  • Andean uplift contributed importantly to the build‐up of high Neotropical diversity. Final uplift of the Eastern Cordillera of Colombia separated once‐contiguous lowland faunas east and west of the Andes between 5 and 3.5 million years ago (Ma hereafter). We used DNA sequences from several moderate‐ to fast‐evolving mitochondrial and two slow‐evolving nuclear genes to generate a well‐supported phylogeny of Dendrocincla woodcreepers, a genus with multiple species endemic to lowland regions both… CONTINUE READING
