Buteonine hawks represent one of the most diverse groups in the Accipitridae, with 58 species distributed in a variety of habitats on almost all continents. Variations in migratory behavior, remarkable dispersal capability, and unusual diversity in Central and South America make buteonine hawks an excellent model for studies in avian evolution. To evaluate the history of their global radiation, we used an integrative approach that coupled estimation of the phylogeny using a large sequence… Expand
Phylogeny, Historical Biogeography and the Evolution of Migration in Accipitrid Birds of Prey (Aves: Accipitriformes)
TLDR
Results from directional evolutionary tests indicate that migration evolved in the tropics and then increased the rate of colonization of temperate habitats, suggesting that temperate species might be descendants of tropical ones that dispersed into these seasonal habitats. Expand
Multilocus tests of Pleistocene refugia and ancient divergence in a pair of Atlantic Forest antbirds (Myrmeciza)
TLDR
The results suggests that limited marker sampling in recent AF studies may compromise estimates of divergence times and historical demography, and the effects of such sampling on this and other studies are discussed. Expand
Phylogeny, migration and geographic range size evolution of Anax dragonflies (Anisoptera: Aeshnidae)
The genus Anax is a group of cosmopolitan dragonflies noted for its conspicuous migratory behaviours and large size. Here we present the first dated, species-level, multigene, molecular phylogenyExpand
Macroevolutionary patterns in the diversification of parrots: effects of climate change, geological events and key innovations
TLDR
A temporal and spatial framework for the diversification of parrots is presented using external avian fossils as calibration points in order to evaluate the relative importance of the influences of past climate change, plate tectonics and ecological opportunity. Expand
Molecular phylogeny, biogeography and insights into the origin of parthenogenesis in the Neotropical genus Leposoma (Squamata: Gymnophthalmidae): Ancient links between the Atlantic Forest and Amazonia.
TLDR
The position of Leposoma baturitensis, endemic to relictual forests in the semiarid Caatingas northeastern Brazil, and its divergence from the remaining species of the Atlantic Forest, suggests an ancient isolation with no indication of a secondary contact with forests of the eastern coast. Expand
Old and Cosmopolite: Molecular Phylogeny of Tropical–Subtropical Kites (Aves: Elaninae) with Taxonomic Implications
TLDR
This work uses nucleotide sequences of three genetic markers to reconstruct the phylogenetic relationships of the Elaninae, other kites, and representatives of different families of diurnal raptors, and suggests elevating this group to family level as Elanidae within the order Accipitriformes. Expand
DNA sequence data reveal a subfamily-level divergence within Thamnophilidae (Aves: Passeriformes).
TLDR
This study demonstrates that the genus Terenura is polyphyletic and describes the genus Euchrepomis for callinota, humeralis, spodioptila, and sharpei, and erects the subfamily EuchREPomidinae. Expand
Phylogeny and Taxonomy of the Patagonian Miocene Falcon Thegornis musculosus Ameghino, 1895 (Aves: Falconidae)
TLDR
The ecotonal margins produced by the vanishing of humid forests that developed during changes in Patagonian plant communities throughout early Neogene times are hypothesized as a plausible scenario to understand the evolution of this basal clade of falcons. Expand
Unravelling population processes over the Late Pleistocene driving contemporary genetic divergence in Palearctic buzzards.
TLDR
Overall, this study illustrates how complex population processes over the Late Pleistocene have shaped the patterns of genetic divergence in Palearctic buzzards, due to the joint effects of shared ancestral polymorphisms, population expansions and contractions, with hybridization at contact zones leading to admixture and introgression. Expand
The evolution of avian migration
TLDR
A report of low levels of Zugunruhe in a sedentary bird, Saxicola torquata, is reconstructed as derived in a clade of otherwise migratory populations, suggesting that the loss of migration was a result of suppression (but not elimination), and phylogenetic mapping exercise is used. 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
EVOLUTION INTO AND OUT OF THE ANDES: A BAYESIAN ANALYSIS OF HISTORICAL DIVERSIFICATION IN THAMNOPHILUS ANTSHRIKES
TLDR
A molecular phylogeny of Thamnophlius antshrikes, a clade of 30 species whose collective distribution spans nearly the entirety of lowland habitats in tropical South America, the eastern slope foothills of the Andes, and the tepuis, finds the highest transition rates were between highland-restricted and lowland-to-highland distributions, with extremely low rates into and out of low land-restricted distributions. Expand
VICARIANT SPECIATION OF CURASSOWS (AVES, CRACIDAE): A HYPOTHESIS BASED ON MITOCHONDRIAL DNA PHYLOGENY
TLDR
Vicariance seems to be the major mode of isolation that favored allopatric speciation in the curassows, and the diversification of curassow seems to have occurred from the Middle Miocene to the end of the Pliocene. Expand
Out of Amazonia again and again: episodic crossing of the Andes promotes diversification in a lowland forest flycatcher
TLDR
The phylogeographic reconstruction of lowland taxa revealed a complex history, with multiple cases in which geographically proximate populations do not represent sister lineages, and Divergence time estimates suggest that at least two cross-Andean dispersal events post-date Andean uplift. Expand
Historical biogeography and diversification within the Neotropical parrot genus Pionopsitta (Aves: Psittacidae)
TLDR
The results suggest that diversification in Gypopsitta was influenced mainly by geotectonic events, marine transgressions and river dynamics, whereas Quaternary glacial cycles of forest change seem to have played a minor role in the origination of the currently recognized species. Expand
Molecular systematics and biogeography of the Hawaiian avifauna
TLDR
The authors' data provide little evidence that Hawaiian bird lineages predate the formation of the current set of main islands (i.e., >5 Ma), as has been found for Hawaiian Drosophila and lobeliads. Expand
Independent evolution of migration on the South American landscape in a long-distance temperate-tropical migratory bird, Swainson's flycatcher (Myiarchus swainsoni)
Aim:  To understand the evolution of long-distance temperate–tropical migration in a South American bird, Swainson's flycatcher (Myiarchus swainsoni). Methods:  A total of 842 base pairs of theExpand
The Evolution of Avian Migration Systems between Temperate and Tropical Regions of the New World
  • G. Cox
  • Biology
  • The American Naturalist
  • 1985
TLDR
It is inferred that species migrating between the temperate zone and the tropics have populations that are resource-limited throughout the year, and that these migrants impose year-round population limitation on the members of the resident temperate and tropical bird communities. Expand
EVOLUTION OF LONG-DISTANCE MIGRATION IN AND HISTORICAL BIOGEOGRAPHY OF CATHARUS THRUSHES: A MOLECULAR PHYLOGENETIC APPROACH
TLDR
The evolution of long-distance migration in and the historical biogeography of Catharus thrushes is addressed and uncertainty in ancestral character states presents an interesting scenario including potential drop-offs of resident species from migratory ancestors. Expand
Phylogeography of the Galápagos hawk (Buteo galapagoensis): a recent arrival to the Galápagos Islands.
TLDR
The recent arrival, genetic isolation, and phenotypic differentiation among populations suggest that the Galápagos hawk, a rather new species itself, is in the earliest stages of further divergence. Expand
