ABSTRACT. We estimated phylogenetic relationships among all 15 extant species of cranes in the gruiform family Gruidae from complete sequences of their mitochondrial genomes. The gene order of crane mitochondrial genomes corresponds to that of the chicken and present few structural novelties compared with previously described birds. Sequences of the control region, particularly domains I and III, are highly divergent among species and include tandem repeats, duplications, and numerous indels… 
Testing the utility of mitochondrial cytochrome oxidase subunit 1 sequences for phylogenetic estimates of relationships between crane (Grus) species.
TLDR
Reconstruction of the molecular phylogenetic tree can be helpful for classification and that CO1 sequences are suitable for studying the molecular evolution of cranes are concluded.
Two mitogenomes in Gruiformes (Amaurornis akool/A. phoenicurus) and the phylogenetic placement of Rallidae
TLDR
The phylogenetic analyses provided solid evidence for the phylogenetic placement of Rallidae and the evolutionary relationships among different genus within this family and the mitogenome data presented here provide useful information for further molecular systematic investigations on Gruiformes as well as conservation biology research of these species.
Phylogeography, Species Limits, Phylogeny, and Classification of the Turacos (Aves: Musophagidae) Based on Mitochondrial and Nuclear DNA Sequences
TLDR
Analysis of genetic and morphological variation revealed substantial and unexpected geographic diversity within the Musophagidae, and recognizes 33 species-level taxa that represent the appropriate units for phylogenetic and biogeographic analyses (phylogenetic species).
Complete mitochondrial genome of Porzana fusca and Porzana pusilla and phylogenetic relationship of 16 Rallidae species
TLDR
Based on the concatenated nucleotide sequences of the complete mitochondrial DNA genes of 16 Rallidae species, reconstruction of phylogenetic trees and analysis of the molecular clock of Porzana fusca and P. pusilla indicated that these species from a sister group, which in turn are sister group to Rallina eurizonoides.
The mitochondrial genome of the Cinnamon Bittern, Ixobrychus cinnamomeus (Pelecaniformes: Ardeidae): sequence, structure and phylogenetic analysis
TLDR
The complete mitochondrial genome of I. cinnamomeus was determined and the monophyly of Ciconiidae, Ardeidae and Threskiornithidae were confirmed, however, the monophilia of traditional Cicon iiformes and Pelecaniformes failed to be recovered.
Mitochondrial Genome Structures and Phylogenetic Analyses of Two Tropical Characidae Fishes
TLDR
Determining the mitogenomes of H. erythrozonus and H. amandae improves the understanding of the phylogeny and evolution of fish species and provides a phylogenetic basis for improved classification of the family Characidae.
Phylogeny and evolution of Cervidae based on complete mitochondrial genomes.
TLDR
It is concluded that the evolutionary structure of the family Cervidae can be reconstructed by phylogenetic analysis based on whole mitochondrial genomes; this method could be used broadly in phylogenetic evolutionary analysis of animal taxa.
Complete mitochondrial genomes reveal phylogeny relationship and evolutionary history of the family Felidae.
TLDR
The evolution of Felidae was reconstructed by phylogenetic analysis based on mitochondrial genome sequences, and the described method may be broadly applicable for phylogenetic analyses of anima taxa.
The complete mitochondrial genome sequence of the black-capped capuchin (Cebus apella)
TLDR
This work provides a framework for the use of complete mitogenome information in phylogenetic analyses of the Platyrrhini and primates in general and agreed with the most recent molecular phylogenetic investigations on primates.

PHYLOGENY OF CRANES (GRUIFORMES: GRUIDAE) BASED ON CYTOCHROME-B DNA SEQUENCES
TLDR
DNA sequences spanning 1,042 nucleotide bases of the mitochondrial cytochrome-b gene are reported for all 15 species and selected subspecies of cranes and an outgroup, the Limpkin, to suggest a rapid evolutionary diversification of these lineages.
MITOCHONDRIAL DNA SEQUENCE VARIATION AMONG THE SUBSPECIES OF SARUS CRANE (GRUS ANTIGONE)
TLDR
Estimated sequence divergence times, neutral coalescent times, and data on the Quaternary geology of Australasia suggest that Sarus Cranes colonized Australia during the late Pleistocene.
A phylogenetic analysis of the Gruiformes (Aves) based on morphological characters, with an emphasis on the rails (Rallidae).
TLDR
In the species–level analysis of modern Grues, special efforts were made to limit the analytical impacts of homoplasy related to flightlessness in a number of rallid lineages, and relationships among ‘crakes’ remain poorly resolved.
Phylogenetic relationships among cranes (Gruiformes: Gruidae) based on DNA hybridization
TLDR
A DNA-DNA hybridization method was used to generate more than 1,200 pairwise comparisons among species of the family Gruidae (cranes) and an outgroup Limpkin (Aramidae) and support the traditional view that crowned cranes (Balearica) are the most ancient lineage of extant gruids.
Mitochondrial DNA Relationships Within the Sarus Crane Species Group (Gruiformes: Gruidae)
TLDR
Phylogenetic analysis of mtDNA sequences demonstrates that the Brolga and Whitenaped Crane haplotypes are most closely related and genetic divergences among haplotypes suggest that dispersal of ancestral Brolgas to Australia probably occurred in the early Pleistocene.
Interordinal relationships of birds and other reptiles based on whole mitochondrial genomes.
TLDR
Support is found for a sister relationship between turtles and a bird/crocodilian clade, and for rejecting both the Haemothermia hypothesis and the placement of turtles as basal within the phylogenetic tree for amniote animals.
Analyses of mitochondrial DNA nest ratite birds within the Neognathae: supporting a neotenous origin of ratite morphological characters
TLDR
The findings suggest that the morphological characteristics of the ratite species are secondarily acquired, probably through neoteny and that the ratites are descendants of flying, neognathous ancestors.
Variation of Mitochondrial Control Region Sequences in Three Crane Species, the Red-Crowned Crane Grus japonensis, the Common Crane G. grus and the Hooded Crane G. monacha
TLDR
Although the two studied populations shared no common haplotypes, they are likely to belong to a common lineage because of no independent branch of each population on the parsimony network and neighbor-joining tree.
