Von Max Stolpe. Bei meinen Untersuehungen tiber die hintere Extremit~t der VgSgel fiel mir auf, dal3 Colymbus und Podiceps im Bauplan der hinteren Gliedmal3en trotz m~neI~er Uebereinstimmung dooh grundlegende Unterschiede aufweisen. Da fiir micl~ damats nur physiologiseh-anatomische m~d nieht anatomisch-morphologische Gesichtspunkte mM3gebend waren~ unterliel3 ich es, diese Unterschiede einer niiheren Betrachtung zu unterziehen und systematisch auszuwerten. Angeregt dnrch Herrn Prof. Dr. S~I~s… 
Notes on the hindlimb myology and syndesmology of the Mesozoic toothed bird Hesperornis regalis (Aves: Hesperornithiformes)
The intertarsal joint of Hesperornis possessed a high degree of rotational freedom, which resembled that of loons, showing a loon-like manner of tarsometatarsal movements.
The Eocene Juncitarsus – its phylogenetic position and significance for the evolution and higher-level affinities of flamingos and grebes
The osteology of JunCitarsus suggests that swimming adaptations evolved in the stem lineage of this latter clade after the divergence of Juncitarsus, and its position as sister group of the clade (Phoenicopteriformes + Podicipediformes) is affirmed.
This work serves as a compendium of anatomical resources upon which a companion phylogenetic analysis of Aves and related Theropoda (Avialae) was based and summarized, to the extent feasible, previously published characters for which inclusion in the present work was judged to be unreliable or lacking sufficient clarity.
Comparative anatomy of the intertarsal joint in extant and fossil birds: inferences for the locomotion of Hesperornis regalis (Hesperornithiformes) and Emeus crassus (Dinornithiformes)
Reconstruction of the soft tissues involved in the mechanism of intertarsal joint stabilization in two species of extinct birds allowed insights into their locomotion.
A species-level phylogeny of the Cretaceous Hesperornithiformes (Aves: Ornithuromorpha): implications for body size evolution amongst the earliest diving birds
The results of this study support the monophyly of the Hesperornithiformes, which is recovered as the sister clade to the avian crown group, Neornithes, who are monophyletic while the Baptornithidae are polyphyletic.
Higher-order phylogeny of modern birds (Theropoda, Aves: Neornithes) based on comparative anatomy. II. Analysis and discussion
A phylogenetic (cladistic) analysis of 150 taxa of Neornithes, including exemplars from all non-passeriform families, and subordinal representatives of Passeriformes, confirmed the topology among outgroup Theropoda and achieved robust resolution at virtually all levels of the NeornIthes.
Grebes and flamingos: standards of evidence, adjudication of disputes, and societal politics in avian systematics
Proper procedures for rational synthesis of evidence are needed for progress during this challenging but promising period of diversified phylogenetics, without which disputes will be dominated increasingly by polarized, intransigent prejudice regarding methods and data.

The complete mitochondrial genome sequence of the little grebe (Tachybaptus ruficollis)
The complete mitochondrial genome of little grebe is sequenced, and the phylogenetic position of this order is explored with mitogenome sequences of 21 species from ten families in seven orders, supporting the closest relationship between Podicipediformes and Phoenicopteriformes.
Morphometric comparison of the Hesperornithiformes and modern diving birds
Abstract The Cretaceous Hesperornithiformes are an extinct group of aquatic birds long recognized to have practiced foot-propelled diving. This specialization is seen today in a number of modern
