Abstract The systematics of the babblers (Timaliidae) and related members of the Old World insectivorous passerines have been particularly difficult. To clarify our understanding of this group, phylogenetic relationships were constructed using sequences of three mitochondrial genes (cytochrome b, rRNA 12S and 16S). The results indicated that several species traditionally placed among babblers, the shrike babblers (Pteruthius) and the Gray-chested Thrush Babbler (Kakamega poliothorax), are not… Expand
Molecular systematics and diversification of the Asian scimitar babblers (Timaliidae, Aves) based on mitochondrial and nuclear DNA sequences.
TLDR
Results of the molecular dating based on the conventional mitochondrial DNA divergence rate indicates that the diversification of these babblers is likely congruent with the historical climatic events, and proposes dividing the traditional genus Pomatorhinus into two morphologically and genetically diagnosable genera: PomATORhinus and Erythrogenys. Expand
A phylogenetic analysis of laughingthrushes (Timaliidae: Garrulax) and allies based on mitochondrial and nuclear DNA sequences
TLDR
A profile of the speciation history of laughingthrushes is developed, which suggests that the Hengduan Mountains might not be the centre of origin for these birds as previously suggested. Expand
DNA barcoding and phylogenetic relationships in Timaliidae.
TLDR
DNA barcoding is an effective molecular tool for Timaliidae species identification and phylogenetic inference and indicates that some currently recognized babbler genera might not be monophyletic, with the COI gene data supporting the hypothesis of polyphyly for Garrulax, Alcippe, and Minla. Expand
Phylogeny and biogeography of the genus Illadopsis (Passeriformes: Timaliidae) reveal the complexity of diversification of some African taxa
TLDR
The dating analyses, using a Bayesian relaxed-clock method, reveal that most splits in Illadopsis occurred synchronously around the Plio-Pleistocene transition, suggesting that some diversification events in African forest taxa took place before the onset of the large-amplitude climatic cycles of the Pleistocene epoch. Expand
Comprehensive phylogeny of the laughingthrushes and allies (Aves, Leiothrichidae) and a proposal for a revised taxonomy
TLDR
The time estimates suggest that the early diversification of the Leiothrichidae occurred in the mid‐Miocene, a period that corresponds to the diversificationof many passerine groups in Asia. Expand
Phylogeny and biogeography of the core babblers (Aves: Timaliidae).
TLDR
Although phylogenetic analysis required extensive adjustment of program settings, it ultimately produced a well-resolved phylogeny for the Timaliidae, which provided strong support for major subclades within the family but extensive paraphyly of genera. Expand
A multilocus molecular phylogeny for the avian genus Liocichla (Passeriformes: Leiothrichidae: Liocichla)
TLDR
This study supports an origin of the Liocichla occurring sometime prior to the Miocene–Pliocene boundary, a period of significant climatic upheaval in Asia. Expand
Phylogeny and classification of the avian superfamily Sylvioidea.
TLDR
This is the first taxon-dense analysis of the Sylvioidea based on sequence data (nuclear myoglobin intron II and mitochondrial cytochrome b gene), which investigates the interrelationships among the four "sylvioid" clades, as well as the relationships within the largest of these clades. Expand
Phylogeny of babblers (Aves, Passeriformes): major lineages, family limits and classification
TLDR
This study uses five molecular regions to estimate the relationships among a large proportion of genera traditionally placed in Timaliidae, finding good support for five main clades within this radiation, and proposes a new classification of babblers, dividing the babblers into the families Sylviidae and TimalIidae. Expand
Old World Shrike-babblers (Pteruthius) belong with New World Vireos (Vireonidae).
TLDR
Recently, Cibois (2003) produced the first phylogeny of the Timaliidae and discovered that Pteruthius did not group with other babblers—as was expected on the basis of previous classifications—but rather with corvoid outgroups. Expand

Molecular systematics of the Malagasy babblers (Passeriformes: timaliidae) and warblers (Passeriformes: sylviidae), based on cytochrome b and 16S rRNA sequences.
TLDR
These results show that the Timaliidae did not disperse to Madagascar, Rather, the island has been colonized, independently, by at least two clades of warblers, probably originating from Africa, where the Sylviidae radiation has been the most extensive. Expand
Molecular phylogenetics of babblers (Timaliidae): revaluation of the genera Yuhina and Stachyris
TLDR
This study of the systematics and phylogeny of the Timaliidae used molecular markers to clarify the evolution of this complex group of Old World insectivorous passerines. Expand
Mitochondrial phylogeny of the genus Regulus and implications on the evolution of breeding behavior in sylvioid songbirds.
TLDR
The phylogenetic analysis grouped the kinglets as the sister group of a clade comprising Parus and Phylloscopus and including the genera Sylvia, Aegithalos, and Leptopoecile, which suggested that hole nesting in the Paridae is likely to have originated secondarily. Expand
THE RELATIONSHIPS OF THE WRENTIT AS INDICATED BY DNA-DNA HYBRIDIZATION
TLDR
DNA-DNA hy- bridization comparisons between the homologous nucleotide sequences of the single-copy DNAs of the Wrentit and other passerines indicate that Chamaea is most closely related to the babblers and the Old World warblers, and that the latter two groups are ecotypes of a single, varied, monophyletic assemblage.

The improved picture of oscine phylogeny presented here permits a more rigorous historical analysis of convergence, adaptation, phylogenetic constraint, and other evolutionary phenomena. Expand
PHYLOGENETIC RELATIONSHIPS OF MICRONESIAN WHITE-EYES BASED ON MITOCHONDRIAL SEQUENCE DATA
TLDR
Using mitochondrial sequence data, phylogenetic relationships and genetic divergence among selected species of white-eyes (Zosteropidae) are estimated and strongly contradict the traditional classification of Cleptornis as a honeyeater (family Meliphagidae). Expand
AN ENDEMIC RADIATION OF MALAGASY SONGBIRDS IS REVEALED BY MITOCHONDRIAL DNA SEQUENCE DATA

The endemic Malagasy songbird clade rivals other island radiations, including the vangas of Madagascar and the finches of the Galapagos, in ecological diversity. Expand
A phylogenetic hypothesis for passerine birds: taxonomic and biogeographic implications of an analysis of nuclear DNA sequence data
TLDR
The hypothesis of relationships presented here suggests that the oscine passerines arose on the Australian continental plate while it was isolated by oceanic barriers and that a major northern radiation of oscines originated subsequent to dispersal from the south. Expand
Molecular systematics, zoogeography, and evolutionary ecology of the atlantic parrotfish genus Sparisoma.
TLDR
The molecular data support the view that Sparisoma originated approximately 14-35 million years ago, probably in the tropical western Atlantic, off Brazil; there have been at least four discrete bouts of cladogenesis within the genus, with the most recent one involving four events in both the east and the west Atlantic and across the Atlantic.

Searching for the closest living relative(s) of tetrapods through evolutionary analyses of mitochondrial and nuclear data.
TLDR
Differences in rate of evolution of the different mitochondrial genes favored a lungfish + coelacanth clade, while rapid radiation of the lineages back in the Devonian, rather than base compositional biases among taxa seem to be directly responsible for the remaining uncertainty in accepting one of the two alternate hypotheses.
