ABSTRACT. We investigated the phylogenetic relationships of Campylorhamphus pucherani using DNA sequences from three mitochondrial genes and a nuclear intron, as well as 84 morphological characters from the skeleton, the integument, and the musculature. The molecular phylogeny indicated that C. pucherani is not part of Campylorhamphus; instead, it is the sister species to Drymornis bridgesii, in a clade that also contains Lepidocolaptes. The morphological phylogeny also placed C. pucherani in a… 

Phylogenetic revision of the floricolous longhorn beetle genus Strangalidium Giesbert (Coleoptera: Cerambycidae)

This study is the first that integrates characters codified with geometric morphometric methods for inferring the phylogeny of any group of Cerambycidae, and Strangalidium is recovered as paraphyletic, forming a clade with Strangalia Dejean.

Phylogeny and Classification of Automolus Foliage-Gleaners and Allies (Furnariidae)

A new classification for Automolus and allies is proposed, including the description of a new subgenus, on the basis of DNA sequences of mitochondrial and nuclear genes and of quantitative assessments of phenotypic variation.

Defining the phylogeographic relationship between cis- and trans-Andean populations of Dendrocincla fuliginosa and Xenops minutus in Colombia

It is proposed that phylogeographic differentiation in lowland species in this region is not only explained by the presence of the Andean mountains, but also based on the ecological shifts between major ecosystems such as Amazonia and Orinoquia.

Corrigendum: Morphology‐based phylogenetic analysis and classification of the family Rhinocryptidae (Aves: Passeriformes)

The first morphology-based phylogenetic study of the Rhinocryptidae is presented, using 90 anatomical characters scored for all genera of the family and representatives of all families of the infraorder Furnariides.

An Update of Wallace’s Zoogeographic Regions of the World

A global map of zoogeographic regions is generated by combining data on the distributions and phylogenetic relationships of 21,037 species of amphibians, birds, and mammals, and it is shown that spatial turnover in the phylogenetic composition of vertebrate assemblages is higher in the Southern than in the Northern Hemisphere.

BIOLOGÍA REPRODUCTIVA DEL PICAPALO COLORADO (CAMPYLORHAMPHUS TROCHILIROSTRIS) Y EL PICAPALO OSCURO (C. FALCULARIUS) EN ARGENTINA

Describing aspects of reproduction from three nests of the Red-billed Scythebill in the Chaco of Argentina and from one nest of the Black- billed Scythe bill in the Atlantic Forest of Argentina shows that Campylorhamphus should be included among the genera of Dendrocolaptinae with biparental care.

Divergence in nest placement and parental care of Neotropical foliage‐gleaners and treehunters (Furnariidae: Philydorini)

It is proposed that species in the Automolus-Thripadectes-Clibanornis clade are underground burrow excavators, and those in the Syndactyla-anabacerthia-Anabazenops clade is secondary tree-cavity nesters (nonexcavators).

CORRELATED EVOLUTION OF BEAK MORPHOLOGY AND SONG IN THE NEOTROPICAL WOODCREEPER RADIATION

Evidence of a trade‐off between the rate of repetition of song syllables and frequency bandwidths is found, suggesting that ecological selection on beak morphology influences the diversification of woodcreeper songs and indicates a broader role for ecology in avian diversification.

Phylogenetic relationships of woodcreepers (Aves: Dendrocolaptinae) – incongruence between molecular and morphological data

A molecular phylogeny of the major lineages of woodcreepers (Aves: Dendrocolaptinae) is presented, based on nucleotide sequence data from a nuclear non-coding gene region (myoglobin intron II) and a protein- coding mitochondrial gene (cytochrome b).

A phylogeny of the woodcreepers (Dendrocolaptinae)

A phylogeny of 42 species representing the 13 genera of woodcreepers was constructed by means of a numerical-cladistic analysis of morphological characters from the hindlimb muscles, bill, nostrils, feet, and tail, but the characters used did not effectively delineate relationships between species in the large genera Lepidocolaptes and Xiphorhynchus.

The Phylogenetic Relationships of the Piciformes (Class Aves)

It is hypothesized that the piciforms constitute a monophyletic group on the basis of possessing a unique flexor tendon pattern in the hindlimb, a M. flexor hallucis longus with three heads of origin, zygodactyly, and a well-developed sehnenhalter on the outer (IV) trochlea of the tarsometatarsus.

Abstract The phylogeny of all known Xiphorhynchus (Dendrocolaptidae) species and many of its subspecies was reconstructed to evaluate species limits in this taxonomically challenging genus and

Molecular Systematics of the Rhinocryptid Genus Pteroptochos

Relationships within the rhinocryptid genus Pteroptochos (huet-huets and turca) were investigated using complete sequences of the mitochondrial genes COII and ND3, and it was revealed that P. castaneus, P. tarnii, and P. megapodius constitute separate lineages.

Molecular Phylogenetics and Biogeography of Tanagers in the GenusRamphocelus(Aves)

General area cladogram suggests the following area relationships: Pacific and Caribbean Central America are sister areas, Choco is the sister to the Central American area, and Amazonia/southeastern Brazil is the outgroup area to the Choco/Central American clade.

Phylogeny and phylogenetic classification of the antbirds, ovenbirds, woodcreepers, and allies (Aves: Passeriformes: infraorder Furnariides)

A phylogenetic analysis of the Furnariides sampling 124 genera supports the Melanopareidae and Grallariidae as distinct from the Rhinocryptidae and Formicariidae, respectively and erects new family‐group names for clades having high branch support across methods.

The utility of DNA sequences of an intron from the beta-fibrinogen gene in phylogenetic analysis of woodpeckers (Aves: Picidae).

The ability of the 7 intron of beta-fibrinogen to provide well resolved, independent gene trees for recently evolved groups and establishes it as a source of sequences to be used in other phylogenetic studies are demonstrated.
