A new time tree reveals Earth history’s imprint on the evolution of modern birds
Estimates of the timing of evolution of modern birds reveals the influence of paleogeography and paleoclimate on diversification. Determining the timing of diversification of modern birds has beenExpand

LINEAGE DIVERSIFICATION AND MORPHOLOGICAL EVOLUTION IN A LARGE‐SCALE CONTINENTAL RADIATION: THE NEOTROPICAL OVENBIRDS AND WOODCREEPERS (AVES: FURNARIIDAE)
Patterns of diversification in species‐rich clades provide insight into the processes that generate biological diversity. We tested different models of lineage and phenotypic diversification in anExpand

High dispersal ability inhibits speciation in a continental radiation of passerine birds
Dispersal can stimulate speciation by facilitating geographical expansion across barriers or inhibit speciation by maintaining gene flow among populations. Therefore, the relationship betweenExpand

The study of continental adaptive radiations has lagged behind research on their island counterparts in part because the mere identification of adaptive radiations is more challenging at continentalExpand

Species coexistence and the dynamics of phenotypic evolution in adaptive radiation
Interactions between species can promote evolutionary divergence of ecological traits and social signals, a process widely assumed to generate species differences in adaptive radiation. However, anExpand

Earth history and the passerine superradiation
Significance Our understanding of the factors that affected the diversification of passerines, the most diverse and widespread bird order (Passeriformes), is limited. Here, we reconstruct passerineExpand

A NEW FOSSIL FURNARIID FROM THE PLEISTOCENE OF URUGUAY, WITH REMARKS ON NASAL TYPE, CRANIAL KINETICS, AND RELATIONSHIPS OF THE EXTINCT GENUS PSEUDOSEISUROPSIS
Abstract We describe Pseudoseisuropsis cuelloi, a new fossil furnariid from the upper Pleistocene of Uruguay, and investigate its phylogenetic relationships. Results of a cladistic analysis using 52Expand

CORRELATED EVOLUTION OF BEAK MORPHOLOGY AND SONG IN THE NEOTROPICAL WOODCREEPER RADIATION
Mating signals may diversify as a byproduct of morphological adaptation to different foraging niches, potentially driving speciation. Although many studies have focused on the direct influence ofExpand

Dispersal has inhibited avian diversification in Australasian archipelagoes
Different models of speciation predict contrasting patterns in the relationship between the dispersal ability of lineages and their diversification rates. This relationship is expected to be negativeExpand
