A cladistic analysis of 14 binary morphological and nest architecture characters was conducted to investigate the relationship of Neopipo cinnamomea, formerly placed in the manakins (Pipridae), to the Empidonax assemblage of tyrant flycatchers (Tyrannidae; Lanyon 1986, 1988a). The results demonstrate that Neopipo cinnamomea is not a manakin, but a member of the Myiophobus group of tyrannids, which includes Myiophobus, Myiobius (including Terenotriccus erythrurus), Pyrrhomyias, and Hirundinea…

PHYLOGENY OF THE TYRANT FLYCATCHERS (TYRANNIDAE) BASED ON MORPHOLOGY AND BEHAVIOR
TLDR
Characters of the nasal septum that past workers have considered conservative and phylogenetically informative are supported as synapomorphies of the kingbird and restricted Empidonax assemblages, and there is some evidence that characters describing plumage color pattern are more homoplasious than the other character suites I examined.
Tyrant flycatchers coming out in the open : phylogeny and ecological radiation of Tyrannidae ( Aves , Passeriformes )
TLDR
A well-resolved phylogeny based on DNA sequences from three nuclear introns for 128 taxa for Tyrannidae is presented, confirming much of the overall picture of Tyrannidae relationships, and also identifying several novel relationships.
Tyrant flycatchers coming out in the open: phylogeny and ecological radiation of Tyrannidae (Aves, Passeriformes)
TLDR
A well‐resolved phylogeny based on DNA sequences from three nuclear introns for 128 taxa is presented, confirming much of the overall picture of Tyrannidae relationships, and also identifying several novel relationships.
A study of gross morphological and histological syringeal features of true francolins (Galliformes: Francolinus, Scleroptila, Peliperdix and Dendroperdix spp.) and spurfowls (Pternistis spp.) in a phylogenetic context
TLDR
Gross morphological and histological syringeal anatomy of francolins, spurfowls and sister taxa are explored to test whether differences are concordant with a molecular-based hypothesis, and differences found were the presence of a shield-versus diamond-shaped tympanum among francolin and spurfowlers respectively.
Phylogeny and phylogenetic classification of the tyrant flycatchers, cotingas, manakins, and their allies (Aves: Tyrannides)
TLDR
This work proposes the first comprehensive phylogenetic classification that attempts to achieve isometry between the tree and a classification scheme using subordination and phyletic sequencing and identifies many avenues for further systematic study.
Molecular taxonomy and intra-Palaearctic boundary: new insights from the biogeography of the black francolin (Francolinus francolinus) by means of microsatellite DNA
TLDR
Overall, these results point to an intra-Palaearctic boundary crossing Iran longitudinally, thus raising prospect of compromise between the two most debated views.
Phylogenetic Tests of Alternative Intersexual Selection Mechanisms: Trait Macroevolution in a Polygynous Clade (Aves: Pipridae)
  • R. Prum
  • Biology
    The American Naturalist
  • 1997
TLDR
The diverse repertoires and hierarchically distributed traits in the lekking manakin clade indicate that Fisherian selection may have played an important role in diversification of secondary sexual traits in other groups of polygynous animals.
Breeding Biology of the Golden-Faced Tyrannulet (Zimmerius chrysops) in Venezuela
TLDR
These breeding biology parameters for Z. chrysops differ substantially from other tyrant-flycatchers and temperate species, further highlighting the diversity within the Tyrannidae.

Monophyly of the tyrannidae (Aves): comparison of morphology and DNA
TLDR
The hypothesis of monophyly of the avian family Tyrannidae is tested using outgroup comparison of traditional characters, as well as several characters examined in recent studies of the group, using data obtained from DNA-DNA hybridization.
MOLECULAR PERSPECTIVE ON HIGHER-LEVEL RELATIONSHIPS IN THE TYRANNOIDEA (AVES)
TLDR
Improved ability to determine higher- level relationships within this assemblage was considered a consequence of the use of biochem- ical characters, but conflicts between this and a recent DNA-DNA hybridization study indicate that the extraction of phylogenetic information from biochemical data may not be as free from assumptions as the authors would like.
The systematic position of the cocos flycatcher
TLDR
A comparative study of the skull and syrinx demonstrates that the nearest relatives of Nesotriccus are Phaeomyias murina and Capsiempisflaveola in the subfamily Elaeniinae, since all three genera share unique derived character states of the nasal septum and of the supporting elements of the syrinX.
A World Checklist of Birds
TLDR
This book provides a list of 9,702 living avian species based on their 1990 book Distribution and Taxonomy of Birds of the World and its 1993 Supplement and gives the Latin and English names for the species recognised in that work and in the Supplement.
Outgroup Analysis and Parsimony
TLDR
Methods that use outgroups in the reconstruction of phylogeny are described and evaluated by the criterion of parsimony, and algorithms and rules are presented that find the most parsimonious estimates of ancestral states for binary and multistate characters when outgroup relationships are well resolved.
