Species in the genus Tangara are distributed throughout the New World tropics and vary in their morphology, behavior, and ecology. We used data from the cytochrome b and ND 2 genes to provide the first phylogenetic perspective on the evolution of this diversity. Reconstructions based on parsimony, maximum likelihood, and Bayesian approaches were largely congruent. The genus is monophyletic and consists of two main clades. Within these clades, DNA sequence data confirm the monophyly of most… CONTINUE READING
