—Conjoint mitochondrial phylogenetic trees for canaries Serinus spp. and goldfinches Carduelis spp. show several specific polytomies. Aims: Canaries and goldfinches seem to form a phylogenetic group separated from other Carduelini tribe radiations. The present study conjointly analyses for the first time the phylogenetic relationships among canaries (genus Serinus) and goldfinches (genus Carduelis), and others, and the particular case of citril finch (Serinus citrinella) which has been included… Expand

Phylogeography of crossbills, bullfinches, grosbeaks, and rosefinches
TLDR
Phylogenetic analyses consistently gave the same groups of finches and the calculated divergence times suggest that speciation of the studied species occurred between 14 and 3 million years ago (Miocene-Pliocene), appearing before the Passer, Carduelis, and Serinus genera. Expand
Rapid Radiation of Canaries (Genus Serinus)
TLDR
Mitochondrial cytochrome b DNA from 20 out of 37 extant canaries (genus Serinus) has been sequenced from living specimens photographed around the world and suggests a remarkably rapid radiation when compared to other passerine (songbird) genera radiations. Expand
Phylogeny and rapid Northern and Southern Hemisphere speciation of goldfinches during the Miocene and Pliocene Epochs
TLDR
Molecular comparison of most extant songbird species belonging to the genus Carduelis does not support the assertion that Pleistocene glaciations played a crucial role in the origin of extant diversity and distribution of Northern Hemisphere vertebrates, and a tentative classification for genuscarduelis species is suggested. Expand
Mitochondrial resolution of a deep branch in the genealogical tree for perching birds
TLDR
The mitochondrial tree shows broad concordance with that based on hybridization of nuclear DNA; however, parsimony and maximum likelihood methods suggest a close kinship between thrushes and Australian babblers, in agreement with the traditional morphological classification. Expand
The mtDNA sequence of the ostrich and the divergence between paleognathous and neognathous birds.
TLDR
Molecular dating of the divergence between the ostrich and the chicken indicates that these two avian lineages separated 80-90 MYA, and Phylogenetic analysis of complete cytochrome b genes of six avian orders showed that Passeriformes represent the earliest divergence among recent birds, contradicting the commonly accepted notion of a basal position of the Palaeognathae among recent Birds. Expand
Evolution of the cytochrome b gene of mammals.
TLDR
Comparisons of these cytochrome b sequences support current structure-function models for this membrane-spanning protein, which suggests that the outer surface which includes the Qo redox center is more constrained than the remainder of the molecule, namely, the transmembrane segments and the surface that protrudes into the mitochondrial matrix. Expand
Genetic differences among mainland and insular forms of the Citril Finch Serinus citrinella
TLDR
A genetic approach based on the sequences of a mitochondrial DNA fragment was used to estimate genetic distance separating several populations of the Citril Finch Serinus citrinella, suggesting keeping only one polytypic species which includes two distinct forms. Expand
Molecular divergence and phylogeny: rates and patterns of cytochrome b evolution in cranes.
TLDR
Analyses of complete cytochrome b sequences from all species of cranes reveal aspects of sequence evolution in the early stages of divergence, with Silent, third-position pyrimidine transitions being the dominant substitution type. Expand

TLDR
The polymerase chain reaction is used to amplify homologous segments of mtDNA from more than 100 animal species, including mammals, birds, amphibians, fishes, and some invertebrates, and the unexpectedly wide taxonomic utility of these primers offers opportunities for phylogenetic and population research.

Evaluation of the maximum likelihood estimate of the evolutionary tree topologies from DNA sequence data, and the branching order in hominoidea
TLDR
A new method for estimating the variance of the difference between log likelihood of different tree topologies is developed by expressing it explicitly in order to evaluate the maximum likelihood branching order among Hominoidea. Expand
