  • Oscine passerine birds make up almost half of all avian diversity. Relationships within the group, and its classification, have long been controversial. Over the last 10 years numerous molecular phylogenies have been published. We compiled source phylogenies from 99 published studies to construct an oscine supertree. We aimed to illustrate weak and strong parts of the phylogeny and set targets for future phylogenetic work and therefore preferred a heuristic approach where we judged the adequacy… CONTINUE READING
