Conservation genomics reveals multiple evolutionary units within Bell’s Vireo (Vireo bellii)
TLDR
The genetic evidence, together with information from morphology and behavior, suggests that the Bell’s Vireo complex involves two species, each containing two separate subspecies, and this new information has implications for the federal, state and other listing status of Bell's Vires throughout its range.
The origin of finches on Tristan da Cunha and Gough Island, central South Atlantic ocean.
TLDR
Sequences from two mitochondrial and four nuclear genes indicate that the Patagonian bridled finches Melanodera are the closest relatives of the South Atlantic finches.
New distributional records of the Blue-faced Parrotfinch (Erythrura trichroa) in the Solomon Islands
ABSTRACT Despite a long history of biological exploration, there remains much to learn about the avifauna of the Solomon Islands. Here, we report new records of the Blue-faced Parrotfinch (Erythrura
Detailed description of the nest, eggs, and juvenile plumage of the Solomons Nightjar (Eurostopodus nigripennis)
ABSTRACT Little is known of the natural history of the Solomons Nightjar (Eurostopodus nigripennis) due to its restricted range and reclusive nature. Here we describe the breeding biology of E.
Comparative phylogeography and niche modeling for three species complexes of SE China (Paradoxornis spp., Pycnonotus spp., Spizixos spp.)
TLDR
Three species complexes with overlapping distributions in Southeastern China and surrounding islands are used to explore the phylogeographic history of the region and genetic data revealed few congruent patterns, but all complexes displayed genetic divergence for Taiwanese populations.
A new genus and species of tanager (Passeriformes, Thraupidae) from the lower Yungas of western Bolivia and southern Peru
ABSTRACT We describe a colorful and distinctive new species of tanager from the lower slopes of the Andes of southeastern Peru and western Bolivia. The species was first noted from southeastern Peru
