Convergent evolution of morphological and ecological traits in the open-habitat chat complex (Aves, Muscicapidae: Saxicolinae).
TLDR
This work presents the most comprehensive molecular phylogenetic analysis of this group of genera to date, with a complete taxon sampling at the species level, and proposes a revised generic classification for the whole group. Expand
Colonization and diversification of the white-browed shortwing (Aves: Muscicapidae: Brachypteryx montana) in the Philippines.
TLDR
Investigation of the history and geography of diversification of the Philippine populations of a widespread montane bird, the White-browed Shortwing, provides insight into how topography and island boundaries influence diversification within remote oceanic archipelagos and demonstrates that taxonomic diversity continues to be underestimated in the Philippines. Expand
Niltavinae, a new taxon of Old World flycatchers (Aves: Muscicapidae).
TLDR
Given that Niltavinae Sangster, Alström, Forsmark & Olsson, 2010 represents a nomen nudum, and the clade for which this name was intended thus remains unnamed, the following description is provided. Expand
Phylogeny and biogeography of Ficedula flycatchers (Aves: Muscicapidae): novel results from fresh source material.
TLDR
This work expanded taxon and character sampling over previous studies and produced a robust hypothesis of relationships for the genus Ficedula, which resulted in a simpler biogeographic scenario with fewer transitions between regions and less transitions between seasonally migratory and resident character states. Expand
Multi-locus phylogenetic analysis of Old World chats and flycatchers reveals extensive paraphyly at family, subfamily and genus level (Aves: Muscicapidae).
TLDR
A high number of traditionally defined genera was found to be paraphyletic or polyphyletic, and four major clades are recognized in Muscicapinae, Niltavinae (new family-group name), Erithacinae and Saxicolinae. Expand
Taxonomy of the European Pied Flycatcher Ficedula hypoleuca (Aves: Muscicapidae)
TLDR
A historical review of this species’ nomenclature is presented, to help to mitigate errors in application of names in other contexts, and to point out areas in which future work is needed. Expand
The Rusty-tailed Flycatcher (Muscicapa ruficauda; Aves: Muscicapidae) is a member of the genus Ficedula.
TLDR
Using a Bayesian phylogenetic assessment of the Muscicapidae with near-complete taxon sampling of the genus Ficedula for five loci, along with an acoustic comparison of M. ruficauda to a subset of other flycatcher species, it is shown that this species should be reassigned to the genusFicedula and accordingly that the names Ripleyia and Ripleyornis are both junior synonyms of Ficedulum. Expand
Resolving taxonomic uncertainty and historical biogeographic patterns in Muscicapa flycatchers and their allies.
TLDR
Afrotropical forest dynamics appear to have played a significant role in driving diversification in Muscicapa and allies, and the results include just the second recorded case of southern to northern African colonization patterns. Expand
Molecular and morphological evidences place the extinct New Zealand endemic Turnagra capensis in the Oriolidae.
TLDR
Molecular and phenotypic characters strongly suggest a novel hypothesis, congruently placing Turnagra in Oriolidae, a highly dispersive corvoid family distributed from the Austro-Papuan landmass to Eurasia and Africa, but missing from the Pacific islands. Expand

Assessing the passerine "Tapestry": phylogenetic relationships of the Muscicapoidea inferred from nuclear DNA sequences.
TLDR
Nuclear DNA sequences confirm the monophyly of the "core muscicapoid" group, as defined by Barker et al. and support the sister-group relationship of the Sturnidae and Mimidae and the Old World flycatchers and robins, on the other. Expand
Phylogeny of Passerida (Aves: Passeriformes) based on nuclear and mitochondrial sequence data.
TLDR
The African rockfowl and rockjumper are found to constitute the deepest branch within Passerida, but relationships among the other taxa are poorly resolved--only four major clades receive statistical support. Expand
Systematics of Ficedula flycatchers (Muscicapidae): a molecular reassessment of a taxonomic enigma.
TLDR
Using three mitochondrial genes, the first assessment of phylogenetic relationships among Ficedula species to include the consideration of presumed subgenera or "groupings" within the genus, and between Ficedulas and its putative sister genera is provided. Expand
The African warbler genus Hyliota as a lost lineage in the Oscine songbird tree: molecular support for an African origin of the Passerida.
TLDR
The results, which also include analyses of relationships among other of other atypical songbird genera, lend support to an African origin of the Passerida songbird radiation. Expand
Systematic relationships and biogeography of the tracheophone suboscines (Aves: Passeriformes).
Based on their highly specialized "tracheophone" syrinx, the avian families Furnariidae (ovenbirds), Dendrocolaptidae (woodcreepers), Formicariidae (ground antbirds), Thamnophilidae (typicalExpand
Molecular systematics and evolutionary history of kalats (genus Sheppardia): a pre-Pleistocene radiation in a group of African forest birds.
TLDR
Intraspecific radiations suggest a far more recent population expansion in the upper Pleistocene of East Africa's montane region, concordant with major climatic variation and vegetational changes. Expand
A new Indo-Malayan member of the Stenostiridae (Aves: Passeriformes) revealed by multilocus sequence data: biogeographical implications for a morphologically diverse clade of flycatchers.
TLDR
The phylogenetic relationships and biogeographic history of the Stenostiridae are addressed using a combination of mitochondrial and nuclear data, and its taxonomic validity under the rules of the International Code of Zoological Nomenclature is clarified. Expand
Sapayoa aenigma: a New World representative of 'Old World suboscines'
TLDR
Sapayoa aenigma, a member of the large group of New World flycatchers, has been difficult to place, and DNA-DNA hybridization experiments have indicated that it may have been misplaced, but base sequencing of two nuclear genes places it as a deep branch in the group of broadbills and pittas of the Old World tropics. Expand
Phylogeny of Palaearctic wheatears (genus Oenanthe)--congruence between morphometric and molecular data.
TLDR
DNA sequences of 1180 bp of two mitochondrial genes, 16S rRNA and cytochrome oxidase subunit I, from 32 individuals from Middle East and North Africa and Bayesian methods are used to derive a phylogeny for 11 species of Oenanthe, indicating that characters related to colouration and ecology in Oenantshe are more strongly influenced by homoplasy than those of body shape.

A NEW SPECIES OF AKALAT (SHEPPARDIA) NARROWLY ENDEMIC IN THE EASTERN ARC OF TANZANIA
TLDR
External morphology and mitochondrial and nuclear DNA sequence data are used to corroborate the recognition of a new species of small forest robins, Sheppardia aurantiithorax, and show relatively high levels of sequence divergence among populations of the different species. Expand
