The great hornbill (Buceros bicornis) and the rhinoceros hornbill (B. rhinoceros) are among the largest Asian hornbill species and they overlap in parts of their ranges. These two species resemble each other in appearance and breeding habits and are sister taxa. In 2004 and 2008, two occurrences of mating in the wild between a male rhinoceros hornbill and a female great hornbill were discovered in the forests of Budo Mountain, southern Thailand. These mated pairs each successfully raised a…

Sex beyond species: the first genetically analyzed case of intergeneric fertile hybridization in pinnipeds

Morphological and genetic results confirm de hybrid nature of the female‐pup pair and suggest feeding habits may be a trait transmitted maternally, leading to consider broader issues regarding hybridization as an evolutionary innovation phenomenon.

A phylogeny of frugivorous hornbills linked to the evolution of Indian plants within Asian rainforests

A dated phylogeny of hornbills was constructed using mitochondrial DNA sequences of the cytochrome b gene and discovered that all clades leading to frugivorous Hornbills originated in the mid‐Eocene ∼48 Ma, which coincided with a remarkable floral invasion of Asian rainforests from the Indian microcontinent.

Slow rate of evolution in the mitochondrial control region of gulls (Aves: Laridae).

The unusually slow rate of evolution of control region part III of the gulls could thus be partly explained by the existence of secondary structures in domain III of these species.

Mitochondrial heteroplasmy and paternal leakage in natural populations of Silene vulgaris, a gynodioecious plant.

It is shown that the average paternal contribution during paternal leakage is about 12%.

Metaves, Mirandornithes, Strisores and other novelties – a critical review of the higher‐level phylogeny of neornithine birds

Molecular studies congruently recover some clades that were not recognized by morphologists before and are outlined in the present review, and to ease future discussions the terms Picocoraciae and Aequornithes are introduced.

Speciation and hybridization in island birds

The process of speciation in birds can be inferred from the pattern of diversification on islands, especially in archipelagos. The basic model is one of initial differentiation of allopatric

Paternal leakage of mitochondrial DNA in the great tit (Parus major).

Evidence is presented that paternal leakage occurs in a bird, the great tit Parus major, in the middle Amur Valley in far-eastern Siberia, where a bird that possessed the very distinct haplotypes of the two groups is found.

Mitochondrial DNA heteroplasmy in wheat, Aegilops and their nucleus-cytoplasm hybrids.

The different copy stoichiometry suggests differential amplification of the heteroplasmic copies among the hybrids and the parental lines, and suggests that the observed mtDNA heteroplasmy is due to paternal contribution of mtDNA.

Heteroplasmy and evidence for recombination in the mitochondrial control region of the flatfish Platichthys flesus.

The general assumption that mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA) does not undergo recombination has been challenged recently in invertebrates. Here we present the first direct evidence for recombination in the

Hybridization and Male Parental Investment in Birds

Hybridization within genera occurs more frequently in avian families and subfamilies where there is considerable male parental investment, less frequently in families with moderate levels of male
