The wrens (Aves: Troglodytidae) are a group of primarily New World insectivorous birds, the monophyly of which has long been recognized, but whose intergeneric relationships are essentially unknown. [...] Key Method In order to test the monophyly of the group, and to attempt to resolve relationships among genera within it, sequences from the mitochondrial cytochrome b gene and the fourth intron of the nuclear beta-fibrinogen gene were obtained from nearly all genera of wrens, from their relatives as suggested…Expand
Phylogeny of the caniform carnivora: evidence from multiple genes
TLDR
Combined analyses of four nuclear and one mt genes recover a branching order in which almost all nodes were strongly supported, and provide evidence in favor of Ailurus fulgens as the closest taxon to the procyonid-mustelid clade. Expand
Molecular Phylogenetics of the Wrens and Allies (Passeriformes: Certhioidea), with Comments on the Relationships of Ferminia
TLDR
The inferred relationships among certhioids and wrens support an Old World origin for these lineages, with dispersal of the New World clade in the mid-Miocene, suggesting expansion and early diversification of the lineage through North America. Expand
Phylogenetic relationships within Passerida (Aves: Passeriformes): a review and a new molecular phylogeny based on three nuclear intron markers.
TLDR
The current knowledge of the phylogenetic relationships within Passerida is reviewed and a new phylogeny based on three nuclear introns (myoglobin intron 2, ornithine decarboxylase introns 6 and 7, as well as beta-fibrinogen intron 5) is presented. Expand
A comprehensive molecular phylogeny of the starlings (Aves: Sturnidae) and mockingbirds (Aves: Mimidae): congruent mtDNA and nuclear trees for a cosmopolitan avian radiation.
TLDR
A comprehensive phylogeny for the avian families Sturnidae and Mimidae is generated to explore patterns of morphological and behavioral diversification and confirms that Buphagus should not be included in the Sturn family, and identifies many genera that are not monophyletic. Expand
Multilocus phylogeny of the avian family Alaudidae (larks) reveals complex morphological evolution, non-monophyletic genera and hidden species diversity.
TLDR
The present study proposes a revised generic classification of the Alaudidae, commenting on the extraordinary morphological adaptability in larks, which has resulted in numerous examples of parallel evolution. Expand
Further Resolution of the Rapid Radiation of Saxifragales (Angiosperms, Eudicots) Supported by Mixed-Model Bayesian Analysis
Abstract Recent phylogenetic analyses of Saxifragales, based on DNA sequences of five plastid and nuclear ribosomal genes under parsimony and likelihood criteria, failed to resolve the branchingExpand
Phylogenetics of wigeons and allies (Anatidae: Anas): the importance of sampling multiple loci and multiple individuals.
TLDR
The nuclear CHD tree and the mtDNA tree were more congruent with coding regions of mtDNA than they were with morphology, which probably was a result of interspecific hybridization. Expand
Molecular support for a rapid cladogenesis of the woodpecker clade Malarpicini, with further insights into the genus Picus (Piciformes: Picinae).
TLDR
The results suggest that the low level of basal resolution in Malarpicini is attributable to multiple cladogenetic events in a short period of time rather than insufficient character sampling, supported by the observation of nucleotide insertion-deletions that support mutually exclusive phylogenetic hypotheses in different gene trees. Expand
Nuclear and mitochondrial sequence data reveal the major lineages of starlings, mynas and related taxa.
TLDR
The congruence between the age of major clades, estimated by NPRS, and palaeoclimatic data present evidence for the role of climatic changes in shaping present day distribution of the Sturnidae group. Expand
Species tree inference in a recent radiation of orioles (Genus Icterus): multiple markers and methods reveal cytonuclear discordance in the northern oriole group.
TLDR
It is demonstrated that in spite of low variability and incomplete lineage sorting, multiple nuclear loci can produce largely congruent phylogenies based on multiple species tree methods, even for very closely-related species. Expand

Combined molecular phylogenetic analysis of the Orthoptera (Arthropoda, Insecta) and implications for their higher systematics.
TLDR
Reconstructing phylogenies under the minimum evolution and maximum likelihood optimality criteria, and examining monophyly of the major orthopteran groups, suggests that phylogeny reconstruction under the maximum likelihood criteria is the most discriminating approach for the combined sequences. Expand
Recovering phylogenetic signal from DNA sequences: relationships within the corvine assemblage (class aves) as inferred from complete sequences of the mitochondrial DNA cytochrome-b gene.
TLDR
Phylogenetic analysis of cytochrome-b sequences and cranial osteological characters for nine genera of corvine passerine birds supports the hypothesis that the two major groups of birds of paradise constitute a monophyletic group and that their postulated sister group is the Corvidae. 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
Interaction of process partitions in phylogenetic analysis: an example from the swallowtail butterfly genus Papilio.
TLDR
Although the mitochondrial and nuclear data were not significantly incongruent, homoplasy in the fast-evolving mitochondrial data confounded the resolution of basal relationships in the combined unweighted parsimony analysis despite the fact that there was relatively strong support for the relationships inThe nuclear data. Expand
Phylogenetic relationships among the major lineages of the birds-of-paradise (Paradisaeidae) using mitochondrial DNA gene sequences.
TLDR
Complete mitochondrial cytochrome b gene sequences were determined from 12 species of the Australo-Papuan birds-of-paradise (Paradisaeidae) representing 9 genera and reveal a radiation of the main paradisaeinine lineages that took place over a relatively short evolutionary time scale. Expand
Phylogenetic relationships among the phrynosomatid sand lizards inferred from mitochondrial DNA sequences generated by heterogeneous evolutionary processes.
TLDR
It is found that nucleotide substitution processes vary widely between genes and among the structural and functional regions or classes of sites within each gene, which highlights the importance of optimizing models and parameter estimates for different genes or parts thereof--a strategy that takes advantages of the strengths of both combining and partitioning data. Expand
A partitioned likelihood analysis of swallowtail butterfly phylogeny (Lepidoptera:Papilionidae).
TLDR
This work explored the use of partitioned, model-based analyses of heterogeneous molecular data in the context of a phylogenetic study of swallowtail butterflies, finding the most likely rooting is within the Papilioninae, although a rooting between Baronia and the remaining Papilionidae is only nonsignificantly less likely.

REEXAMINATION OF BARBET MONOPHYLY USING MITOCHONDRIAL-DNA SEQUENCE DATA
TLDR
These results provide an independent confirmation of relationships proposed in both the morphological and molecular studiesthat New World barbets and toucans are sister taxa with respect to Old World barbet taxa. Expand
Pathways of lysozyme evolution inferred from the sequences of cytochrome b in birds
TLDR
A rapid but ancient radiation among the Galliformes such that the majority of cytochrome b sequence differences among taxa have accumulated on the terminal branches of the reconstructed phylogenetic trees. Expand
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
