Molecular evidence of the taxonomic status of western Mexican populations of Pliaethornis longirostris (Aves: Trochilidae).


Species diversity is largely underestimated by current taxonomy, precluding a precise understanding of evolutionary processes. Genetic data have increased our understanding of that cryptic diversity, and multilocus studies are now desirable. In this study, we used mitochondrial and nuclear DNA sequences to evaluate the taxonomic status of the western Mexico… (More)
