Abstract We used complete mitochondrial cytochrome b sequences, largely obtained from sequences deposited with GenBank, supplemented by published sequences, from most genera and most species among the Procellariiformes to infer their phylogeny and molecular taxonomy. We analysed both issues of higher-level relationships within the order, and questions of the correct classification of taxa at the levels of genus, subgenus, species and subspecies. Nucleotide sequence data of cytochrome b are… Expand
The complete phylogeny of Pseudobulweria, the most endangered seabird genus: systematics, species status and conservation implications
TLDR
The Fiji petrel’s status, as belonging to the genus, is confirmed, as is the specific status of newly rediscovered Beck's petrel, and maintenance of the two sub-species of Tahiti petrel as currently described is not supported. Expand
Speciation and phylogeography of giant petrels Macronectes.
TLDR
Examination of genetic variation at cytochrome b as well as six microsatellite loci in giant petrels from 22 islands suggested a period of past population expansion that corresponded roughly to the timing of speciation and the separation of an ancestral giant Petrel population from the fulmar Fulmarus clade. Expand
Pitfalls in comparisons of genetic distances: a case study of the avian family Acrocephalidae.
TLDR
It is suggested that (1) different loci are incomparable, and only perfectly homologous regions (same length, same part of locus) should be compared, and (2) only distances based on the optimal substitution model should be used. Expand
A phylogenetic test of sympatric speciation in the Hydrobatinae (Aves: Procellariiformes).
TLDR
A variety of mechanisms of divergence have played a role in generating the diversity of the Hydrobatinae and supports the current taxonomy of the subfamily, which is a diverse subfamily of Northern Hemisphere storm-petrels. Expand
Phylogenetic affinities and taxonomy of the Oligocene Diomedeoididae, and the basal divergences amongst extant procellariiform birds
TLDR
A comprehensive collection of diomedeoidid fossils from the Rupelian stratotype in Belgium are described, which allows the recognition of previously unknown features of phylogenetic significance and contradicting recent proposals that Oceanitinae (southern storm-petrels) are the earliest diverging crown group Procellariiformes. Expand
One Tree to Link Them All: A Phylogenetic Dataset for the European Tetrapoda
TLDR
A dataset of 100 dated phylogenetic trees for all European tetrapods based on a mixture of supermatrix and supertree approaches for comparative analyses, macro-ecological or community ecology studies aiming to incorporate phylogenetic information while accounting for phylogenetic uncertainty. Expand
A comprehensive phylogeny of birds (Aves) using targeted next-generation DNA sequencing
TLDR
The results of the divergence time analyses are congruent with the palaeontological record, supporting a major radiation of crown birds in the wake of the Cretaceous–Palaeogene (K–Pg) mass extinction. Expand
Phylogenetic relationships of the extinct St Helena petrel, Pterodroma rupinarum Olson, 1975 (Procellariiformes: Procellariidae), based on ancient DNA
Palaeontological studies show that three endemic procellariid seabird species became extinct on the remote island of St Helena in the South Atlantic Ocean. At least one of these, Pterodroma rupinarumExpand
Integrating Sequence Capture and Restriction Site-Associated DNA Sequencing to Resolve Recent Radiations of Pelagic Seabirds
TLDR
It is shown that combining phylogenomic markers that evolve at different rates, such as paired-end double-digest restriction site-associated DNA (PE-ddRAD) and ultraconserved elements (UCEs), allows a comprehensive exploration of the causes of phylogenetic discordance associated with short internodes at different timescales. 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.

The Debate over Species Concepts and Its Implications for Ornithology
TLDR
It is thought that a concept consistent with the PSC should replace "biological" species concepts, and reasons are given for why the P SC is the preferred concept for comparative biology, phylogenetic inference, historical biogeography, estimation of bio- diversity, hybrid-zone analysis, conservation biology, and speciation analysis. Expand
Quantification of homoplasy for nucleotide transitions and transversions and a reexamination of assumptions in weighted phylogenetic analysis.
TLDR
Although homoplastic and consistent transition and transversion changes in mitochondrial protein coding genes were determined from character-state reconstructions on a highly corroborated phylogeny of mammals, it was found that although homoplasy was related to evolutionary rates and was greater for transitions, the absolute number of consistent transitions greatly exceeded thenumber of consistent transversions.

Body size effects and rates of cytochrome b evolution in tube-nosed seabirds.
TLDR
The results support previous findings of body size effects and show that this effect can be significant even within a single avian order, and suggests that even lineage-specific molecular clocks may not be tenable if calibrations involve taxa with different metabolic rates. Expand

Species Concepts and Speciation Analysis
TLDR
A new mechanistic taxonomy of speciation is needed before population genetics, which deals with evolutionary mechanisms, can be properly integrated with speciation theory; that is, the various modes of Speciation should be characterized according to the various forces and genetic mechanisms that underly the evolution of isolating barriers.
