Annotated checklist of the birds of Brazil by the Brazilian Ornithological Records Committee / Lista comentada das aves do Brasil pelo Comitê Brasileiro de Registros Ornitológicos
For the first time, all bird subspecies known from Brazil that are currently accepted by at least one key ornithological reference work are listed.
Earth history and the passerine superradiation

Recon reconstructing passerine evolutionary history and producing the most comprehensive time-calibrated phylogenetic hypothesis of the group, which suggests more complex mechanisms than temperature change or ecological opportunity have controlled macroscale patterns of passerine speciation.
A phylogenetic approach to disentangling the role of competition and habitat filtering in community assembly of Neotropical forest birds.

The phylogenetic structure of antbird assemblages cannot be explained by the history of speciation and dispersal of antbirds, further supporting the habitat-filtering hypothesis and emphasizing the importance of including trait information in studies of phylogenetic community structure to adequately assess the mechanisms that determine species co-existence.
The evolution of a tropical biodiversity hotspot

It is observed that higher and more constant speciation rates occur in harsh environments relative to the tropics, and the results reveal a model in which species are forming faster in environmental extremes but have accumulated in moderate environments to form tropical biodiversity hotspots.
Taxonomic revision of Myrmeciza (Aves: Passeriformes: Thamnophilidae) into 12 genera based on phylogenetic, morphological, behavioral, and ecological data.
A comprehensive molecular phylogeny of the family Thamnophilidae indicated that the genus Myrmeciza (Gray) is not monophyletic. Species currently assigned to the genus are found in three of the five…
CHANGES IN WINTER DESTINATIONS AND THE NORTHERNMOST RECORD OF SOUTHEASTERN PACIFIC HUMPBACK WHALES
Annotated checklist of the birds of Brazil by the Brazilian Ornithological Records Committee—second edition

- Environmental Science, BiologyOrnithology Research
- 1 June 2021
An updated version of the checklist of birds of Brazil is presented, along with a summary of the changes approved by the Brazilian Ornithological Records Committee’s Taxonomy Subcommittee since the first edition, published in 2015, as well as explanations of taxonomic changes, nomenclatural corrections, new occurrences, and other changes implemented since the last edition.
Embracing heterogeneity: coalescing the Tree of Life and the future of phylogenomics
It is argued that phylogenomics stands to benefit by embracing the many heterogeneous genomic signals emerging from the first decade of large-scale phylogenetic analysis spawned by high-throughput sequencing (HTS), and that an integrative cyberinfrastructure linking all steps of the process of building the ToL, from specimen acquisition in the field to publication and tracking of phylogenomic data, are essential for progress.
Evidence for the Pleistocene Arc Hypothesis from genome‐wide SNPs in a Neotropical dry forest specialist, the Rufous‐fronted Thornbird (Furnariidae: Phacellodomus rufifrons)

The idea that currently disjunct patches of dry forest were more connected in the recent past, probably during the Middle and Late Pleistocene, supports the idea that this biome was more widely distributed and contiguous under drier climate conditions in the Pleistsocene.
Phenotypic and Niche Evolution in the Antbirds (Aves: Thamnophilidae)
- Gustavo A. Bravo
It is suggested that within the next few weeks, the water quality in the Gulf of Mexico will improve, and the quality of the water in the surrounding area will also improve.
