-The phylogeny of the subfamily Hirundininae was estimated by hybridizing single-copy nuclear DNAs of 21 swallow species, representing 19 former and current genera, and a Tufted Titmouse (Parus bicolor) as outgroup. The phylogeny, which was unusually well resolved, consisted of three fundamental clades: Hirundo and allies, core martins, and African sawwings. The clade of Hirundo and allies comprised Hirundo rustica, Ptyonoprogne fuligula, Delichon urbica, Cecropis semirufa, Petrochelidon… Expand

Phylogeny of swallows (Aves: Hirundinidae) estimated from nuclear and mitochondrial DNA sequences.
The phylogeny of swallows was reconstructed by comparing segments of three genes, nuclear beta-fibrinogen intron 7 (betafib7), mitochondrial cytochrome b (cytb), and mitochondrial ND2, in a varietyExpand
PHYLOGENY OF TITMICE (PARIDAE): II. SPECIES RELATIONSHIPS BASED ON SEQUENCES OF THE MITOCHONDRIAL CYTOCHROME-B GENE
Abstract We present a phylogenetic hypothesis for 40 species in the bird family Paridae, based on comparisons of nucleotide sequences of the mitochondrial cytochrome-b gene. Parids, including titsExpand
Phylogeny of the tree swallow genus, Tachycineta (Aves: Hirundinidae), by Bayesian analysis of mitochondrial DNA sequences.
TLDR
The phylogeny of the nine Tachycineta species was reconstructed by comparing DNA sequences of six mitochondrial genes and one interesting biogeographic discovery was the close relationship between Caribbean and western North American taxa. Expand
DNA hybridization evidence for the principal lineages of hummingbirds (Aves:Trochilidae).
TLDR
A complete matrix of DNA hybridization distances among 26 hummingbirds and an outgroup swift was generated to determine the principal hummingbird lineages and reveal some basic aspects of hummingbird ecologic and morphologic evolution. Expand
MOLECULAR PHYLOGENY OF JACANAS AND ITS IMPLICATIONS FOR MORPHOLOGIC AND BIOGEOGRAPHIC EVOLUTION
TLDR
Compared sequences of mitochondrial cytochrome-b and ND5 genes in a phylogenetic analysis of seven species of jacanas postulate that this biogeographic pattern results from the extinction of intervening African and Asian taxa, respectively. Expand
Complete mitochondrial genomes provide current refined phylogenomic hypotheses for relationships among ten Hirundo species
TLDR
This study reports the complete, annotated mitochondrial genomes for 25 individuals from 10 of the 14 extant Hirundo species, representing the largest Hirundo mitochondrial phylogeny to date, and could serve as a vital tool for other studies focusing on the evolution of the Hirundo genus. Expand
DNA Sequence assessment of phylogenetic relationships among New World martins (Hirundinidae: Progne)
TLDR
The phylogeny of Progne was estimated by analyzing mitochondrial cytochrome b DNA sequences of 27 individuals of eight of the nine species (10 subspecies) and nuclear β-fibrinogen intron 7 sequences of 20 individuals of six species (8 subspecies). Expand
Phylogeny of the genus Hirundo and the Barn Swallow subspecies complex.
The cosmopolitan Barn Swallow complex (Hirundo rustica and related Hirundo species) provides a model system for studies of mate choice, sexual selection, and related topics in behavioral ecology, butExpand
Dutch Avifaunal List: Taxonomic Changes in 2004–2008
TLDR
This report summarizes decisions made by the Commissie Systematiek Nederlandse Avifauna (CSNA) between Jan 2004 and Dec 2008 on the taxonomy of species and higher taxa on the Dutch List. Expand
A Reconsideration of Songbird Phylogeny, with Emphasis on the Evolution of Titmice and their Sylvioid Relatives
TLDR
The improved picture of oscine phylogeny presented here permits a more rigorous historical analysis of convergence, adaptation, phylogenetic constraint, and other evolutionary phenomena. Expand

TLDR
The results indicate that the swallows shared a most recent common ancestor with the sylviine-timaliine cluster, and that the divergence probably occurred ca. Expand
Phylogeny of Herons Estimated from DNA-DNA Hybridization Data
TLDR
DNADNA hybridization was used to develop a hypothesis of heron phylogeny without having to interpret tracked morphological or behavioral characters, and it was found that the distinction between night and day herons is primarily adaptive, not genealogical. Expand
DNA-DNA Hybridization Evidence of Phylogenetic Relationships among Major Lineages of Parus
TLDR
DNA-DNA hybrids were formed among 2 outgroups and 12 taxa of titmice and chickadees to estimate the genealogical relationships of the main Parus lineages and provide historical insight into patterns of tit behavior. Expand
Systematics and nomenclature of the Andean Swallow, Petrochelidon' andecola
TLDR
The Andean Swallow is a relatively little-known species inhabiting the Puna zone of the Andes of Peru, northern Chile, and Bolivia, and possibly northwestern Argentina, and its relationships debated. Expand
DNA hybridization as a guide to phylogeny: Relations of the Hominoidea
TLDR
The Sibley-Ahlquist study does not provide documentation or controls adequate to establish a secure linkage between Pan and Homo to the exclusion of Gorilla, and is concluded that humans and chimpanzees are more closely related than chimpanzees and gorillas. Expand
Rates of single-copy DNA evolution in phalangeriform marsupials.
DNA/DNA hybridization was used to investigate the relationships of taxa representing the phalangeriform marsupial families Acrobatidae, Burramyidae, Macropodidae, Petauridae, Phalangeridae, andExpand
Mitochondrial resolution of a deep branch in the genealogical tree for perching birds
TLDR
The mitochondrial tree shows broad concordance with that based on hybridization of nuclear DNA; however, parsimony and maximum likelihood methods suggest a close kinship between thrushes and Australian babblers, in agreement with the traditional morphological classification. Expand

TLDR
It is inferred that mud nests have increased in complexity during evolution from simple mud cups to fully enclosed retort-shaped nests, and this increased complexity appears to have been the critical precursor for the evolution of high-density colonial mud-nesters. Expand
Interspecific brood parasitism in blackbirds (Icterinae): a phylogenetic perspective.
TLDR
Cladistic analysis of the sequence data indicates that brood parasitism evolved a single time within the New World blackbirds (Icterinae), with host-specificity representing the derived condition. Expand

TLDR
DNA-DNA hybridization was used to discover the extent of single-copy DNA similarity among 13 species of herons and one ibis, and the existence of different rates of DNA evolution in different heron lineages was established. Expand
