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… Expand
A supermatrix phylogeny of corvoid passerine birds (Aves: Corvides).
TLDR
Using an approach that enforces temporal consistency by causing the fewest possible taxonomic changes to currently recognized families and genera, the current familial classification is found to be largely temporally consistent, whereas that of genera is not. Expand
Molecular phylogeny of songbirds (Aves: Passeriformes) and the relative utility of common nuclear marker loci
TLDR
The data indicate that this gene is—at least in passerines—suitable for inference of even old taxonomic splits, and the ZENK trees exhibited by far the best resolution and showed the lowest amount of homoplasy. Expand
A revised multilocus phylogeny of Old World sparrows (Aves: Passeridae)
The Old World sparrows include some of the best-studied passerine species, such as the cosmopolitan human commensal, the house sparrow (Passer domesticus) as well as poorly studied narrow-rangeExpand
A phylogeny of the Passerida (Aves: Passeriformes) based on mitochondrial 12S ribosomal RNA gene
TLDR
The results identified the monophyly of the three superfamilies in Passerida: Sylvioidea, Muscicapoidea and Passeroidea; however, current delimitation of some species is at variance with the phylogeny estimate. Expand
A phylogenetic supertree of the fowls (Galloanserae, Aves)
TLDR
The supertree represents one of the most comprehensive estimates for the Anseriformes and Galliformes to date, including 376 species, and indicated that more than 30% of the polytypic genera examined were not monophyletic, suggesting that results from genus‐level comparative studies using the average of the constituent species’ traits should be interpreted with caution until analogous species‐ level comparative studies are available.

Evolutionary history and biogeography of the drongos (Dicruridae), a tropical Old World clade of corvoid passerines.
TLDR
A general discrepancy is pointed out between the so-called "primitive" or "unspecialized" species and their position in the phylogenetic tree, although the results for other species are congruent with previous hypotheses. Expand
A molecular phylogeny of the Sierra-Finches (Phrygilus, Passeriformes): extreme polyphyly in a group of Andean specialists.
TLDR
This work uses mitochondrial and nuclear DNA sequences to derive the first phylogenetic hypothesis for Phrygilus (Sierra-Finches), one of the most species-rich genera of mainly Andean passerines, and finds strong evidence that the genus is polyphyletic. Expand
Reweaving the Tapestry: a Supertree of Birds
TLDR
This is a first attempt at a supertree of both extinct and extant birds, not intended to be utilised in an overhaul of avian systematics or as a basis for taxonomic re-classification but provides a strong basis on which to base further studies on macroevolution, conservation, biodiversity, comparative biology and character evolution. Expand
Phylogenetic relationships within Passerida (Aves: Passeriformes): a review and a new molecular phylogeny based on three nuclear intron markers.
TLDR
The current knowledge of the phylogenetic relationships within Passerida is reviewed and a new phylogeny based on three nuclear introns (myoglobin intron 2, ornithine decarboxylase introns 6 and 7, as well as beta-fibrinogen intron 5) is presented. Expand
Determining biogeographical patterns of dispersal and diversification in oscine passerine birds in Australia, Southeast Asia and Africa
TLDR
Crown Corvida spread from Australia to Southeast Asia, with several dispersal events around the time whenthe terranes of Australian and Indomalayan origin came close together some15 Ma, and a single dispersal event went from Australia across the Indian Ocean to Africa c. 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
A phylogenetic hypothesis for passerine birds: taxonomic and biogeographic implications of an analysis of nuclear DNA sequence data
TLDR
The hypothesis of relationships presented here suggests that the oscine passerines arose on the Australian continental plate while it was isolated by oceanic barriers and that a major northern radiation of oscines originated subsequent to dispersal from the south. Expand

TLDR
The historical framework suggests multiple waves of passerine dispersal from Australasia into Eurasia, Africa, and the New World, commencing as early as the Eocene, essentially reversing the classical scenario of oscine biogeography. Expand

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

TLDR
Although Anthus cytochrome b is found not to be behaving in a clocklike fashion across all taxa, speciation during the Pleistocene epoch can be reasonably inferred for the 66% of sister pairs that are diverging in aClocklike manner. Expand
Speciation in African Forest Robins (Stiphrornis): Species Limits, Phylogenetic Relationships, and Molecular Biogeography
TLDR
The monotypic genus Stiphrornis is revised under a phylogenetic species concept to include four species, one of which, from the southwest Central African Republic, is new, and the notion that patterns of geographic variation in the lowland forests of West and Central Africa are still incompletely understood is reinforced.

TLDR
This work sequenced 890 base pairs of the mitochondrial cytochrome-b gene for 28 of the 29 icterid genera and subgenera and found strong evidence of five lineages of blackbirds: grackles and allies; caciques and oropendolas; orioles; meadowlarks and allies%; and a monotypic cup- nesting cacique lineage.
