Abstract The passerine genus Pomarea (monarchs, Monarchidae) is endemic to eastern Polynesia, where it is distributed on high volcanic islands of the Cook, Society, and Marquesas archipelagos. Recent extinctions of these birds have been documented on several islands, and most of the remaining forms are threatened by introducted rats (Rattus rattus) and habitat loss. We used mitochondrial DNA markers to develop a phylogeny of the entire genus Pomarea, including extinct taxa. This phylogeny was… Expand
Multiple waves of colonization by monarch flycatchers (Myiagra, Monarchidae) across the Indo-Pacific and their implications for coexistence and speciation
TLDR
It is concluded that historical dispersal to and colonization of new islands, combined with ecologically deterministic priority effects, drove the assembly of insular monarch flycatcher communities across the Indo-Pacific. Expand
Biogeography of the fauna of French Polynesia: diversification within and between a series of hot spot archipelagos
TLDR
Molecular markers highlight the rapidity of Polynesian human (plus commensal) migrations and the importance of admixture from other populations during the period of prehistoric human voyages. Expand
New insights into the systematics of the enigmatic Polynesian sandpipers Aechmorhynchus parvirostris and Prosobonia leucoptera
TLDR
The first molecular analysis of the Polynesian sandpipers is presented, and it is suggested that Aechmorhynchus parvirostris and Prosobonia leucoptera be regarded as related species within the same genus, and thus the senior name ProsoBonia be used for both taxa. Expand
Charting the course of reed-warblers across the Pacific islands
TLDR
The phylogeny and biogeography of the insular reed-warblers of the tropical Pacific Ocean are investigated, suggesting a previously undetected case of reverse colonization for the Australian lineage and indicating that A. luscinius, as currently defined, is not monophyletic. Expand
Dynamic colonization exchanges between continents and islands drive diversification in paradise-flycatchers (Terpsiphone, Monarchidae)
TLDR
The phylogenetic results reveal a relatively recent diversification associated with several dispersal events within this group and an Asian origin of the Indian Ocean and African clades, which reinforces a hypothesis of range expansions of a Terpsiphone paradisi-like ancestor into eastern Asia and the western Old World. Expand
Uniform phenotype conceals double colonization by reed‐warblers of a remote Pacific archipelago
TLDR
Analyses of morphological characters show that the size and shape features of the Marquesas reed-warblers exhibit high plasticity linked to adaptation to ecological factors, particularly habitat richness, which is more recent than the islands' formation. 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
Stepping stone speciation in Hawaii’s flycatchers: molecular divergence supports new island endemics within the elepaio
TLDR
Genetic, morphological, and behavioral evidence supports splitting elepaio into three species, one on each island, but does not support recognition of subspecies within Hawaii or other islands. Expand
On the Origin of Sympatric Fruit Doves in a Small and Remote Pacific Archipelago
TLDR
It is concluded that estimated time of divergence of the two species and known ecology of the birds favor the intra-archipelago scenario, while the microallopatry scenario takes into account the large initial size of the islands and involves partitioning of the fruit doves' distributions within the same island. Expand
Molecular phylogeny and dating of an insular endemic moth radiation inferred from mitochondrial and nuclear genes: the genus Galagete (Lepidoptera: Autostichidae) of the Galapagos Islands.
TLDR
A geologically calibrated, relaxed molecular clock model was used for the first time to unravel the chronological sequence of an insular radiation and show a stochastic dispersal pattern in the Galagete lineage. Expand

Understanding the decline and extinction of monarchs (Aves) in Polynesian Islands
TLDR
It is suggested that nest predation by black rats has been the main cause of monarch decline, however observations of direct aggression of adult monarchs by introduced red-vented bulbuls (Pycnonotus cafer), especially when monarchs raise their young, suggest that introduced birds could aggravate the decline of monarch populations already weakened by black Rats.

Extinction of birds in Eastern polynesia: A review of the record, and comparisons with other Pacific Island groups
The study of bones from archaeological sites in Eastern Polynesia has revealed much late Holocene extinction of birds. Because this extinction has been found in all Eastern Polynesian archipelagosExpand
Molecular systematics and biogeography of the Hawaiian avifauna
TLDR
The authors' data provide little evidence that Hawaiian bird lineages predate the formation of the current set of main islands (i.e., >5 Ma), as has been found for Hawaiian Drosophila and lobeliads. Expand
What are African monarchs (Aves, Passeriformes)? A phylogenetic analysis of mitochondrial genes.
TLDR
Molecular data corroborate ecological, ethological and morphological observations on the probable heterogeneity of Trochocercus and indicate that this genus is polyphyletic; two of its species are members of Monarchidae allied to Terpsiphone and Hypothymis; the others are more closely related to Elminia.

A case of rapid diversification in the neotropics: phylogenetic relationships among Cranioleuca spinetails (Aves, Furnariidae).
TLDR
It is shown that Cranioleuca represents a recent burst of speciation and that a set of species thought by Maijer and Fjeldså to form a natural group is in fact a paraphyletic assemblage which also includes humid forest species with different pigmentations and vocalizations. Expand
Phylogeny and historical aspects of the ecology of eastern Australian scrubwrens Sericornis spp. — evidence from mitochondrial DNA
TLDR
The strongly corroborated molecular phylogeny confirms and extends the previous (Christidis et al. 1988; Auk 105 > 616) reinterpretation of morphological and ecological shifts in the group, and suggests considerable plasticity and parallelism in the plumage characters previously used to associate species.

Contemporary extinctions and population declines of the monarchs (Pomarea spp.) in French Polynesia, South Pacific
TLDR
Four species of monarchs (Pomarea spp.) presently inhabit French Polynesia, one on Tahiti and three on the Marquesas Islands, and intensive field surveys conducted between 1998 and 2000 reveal that four subspecies are now extinct. Expand
Phylogeography of the Eurasian Willow Tit (Parus montanus) based on DNA sequences of the mitochondrial cytochrome b gene.
TLDR
The phylogeographic relationships of the trans-Palearctic Willow Tit assemblage were studied and suggest that the mono-frequency song type may be ancestral and was retained over a long evolutionary time in certain populations, but was altered or camouflaged by learning processes in others. Expand

A phylogeny reconstructed from nucleotide sequences agrees with one based on song and some morphological characters in identifying P. brehmii as the oldest branch within the chiffchaff group, while the position of P. canariensis with respect to these two clades is uncertain. Expand
