A recent molecular timescale for major lineages of the Galliformes indicated that Megapodiidae and possibly Cracidae, originated in the Cretaceous, while the remaining families originated in the Tertiary. This timescale was based on clock-like evolution in genetic and taxonomic partitions of mitochondrial ND2 and cyt b DNA sequences, and assumed that ordinal diversification of Galloanserae around 90 million years ago and imposed, whenever appropriate, minimum age constraints based on the fossil… CONTINUE READING
