Whole-genome analyses resolve early branches in the tree of life of modern birds
To better determine the history of modern birds, we performed a genome-scale phylogenetic analysis of 48 species representing all orders of Neoaves using phylogenomic methods created to handleExpand

Comparative genomics reveals insights into avian genome evolution and adaptation
Birds are the most species-rich class of tetrapod vertebrates and have wide relevance across many research fields. We explored bird macroevolution using full genomes from 48 avian speciesExpand

The partitioning of Africa: Statistically defined biogeographical regions in sub-Saharan Africa
Aim  To test whether it is possible to establish a common biogeographical regionalization for plants and vertebrates in sub-Saharan Africa (the Afrotropical Region), using objective multivariateExpand

Local participation in natural resource monitoring: a characterization of approaches.
The monitoring of trends in the status of species or habitats is routine in developed countries, where it is funded by the state or large nongovernmental organizations and often involves largeExpand

Conservation priorities for the forests of the Udzungwa Mountains, Tanzania, based on primates, duikers and birds
Results are presented from 14 surveys in the Udzungwa Mountains, Tanzania. Forest fragments are ranked by occurrence of key species of primates, duikers and birds. Taken together, the West KilomberoExpand

Systematic relationships and biogeography of the tracheophone suboscines (Aves: Passeriformes).
Based on their highly specialized "tracheophone" syrinx, the avian families Furnariidae (ovenbirds), Dendrocolaptidae (woodcreepers), Formicariidae (ground antbirds), Thamnophilidae (typicalExpand

The Role of Mountain Ranges in the Diversification of Birds
Avian faunas vary greatly among montane areas; those at high latitudes are biologically impoverished, whereas those of some low-latitude mountains are biologically very complex. Their high level ofExpand

Major global radiation of corvoid birds originated in the proto-Papuan archipelago
A central paradigm in island biogeography has been the unidirectional “downstream” colonization of islands from continents (source to sink) based on the idea that less-diverse island communities areExpand
