Populations of ten Amazonian bird species were sampled on opposite banks of the Rio Teles Pires, a headwater stream of the Rio Tapajós, in the Alta Floresta region, northern Mato Grosso, Brazil. The river is 100–300 m wide in this region. We found a range of genetic differentiation from none to relatively high levels; six of the ten species studied exhibit what appear to be genetic breaks at the river. With one exception, the antbird Hylophylax poecilinota, there is no morphologically… CONTINUE READING
