The family Rhinocryptidae comprises an assemblage of 12 genera and 55 species confined to the Neotropical region. Here we present the first morphology-based phylogenetic study of the Rhinocryptidae, using 90 anatomical characters (62 osteological, 28 syringeal) scored for all genera of the family and representatives of all families of the infraorder Furnariides. Parsimony analysis of this dataset recovered 7428 equally most-parsimonious trees. The strict consensus of those trees was completely… 

Phylogenetic revision of the floricolous longhorn beetle genus Strangalidium Giesbert (Coleoptera: Cerambycidae)

This study is the first that integrates characters codified with geometric morphometric methods for inferring the phylogeny of any group of Cerambycidae, and Strangalidium is recovered as paraphyletic, forming a clade with Strangalia Dejean.

Systematics, biogeography, and diversification of Scytalopus tapaculos (Rhinocryptidae), an enigmatic radiation of Neotropical montane birds

It is found that Scytalopus is a monophyletic group sister to Eugralla, and consists of three main clades roughly distributed in (1) the Southern Andes, (2) eastern Brazil, and (3) the Tropical Andes and Central America.

The phylogenetic significance of the morphology of the syrinx, hyoid and larynx, of the southern cassowary, Casuarius casuarius (Aves, Palaeognathae)

Syrinx, hyoid and larynx characters of palaeognaths display greater concordance with molecular trees than do other morphological traits, and might therefore be less prone to homoplasy related to flightlessness and gigantism, compared to typical morphological character traits emphasised in previous phylogenetic studies.

Reflections on the Phylogenetic Position and Generic Status of Abbott's Booby 'Papasula abbotti' (Aves, Sulidae)

There is a considerable degree of congruence among the examined cladograms, the main conflict being the position of Abbott's Booby, and it is proposed that in any cladistic-based classification the name 'Sula abbotti' be placed at the level at which their relationships are more surely determined.

Comparative Cladistics: Fossils, Morphological Data Partitions and Lost Branches in the Fossil Tree of Life

In this thesis, a wide range of cladistic analysis of fossil and extant taxa representing a diverse array of phylogenetic groups is gathered and a modification to a rarely used measure of homoplasy is devised that will hopefully encourage its wider usage.

Sampling diverse characters improves phylogenies: Craniodental and postcranial characters of vertebrates often imply different trees

It is concluded that trees inferred largely from either craniodental or postcranial characters in isolation may differ significantly from those that would result from a more holistic approach.

Systematics, biogeography, and diversification of Scytalopus tapaculos (Rhinocryptidae), an enigmatic radiation of Neotropical montane birds

It is found that Scytalopus is a monophyletic group sister to Eugralla and consists of 3 main clades roughly distributed in (1) the Southern Andes, (2) eastern Brazil, and (3) the Tropical Andes and Central America.

Taxonomic review of the rhinocryptid genus Eleoscytalopus (I): Bahia Tapaculo (E. psychopompus) is vocally and morphologically distinct from White-breasted Tapaculo (E. indigoticus)

Analysis of plumage, morphometrics, and vocalizations of both Bahia and White-breasted tapaculos found differences of the same or greater magnitude than those found between several sister taxa accepted as biological species in the family Rhinocryptidae, supporting biological species status for the Bahia Tapaculo.

Taxonomy of “Mouse-colored Tapaculos” (II): An endangered new species from the montane Atlantic Forest of southern Bahia, Brazil (Passeriformes: Rhinocryptidae: Scytalopus)

Morphological and bioacoustic analyses of 11 specimens and several tape recordings indicated that these populations of tapaculos from the mountains of southeastern Bahia state, Brazil, represent a new species, in agreement with a previous molecular phylogenetic study.




A phylogenetic analysis of syringeal morphology and two osteological characters indicates that the broadbills (Eurylaimidae) are not monophyletic, but consist of four clades with successively closer relationships to the Madagascan asities (Philepittidae), and uses this phylogenetic hypothesis as a comparative framework in investigations of the biogeo- graphic history and evolutionary ecology of the group.

A phylogenetic study of the neotropical catfish family Cetopsidae (Osteichthyes, Ostariophysi, Siluriformes), with a new classification

A hypothesis on the phylogenetic relationships of the neotropical catfish family Cetopsidae is proposed on the basis of the parsimony analysis of 127 morphological characters and most of the species

A phylogenetic analysis of recent anseriform genera using morphological characters

--A phylogenetic analysis of all Recent genera of the Anseriformes using 120 morphological characters supports much of the current consensus regarding intraordinal relationships. I found that (1)

Monophyly and phylogeny of the Schiffornis group (Tyrannoidea)

Comparative analysis of the evolution of breeding systems in tyrannoids indicates that polygyny may have developed independently within the group, resulting in the emergence of a novel form a male advertisement behavior without conspicuous sexual dimorphism and a distinct type of spatial dispersion of male territories.

Composition and phylogenetic affinities of vangas (Vangidae, Oscines, Passeriformes) based on morphological characters

The comparative morphological analysis provides new arguments for the exclusion of several taxa traditionally or recently assigned to Vangidae such as Tylas Vanga, Crossleys Babbler and newtonias, and leads to the hypothesis that vangas sensu stricto, the Australasian woodswallows and the Australo-Papuan butcherbirds form a monophyletic group.

The osteology and phylogeny of the Hawaiian finch radiation (Fringillidae: Drepanidini), including extinct taxa

The monophyly and phylogeny of the adaptive radiation of Hawaiian finches were studied using parsimony analysis of comparative osteology and Templeton tests of alternative phylogenetic hypotheses, providing a framework for incorporating morphological and palaeontological information in evolutionary studies of the Drepanidini.

Phylogeny and phylogenetic classification of the antbirds, ovenbirds, woodcreepers, and allies (Aves: Passeriformes: infraorder Furnariides)

A phylogenetic analysis of the Furnariides sampling 124 genera supports the Melanopareidae and Grallariidae as distinct from the Rhinocryptidae and Formicariidae, respectively and erects new family‐group names for clades having high branch support across methods.

Morphological similarities between the Menurae and the Rhinocryptidae, relict passerine birds of the southern hemisphere

It is suggested that the Menurae and the Rhinocryptidae are among the most primitive of the Passeriformes and are representative of the ancestral stock that gave rise to the remainder of the passerines.
