Abstract Phylogenetic relationships among birds of prey in the subfamily Buteoninae are not fully established but are of particular interest because the Buteoninae constitute one of the largest accipitrid subgroups and include multiple species of conservation concern. Genera previously included within the Buteoninae are Buteo, Leucopternis, Buteogallus, Harpyhaliaetus, Busarellus, Parabuteo, Geranoaetus, Geranospiza, Ictinia, Rostrhamus, Kaupifalco, and Butastur. We analyzed representatives… Expand
Chromosome Painting in Three Species of Buteoninae: A Cytogenetic Signature Reinforces the Monophyly of South American Species
Buteoninae (Falconiformes, Accipitridae) consist of the widely distributed genus Buteo, and several closely related species in a group called “sub-buteonine hawks”, such as Buteogallus, Parabuteo,Expand
A molecular phylogeny of the harriers (Circus, Accipitridae) indicate the role of long distance dispersal and migration in diversification.
TLDR
The phylogeny supports both the monophyly of Circus and polyphyly of the genus Accipiter, and proposes to recognise as separate, recently evolved species: C. spilonotus, C. maillardi and C. macrosceles. Expand
An Extinct Eagle (Aves: Accipitridae) from the Quaternary of Hispaniola
TLDR
Late Quaternary fossils of the hind limb (tibiotarsus, tarsometatarsus, hallux, pedal phalanges) of an extinct species of eagle from Hispaniola suggest the Hispaniolan eagle was 15–30% larger than the extant Golden Eagle. Expand
A new genus for the tiny hawk Accipiter superciliosus and semicollared hawk A. collaris (Aves: Accipitridae), with comments on the generic name for the crested goshawk A. trivirgatus and Sulawesi goshawk A. griseiceps
TLDR
A synonymy of the genus Accipiter is provided and a list of species currently included inAccipiter for which published molecular phylogenetic data are apparently lacking is provided. Expand
Discovery of a Novel Mtdna Sequence in the Eastern Buzzard (Buteo Japonicus) in Japan
TLDR
It is suggested that the novel sequence revealed in this study is a geographic variant that may represent the “true” Eastern Buzzard, and that the previously reported sequence is that of the Himalayan Buzzard. Expand
The complete mitochondrial genome of Japanese sparrowhawk (Accipiter gularis) and the phylogenetic relationships among some predatory birds
TLDR
The complete mtDNA of Japanese sparrowhawk was determined, and phylogenetic trees based on the complete mt DNA alignment of it and 36 other raptor species were estimated, to clarify raptor phylogenetics. Expand
Hybridisation between the Common Buzzard Buteo buteo buteo and the North African race of Long-legged Buzzard Buteo rufinus cirtensis in the Strait of Gibraltar: prelude or preclude to colonisation?
TLDR
It is reported that the first case of successful hybridisation between the African subspecies of the Long-legged Buzzard Buteo rufinus cirtensis and Common Buzzardbuteo buteobute buteos in a new contact zone in the Strait of Gibraltar (southern Spain) is reported. Expand
Complete mitochondrial genomes of five raptors and implications for the phylogenetic relationships between owls and nightjars
TLDR
The phylogenetic relationships demonstrated that Strigiformes and Caprimulgiformes are independent orders, and Aegothelidae is a family within Caprimundiformes, and Accipitriformes is an independent order, and Pandionidae and Sagittariidae are independent families. Expand
Genetic Structure and Diversity of Two Populations of the Eastern Buzzard (Buteo japonicus japonicus and B. j. toyoshimai) in Japan
TLDR
The phylogenetic analysis showed that BJJ and BJT have diverged into distinct clades, supporting the genetic differentiation between the subspecies and indicating that it is necessary to protect BJT to prevent the reduction in its genetic diversity. Expand
Scientific data laundering: Chimeric mitogenomes of a sparrowhawk and a nightjar covered-up by forged phylogenies
TLDR
It is shown that Japanese Sparrowhawk Accipiter gularis is a chimera of three species (a sparrowhawk, a buzzard and a dove), and that the published mitogenome of C. indicus is a Chimera of two owl species. Expand

Polyphyly of the hawk genera Leucopternis and Buteogallus (Aves, Accipitridae): multiple habitat shifts during the Neotropical buteonine diversification
TLDR
The polyphyly of Leucopternis, Buteogallus and Buteo establishes a lack of concordance of current Accipitridae taxonomy with the mtDNA phylogeny for the group, and points to the need for further phylogenetic analysis at all taxonomic levels in the family. Expand
Molecular phylogeny of the genus Buteo (Aves: Accipitridae) based on mitochondrial marker sequences.
TLDR
The PsiCR proved to be an efficient, neutral genetic marker sequence for phylogenetic analyses at the intrageneric level, especially suitable for analyses based on old tissues, where only short fragments can be obtained. Expand
Phylogeny, diversity, and classification of the Accipitridae based on DNA sequences of the RAG-1 exon
TLDR
DNA sequences from the large nuclear RAG-1 exon are used to investigate the phylogenetic relationships of the avian family Accipitridae and found strong support for a monophyletic clade comprising the secretarybird Sagittarius serpentarius, the osprey Pandion haliaetus, and the traditional accipitrids. Expand
Phylogeny of eagles, Old World vultures, and other Accipitridae based on nuclear and mitochondrial DNA.
TLDR
Monophyly of sea eagles and booted eagles was supported, however, harpy eagles (Harpiinae), snake eagles, and Old World vultures were found to be non-monophyletic, presenting an example of convergent evolution for specialized limb morphology enabling predation on cavity nesting species. Expand
Comparative evolution of the mitochondrial cytochrome b gene and nuclear beta-fibrinogen intron 7 in woodpeckers.
TLDR
This study sequenced intron 7 of the beta-fibrinogen gene and compared the phylogenetic signal and nucleotide substitution properties of this DNA sequence with that of mitochondrial-encoded cytochrome b from a previous study, suggesting that introns will be useful for phylogenetic studies of recently evolved groups. Expand
Partitioned Bayesian analyses, partition choice, and the phylogenetic relationships of scincid lizards.
TLDR
A criterion, based on the Bayes factor, for selecting among competing partitioning strategies is proposed and tested and it is demonstrated that how one partitions the data is shown to be a greater concern than simply the overall number of partitions. Expand
Systematics within Gyps vultures: a clade at risk
TLDR
Phylogenetic analyses and conservative estimates suggest the diversification of Gyps taxa to be within the past 6 million years, and molecular and morphological data provide strong support for considering the "Long-billed" Vulture to be comprised of two species. Expand
THE DISTRIBUTION OF FUSED PHALANGES OF THE INNER TOE IN THE ACCIPITRIDAE
TLDR
A comprehensive survey of the osteology of the bones of the inner toe in the Accipitridae was conducted in order to determine more precisely which taxa possess the fused condition of the phalanges. Expand
Primers for a PCR-based approach to mitochondrial genome sequencing in birds and other vertebrates.
TLDR
A PCR-based approach to sequencing complete mitochondrial genomes is described along with a set of 86 primers designed primarily for avian mitochondrial DNA, which should make available a wider variety of mitochondrial genes for studies based on smaller data sets. Expand
Estimation of the number of nucleotide substitutions in the control region of mitochondrial DNA in humans and chimpanzees.
TLDR
A new mathematical method for estimating the number of transitional and transversional substitutions per site, as well as the total number of nucleotide substitutions, suggested that the transition/transversion ratio for the entire control region was approximately 15 and nearly the same for the two species.
