The scaly-sided merganser (Mergus squamatus) is an endangered bird species on the IUCN Red List with the estimated global population of less than 2,500 individuals at present. In the present study, we studied the complete mitochondrial genome (mtDNA) and the phylogenetic of M. squamatus by PCR amplification and GenBank data. The genome was 16,595 bp in length and contained 37 genes (13 protein coding genes, two rRNAs, and 22 tRNAs) and a non-coding control region (D-loop). All protein-coding… 

The Complete Mitochondrial Genome of Bean Goose (Anser fabalis) and Implications for Anseriformes Taxonomy

TLDR
The complete mtDNA of Bean goose is determined, which is 16,688 bp long and contains 13 protein-coding genes, 2 rRNAs, 22 tRNAs and a control region, which supports the classification of them into four major branches: Anatinae, Anserinee, Dendrocygninae and Anseranatidae.

Complete mitochondrial genome of Yellow-browed warbler Phylloscopus inornatus inornatus (Passeriformes: Sylviidae)

TLDR
The complete mtDNA is a 16,875 bp circular molecule, containing 37 typical genes and an extra pseudo-control region, which differs from the standard gene order in birds, but similar to genus Sylvia and Acrocephalus, which has the remnant CR2 gene order.

Mitochondrial genome of the critically endangered Baer’s Pochard, Aythya baeri, and its phylogenetic relationship with other Anatidae species

TLDR
The mitochondrial genome of Baer’s Pochard (Aythya baeri) was sequence to support further phylogenetic and taxonomic studies and genetic conservation of Anatidae species and many structural and compositional similarities were discovered.

TLDR
Phylogenetic relationships demonstrate that Aix galericula and Tadorna ferruginea are in the same group, the Tadorninae lineage, based on analyses of complete mtDNAs and combined gene data.

Abstract The mitochondrial genome of Brown wood owl is a 16,308-bp circular molecule, which contains 37 typical mitochondrial genes (13 protein-coding genes, 2 rRNAs and 22 tRNAs) and a 741-bp A +

TLDR
The analyses indicated that the Anseriformes include the families Anseranatidae, Anhimidae, and Anatidae; Anatinae is composed of Aythyini, Anatini, Somaterini, and Mergini; and M serrator was sister to M. merganser and M. squamatus, and formed a closely evolvedMergini clade.

A new insight into the classification of dusky thrush complex: bearings on the phylogenetic relationships within the Turdidae

TLDR
The phylogenetic trees reconstructed by the concatenated nucleotide sequences of mtDNA genes (Cyt b, ND2 and COI) indicate the Dusky thrush complex cannot be divided into two species, but the relationships between Dusky Thrush subspecies still need additional study.

TLDR
The complete mitochondrial genome of a China endemic bird, Podoces hendersoni, was sequenced using La-PCR and conserved primer walking approaches and the secondary structures of rRNA were predicted.

Complete mitochondrial genome of Otis tarda (Gruiformes: Otididae) and phylogeny of Gruiformes inferred from mitochondrial DNA sequences

TLDR
The complete nucleotide sequence of mitochondrial genome of the Great bustard (Otis tarda) was determined by using polymerase chain reaction (PCR) method and showed that Otididae was a sister group to “core Gruiformes” and Charadriiformes with strong support in Bayesian analysis.

The complete sequence of the mitochondrial genome of Buteo buteo (Aves, Accipitridae) indicates an early split in the phylogeny of raptors.

TLDR
Phylogenetic analyses indicate an early split between Accipitridae and Falconidae, which can be assumed to have taken place in the late Cretaceous 65-83 MYA, according to molecular dating of other avian divergence times.

Complete mitochondrial genome sequence analysis of mallard and phylogeny of Anatini.

TLDR
The results support that domestic ducks origined from mallard and spot-billed duck and contributed to domestic duck evolution, and that the 13 species of Anatini were clustered in three major clades.

Molecular characterization and evolution of a duck mitochondrial genome

TLDR
Estimates of divergence for ribosomal RNAs and proteins based on total substitutions, transversions, and amino acid replacements show that all the duck/chicken values are lower than the corresponding mammal/mammal values.

Complete Mitochondrial Genome Sequence Analysis of Jianchang Duck

TLDR
The characteristics of the mtDNA of Jianchang duck appeared to be almost identical to those of the other birds of the Anseriformes known and a phylogenetic tree of 8 bird species based on the 13 protein coding genes was constructed by neighbor-joining analysis.

The complete mitochondrial genomes of the whistling duck (Dendrocygna javanica) and black swan (Cygnus atratus): dating evolutionary divergence in Galloanserae

TLDR
These results, which were compatible with estimates from fossil evidence, also imply that the origin of numerous genera in Anseriformes took place in the late Oligocene to early Miocene and underline the utility of whole mitochondrial genome sequences for the resolution of deep divergence.

[Complete sequence and gene organization of the Tibetan chicken mitochondrial genome].

TLDR
Phylogenetic trees based on the D-loop locus and the 13 protein coding genes by Neighbor-joining and Maximum Parsimony analysis indicated that the red junglefowl was the direct ancestor of Tibetan chicken and Tibetan chicken was closest to white leghorn and white plymouth rock, although the evolution of TibetanChicken appeared to be relatively independent from them.
