--The order Trogoniformes currently is divided into six genera: Apaloderma, Pharomachrus, Euptilotis, Priotelus, Trogon, and Harpactes. For this study, the question of intergeneric relationships was addressed based on mitochondrial cytochrome b and 12S ribosomal RNA genes. Maximum parsimony analyses confirmed the monophyly of currently accepted genera. A monophyletic lade encompassing the New World genera was the sister group to the Asian genus Harpactes. The sister group of these clades, in… Expand

Phylogeny and biogeographical history of Trogoniformes, a pantropical bird order
TLDR
Support for the basal relationships among trogons is examined using a combination of nuclear (RAG-1) and mitochondrial (ND2) DNA sequence data, which implies an origin and early vicariance events for the crown clade in the New World. Expand
A re-evaluation of basal phylogenetic relationships within trogons ( Aves : Trogonidae ) based on nuclear DNA sequences
The avian clade Trogonidae (trogons) consists of approximately 40 species distributed pantropically in the Neotropical, Afrotropical and Indomalayan zoogeographical regions.In this study, we evaluateExpand
A re‐evaluation of basal phylogenetic relationships within trogons (Aves: Trogonidae) based on nuclear DNA sequences
TLDR
The analysis of the three nuclear genes combined suggests a sister group relationship between the Afrotropical and Indomalayan trogons clades, whereas the Neotropical taxa form an unresolved polytomy basal to these two groups. Expand
Phylogeny and biogeography of the Asian trogons (Aves: Trogoniformes) inferred from nuclear and mitochondrial DNA sequences.
TLDR
Overall, the extant Asian trogon species appear to have diversified prior to the Pleistocene, based on large pair-wise mitochondrial divergences between taxa. Expand
Higher-level phylogeny of trogoniformes.
TLDR
It appeared that Trogons are more closely related to mousebirds, parrots, and perhaps cuckoos than to coraciiforms, and the phylogeny supported the mousebirds (Coliiformes) as the sister taxon to trogons. Expand
Molecular phylogenetics and biogeography of the Neotropical redstarts (Myioborus; Aves, Parulinae).
Montane areas in the Neotropics are characterized by high diversity and endemism of birds and other groups. The avian genus Myioborus (Parulinae) is a group of insectivorous warblers, characteristicExpand
MOLECULAR PHYLOGENY OF JACANAS AND ITS IMPLICATIONS FOR MORPHOLOGIC AND BIOGEOGRAPHIC EVOLUTION
TLDR
Compared sequences of mitochondrial cytochrome-b and ND5 genes in a phylogenetic analysis of seven species of jacanas postulate that this biogeographic pattern results from the extinction of intervening African and Asian taxa, respectively. Expand
AN EARLY PALEOGENE TROGON (AVES: TROGONIFORMES) FROM THE FUR FORMATION, DENMARK
TLDR
A new fossil trogon from the latest Paleocene–earliest Eocene Fur Formation in north-western Denmark is assigned to the family Trogonidae, based on a well-preserved neurocranium, implying that trogons as a taxonomic group morphologically has stayed nearly stationary through time. Expand
Rapid Laurasian diversification of a pantropical bird family during the Oligocene–Miocene transition
Disjunct, pantropical distributions are a common pattern among avian lineages, but disentangling multiple scenarios that can produce them requires accurate estimates of historical relationships andExpand
More taxa, more characters: the hoatzin problem is still unresolved.
TLDR
The potential of a moderately sized mtDNA data set, supplemented with data from a nuclear intron, to resolve relationships among avian orders is explored and a basal split between Galloanserae and Neoaves within Neognathae and monophyly of both Galliformes and Anseriformes is supported. Expand

Intergeneric relationships of the new world Jays inferred from cytochrome b gene sequences
TLDR
The phylogeny obtained is used to infer a biogeographic scenario, as well as to explain the evolution of a very derived jaw articulation present only in the New World jays, and corroborate the hypothesis that the Pinon Jay (Gymnorhinus cyanocephalus) is a true New WorldJay. Expand
EVOLUTIONARY RELATIONSHIPS WITHIN THE ENSATINA ESCHSCHOLTZII COMPLEX CONFIRM THE RING SPECIES INTERPRETATION
TLDR
Division of this complex into separate species on the basis of the observed patterns of monophyly for mitochondrial DNA is unwarranted because further sampling could reveal additional instances of paraphyly across subspecies and, more generally, because mtDNA alone should not be used to infer species boundaries.

The phylogenetic utility of cytochrome b: lessons from bufonid frogs.

TLDR
The results show that the amino acid sequence of cytochrome b evolves differently in Bufonidae than expected and provides surprisingly little information about old divergences in BUFonidae, and phylogenetic studies applying particular genes to new groups should begin with preliminary surveys of exemplar taxa representing the range of divergence times within the group to estimate the likely phylogenetic utility of that gene in that group.

Why one-kilobase sequences from mitochondrial DNA fail to solve the Hoatzin phylogenetic enigma.
To address the suitability of mitochondrial DNA sequence data for higher avian systematics, cytochrome b sequences for nine species of Cuculiformes and Galliformes were gathered and compared to thoseExpand
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
CHAPTER 8 – Phylogenetic Relationships among and within Select Avian Orders Based on Mitochondrial DNA
TLDR
Phylogenetic analyses presented in this chapter, based on mitochondrial DNA characters, address a number of controversial issues and place these analyses in the context of existing phylogenetic hypotheses. Expand
Higher-level snake phylogeny inferred from mitochondrial DNA sequences of 12S rRNA and 16S rRNA genes.
TLDR
Snakes were found to constitute a monophyletic group, with the scolecophidians (blind snakes) as the most basal lineages (CP = 99%), and this finding supports the hypothesis that snakes underwent a subterranean period early in their evolution. Expand
Oligocene fossils bearing on the origins of the Todidae and the Momotidae (Aves: Coraciiformes)
A new genus and species of tody, f okeofoduf ernyyt, is described from the "middle" Oligocene (Orellan land mammal stage) of Wyoming, providing the first record of the modem family Todidae outsideExpand
Phylogenetic relationships of amphibian families inferred from DNA sequences of mitochondrial 12S and 16S ribosomal RNA genes.
TLDR
Phylogenetic analyses of sequenced data support the monophyly of each of the three amphibian orders and an analysis using the four-cluster method cannot discriminate significantly between all three possible unrooted trees involving the three orders of amphibians and an outgroup. Expand
Variation in mitochondrial cytochrome b sequence in natural populations of South American akodontine rodents (Muridae: Sigmodontinae).
TLDR
A parsimony-based phylogenetic analysis of the data supports the placement of the taxon Microxus within Akodon, of Bolomys just outside the Akodon cluster, and of Chroeomys as a separate genus quite distinct from the other members of this group. Expand
