggested by molecular data
The estimates of colonization times of South America predate the closure of the Panama Isthmus and support the hypothesis of a short‐lived, terrestrial corridor at the end of the Miocene, 5.7 Myr BP.

Morphological space bears a close relationship to diet, substrate use, and foraging movements, and thus the results demonstrate the great extent of the evolutionary diversification of the Madagascan vangas.
The African warbler genus Hyliota as a lost lineage in the Oscine songbird tree: molecular support for an African origin of the Passerida.
Molecular phylogenetics of babblers (Timaliidae): revaluation of the genera Yuhina and Stachyris
This study of the systematics and phylogeny of the Timaliidae used molecular markers to clarify the evolution of this complex group of Old World insectivorous passerines.

This work reconstructed the phylogeographic history of a group of closely related passerines, the Alophoixus bulbuls, and detected evidence of population expansion in two subspecies, including one that was involved in the closing of the ring.
