Evolutionary history of passerine birds (Aves: Passeriformes) from the Qinghai–Tibetan plateau: from a pre-Quarternary perspective to an integrative biodiversity assessment
As one of the most prominent topographical features on Earth, the Qinghai–Tibetan plateau (QTP) underwent a long and complex history of the QTP uplift from the collision of the Indian and theExpand
