A comprehensive multilocus phylogeny for the wood-warblers and a revised classification of the Parulidae (Aves).

The evolution of sexual dichromatism in tanagers (family Thraupidae) was studied from a phylogenetic perspective using a molecular‐based phylogeny and reveals that changes in female plumage occur more frequently than changes in male plumage.

It is indicated that tanagers probably originated on Caribbean islands and later diversified throughout Central and South America during the mid-Tertiary, and several monophyletic groups are identified that agree with traditional sequential taxonomies.
PHYLOGENETIC RELATIONSHIPS AND MORPHOLOGICAL DIVERSITY IN DARWIN'S FINCHES AND THEIR RELATIVES
Analysis of mitochondrial DNA sequence data from the cytochrome b gene confirm that Darwin's finches are monophyletic, and show that among the relatives of Darwin’s finches, the evolution of bill diversity was also rapid and extensive.
Are the Northern Andes a species pump for Neotropical birds? Phylogenetics and biogeography of a clade of Neotropical tanagers (Aves: Thraupini)
The phylogeny of this Neotropical bird group is used to identify areas of vicariance, reconstruct ancestral zoogeographical areas and elevational distributions, and to investigate the correspondence of geological events to speciation events.
Phylogenetics and diversification of tanagers (Passeriformes: Thraupidae), the largest radiation of Neotropical songbirds.
Molecular phylogenetics and biogeography of Neotropical tanagers in the genus Tangara.

A taxonomy of concepts and terminology in the field of AML is developed, built on and integrating previous AML survey works, and is arranged in a conceptual hierarchy that includes key types of attacks, defenses, and consequences.
MOLECULAR PHYLOGENETICS OF THE GENUS PIRANGA: IMPLICATIONS FOR BIOGEOGRAPHY AND THE EVOLUTION OF MORPHOLOGY AND BEHAVIOR

Mapping the evolution of seasonal migration onto the DNA trees indicates that migration evolved once and is consistent with the idea that P flava as currently described contains more than one evolutionary unit.
Going to extremes: contrasting rates of diversification in a recent radiation of new world passerine birds.
This work presents the first multilocus phylogenetic analyses of this endemic New World radiation of finch relatives that include sampling of all recognized genera, a relaxed molecular clock analysis of its divergence history, and anAnalysis of its broad-scale diversification patterns.
