Phylogenetic relations and range history of jerboas of the Allactaginae subfamily (Dipodidae, Rodentia)

This study employed current methods of molecular phylogenetics based on 15 nuclear genes and the mitochondrial gene cytb to revise relations and systematics within Allactaginae and suggested the dating and location of speciation events and present hypotheses regarding general habitat niche conservatism in small mammals.

Phylogenetic relationships of endemic bunting species (Aves, Passeriformes, Emberizidae, Emberiza koslowi ) from the eastern Qinghai-Tibet Plateau

The Tibetan bunting, E. koslowi, turned out as an early offshoot of the Western Palearctic-Tibetan clade 1 and thus represents an ancient relic lineage that dates back to a mid Miocene colonization event of its ancestors to the alpine plateau habitats.

Evolutionary history of passerine birds (Aves: Passeriformes) from the Qinghai–Tibetan plateau: from a pre-Quarternary perspective to an integrative biodiversity assessment

A multidisciplinary approach combining genetic, bioacoustic and morphological markers shed new light on the phylogenetic relationships of Pnoepyga wren babblers and on the intraspecific subdivision of the Buff-barred Warbler (Phylloscopus pulcher).

Discovery of a relict lineage and monotypic family of passerine birds

It is concluded that the spotted wren-babbler represents a relict basal lineage within Passerida with no close extant relatives, and the new family name Elachuridae is proposed for this single species.

The explosive radiation, intense host-shifts and long-term failure to speciate in the evolutionary history of the feather mite genus Analges (Acariformes: Analgidae) from European passerines

The phylogenetic analysis supported the monophyly of the genus Analges, but it did not support previous taxonomic hypotheses subdividing the genus into the subgenera AnAlges and Analgopsis or arranging some species into the A. chelopus and A. passerinus species groups.

The evolutionary history of Afrocanarian blue tits inferred from genomewide SNPs

P phylogenetic analyses based on genomewide single‐nucleotide polymorphisms of an enigmatic avian radiation, the subspecies complex of Afrocanarian blue tits, find strong population structuring that largely confirmed subspecies monophyly and constructed a coalescent‐based phylogeny with full support at all major nodes.

Disentangling the complex evolutionary history of the Western Palearctic blue tits (Cyanistes spp.) – phylogenomic analyses suggest radiation by multiple colonization events and subsequent isolation

Demographic reconstructions revealed that the Canary Islands, conforming to traditional views, hold sink populations, which have not served as source for back colonization of the African mainland, and demonstrates the importance of complete taxon sampling and an extensive multimarker study design to obtain robust phylogeographical inferences.

Phylogeny of titmice (Paridae): I. Estimate of relationships among subgenera based on DNA-DNA hybridization

The phylogenetic relationships of titmice and chickadees (Passeriformes: Paridae) were estimated by DNA-DNA hybridization and a major subdivision in the family was strongly indicated: the great tits and the blue tits formed a clade that is the sister taxon of the rest of the family.

A nuclear DNA phylogeny and proposed taxonomic revision of African greenbuls (Aves, Passeriformes, Pycnonotidae)

The phylogenetic relationships within the African clade is investigated, which with the exclusion of Pycnonotus contains approximately 50 species, of which the majority are placed in three large genera Andropadus, Phyllastrephus and Chlorocichla, and indicates that none of the three largest currently recognized genera are monophyletic.
