localities in southwestern and southern Mxi- co, is a rare bird both in the field and in mu- seum collections. The nest and eggs have not been described, nor has an anatomical speci- men been available for study heretofore. Law- rence (1875) originally assigned it to Myiar- chus, but Ridgway (1893) created the monotypic genus Deltarhynchus and cited the relatively shorter and more broadly triangular bill, more rounded wing, and the partly streaked under- parts. Subsequent checklists (Hellmayr…

The systematic position of the cocos flycatcher
TLDR
A comparative study of the skull and syrinx demonstrates that the nearest relatives of Nesotriccus are Phaeomyias murina and Capsiempisflaveola in the subfamily Elaeniinae, since all three genera share unique derived character states of the nasal septum and of the supporting elements of the syrinX.
GENERIC STATUS OF EULER'S FLYCATCHER: A MORPHOLOGICAL AND BIOCHEMICAL STUDY
ABSTR^CT.--A concordance in the distribution of uniquely derived character states of the syrinx and of six protein coding loci confirms that euleri should be removed from the genus Empidonax and that
Breeding ecology of Rufous Casiornis Casiornis rufus in south-east Brazil
Summary. We present new reproductive information for the Rufous Casiornis Casiornis rufus, based on studies undertaken during 1991–99 and in 2018, in the municipality of Arcos, Minas Gerais,
Tyrant flycatchers coming out in the open : phylogeny and ecological radiation of Tyrannidae ( Aves , Passeriformes )

Towards a phylogenetic framework for the evolution of shakes, rattles, and rolls in Myiarchus tyrant-flycatchers (Aves: Passeriformes: Tyrannidae).
TLDR
The phylogeny of 19 of the 22 currently recognized species of Myiarchus tyrant-flycatchers is presented and suggests that ecological study of closely related species from within each major clade where they are sympatric will be especially rewarding.
Tyrant flycatchers coming out in the open: phylogeny and ecological radiation of Tyrannidae (Aves, Passeriformes)
TLDR
A well‐resolved phylogeny based on DNA sequences from three nuclear introns for 128 taxa is presented, confirming much of the overall picture of Tyrannidae relationships, and also identifying several novel relationships.
Nesting Record and Population Phenology of the Flammulated Flycatcher (Deltarhynchus flammulatus)
TLDR
Assessment of the population phenology of the Flammulated Flycatcher in the Chamela-Cuixmala Biosphere Reserve suggests this flycatcher is common at the reserve, which suggests a closer relationship with Myiarchus.
Monophyly of the tyrannidae (Aves): comparison of morphology and DNA
TLDR
The hypothesis of monophyly of the avian family Tyrannidae is tested using outgroup comparison of traditional characters, as well as several characters examined in recent studies of the group, using data obtained from DNA-DNA hybridization.
Molecular phylogenetics and phenotypic reassessment of the Ramphotrigon flycatchers: deep paraphyly in the context of an intriguing biogeographic scenario
TLDR
A taxonomic reorganization of the tyrant‐flycatchers is necessary and a biogeographic model for the evolutionary history of Ramphotrigon and Deltarhynchus in South and Middle America over the past 12 million years is proposed.
The use of court objects by Lawes' Parotia
Males of Lawes' Parotia (Parotia lawesii), a lek-breeding bird of paradise, collected objects at their terrestrial display courts. These included shed snake skin, mammal scats, chalk, mammal fur,

Enzyme clearing of alcian blue stained whole small vertebrates for demonstration of cartilage.
TLDR
Alcohol treatment in addition to formalin fixation does not affect results with this method, it should be useful to researchers who want to study the cartilage or cartilaginous skeletons in museum specimens, which are routinely fixed in formalin and stored in alcohol.
