Unlike other migratory hummingbirds in North America, the broad‐tailed hummingbird (Selasphorus platycercus) exhibits both long‐distance migratory behaviour in the USA and sedentary behaviour in Mexico and Guatemala. We examined the evolution of migration linked to its northward expansion using a multiperspective approach. We analysed variation in morphology, mitochondrial and nuclear DNA, estimated migration rates between migratory and sedentary populations, compared divergence times with the… Expand
Phylogeography of the widespread white-eared hummingbird (Hylocharis leucotis): pre-glacial expansion and genetic differentiation of populations separated by the Isthmus of Tehuantepec
TLDR
The phylogeography of the white-eared hummingbird is studied to corroborate the profound effects of Pleistocene climatic fluctuations on the evolutionary history of montane taxa but challenge the generality of expanded suitable habitat during glacial cycles. Expand
Genetic, Ecological and Morphological Divergence between Populations of the Endangered Mexican Sheartail Hummingbird (Doricha eliza)
TLDR
The findings indicate that the divergence of the Veracruz and Yucatan populations is best explained by a combination of a short period of isolation exacerbated by subsequent divergence in climate conditions, and that rather than vicariance, the two isolated ranges of D. eliza are the product of recent colonization and divergence in isolation.

Extensive gene flow characterizes the phylogeography of a North American migrant bird: Black-headed Grosbeak (Pheucticus melanocephalus).
TLDR
Range-wide phylogeographic variation in the Black-headed Grosbeak (Pheucticus melanocephalus), a songbird that is widely distributed across North American scrublands and forests, is described, possibly indicating expansion of the Interior population at the expense of peripheral populations. Expand
Phylogeography, morphology and ecological niche modelling to explore the evolutionary history of Azure-crowned Hummingbird (Amazilia cyanocephala, Trochilidae) in Mesoamerica
The Pleistocene climate cycles and mountain uplift both affected the diversification of taxa in Mesoamerica. Yet, phylogeographic breaks and demographic responses of co-distributed taxa are notExpand
Molecular and climate data reveal expansion and genetic differentiation of Mexican Violet-ear Colibri thalassinus thalassinus (Aves: Trochilidae) populations separated by the Isthmus of Tehuantepec
TLDR
It is concluded that the genetic differentiation of C. thalassinus thalASSinus in Mexico resulted from recent geographical isolation of populations separated by the IT, and corroborate the profound effects of Pleistocene climatic fluctuations on the genetic differentiate of the species but challenge the generality of glacial refugia. Expand
Comparative palaeodistribution of eight hummingbird species reveal a link between genetic diversity and Quaternary habitat and climate stability in Mexico
TLDR
It is observed that the species studied have not responded equally to changes in climate stability in this complex region, suggesting that habitat differences and/or the altitudinal range of the hummingbird species influenced genetic diversity, and that thespecies-specific responses are not only linked to habitat stability in the region but also to contemporary seasonality associated with the availability of floral resources.

Rapid postglacial diversification and long‐term stasis within the songbird genus Junco: phylogeographic and phylogenomic evidence
TLDR
It is found that geographically isolated populations have evolved independently for hundreds of thousands of years despite little differentiation in phenotype, in sharp contrast to phenotypically diverse northern forms, which have diversified within the last few thousand years as a result of the rapid postglacial recolonization of North America. Expand
Historical and current introgression in a Mesoamerican hummingbird species complex: a biogeographic perspective
TLDR
The results support the scenario of secondary contact and range contact during the glacial periods of the Pleistocene and strongly imply that the high levels of structure currently observed are a consequence of the limited dispersal of these hummingbirds across the isthmus and depression barriers. Expand
Genetic and morphological differentiation among populations of the Rivoli's Hummingbird (Eugenes fulgens) species complex (Aves: Trochilidae)
TLDR
The results support the hypothesis that the divergence and demographic expansion within the E. fulgens species complex are associated with the Pleistocene glacial–interglacial cycles and fit a model of recent lineage divergence. Expand
Molecular and iridescent feather reflectance data reveal recent genetic diversification and phenotypic differentiation in a cloud forest hummingbird
TLDR
Results challenge the generality of the contraction/expansion glacial model to cloud forest-interior species and urges management of cloud forest, a highly vulnerable ecosystem to climate change and currently facing destruction, to prevent further loss of genetic diversity or extinction. Expand

Genetic divergence and migration patterns in a North American passerine bird: implications for evolution and conservation
TLDR
Phylogeographic results show that Pleistocene or earlier events have played little role in creating differences between northern and southern populations, suggesting that migratory and other differences between populations have arisen very recently. Expand
POSTGLACIAL POPULATION EXPANSION DRIVES THE EVOLUTION OF LONG-DISTANCE MIGRATION IN A SONGBIRD
TLDR
The phylogeography of the yellow-eyed junco (Junco phaeonotus), a strictly sedentary species, provides a null model supporting the view that northward range expansions were driven solely by environmental factors and not by a predisposition to evolve migratory behavior, and suggests a general mechanism for the repeated evolution of migration within and across bird lineages.

HISTORICAL DIVERSIFICATION OF MIGRATION PATTERNS IN A PASSERINE BIRD
TLDR
The results show that the interruption of gene flow between migratory and sedentary populations is not necessary for the maintenance of such a polymorphism, and that even the most divergent migratory strategies of a bird species are susceptible to evolution in response to historical environmental changes.

Genetic evidence for the effect of a postglacial population expansion on the phylogeography of a North American songbird
TLDR
Support is provided for the Pleistocene expansion hypothesis in MacGillivray's warbler and it is suggested that postglacial expansion of bottlenecked populations is responsible for the lack of variation and structure reported for most North American songbird species. Expand
Genetic variation and migration in the Mexican free‐tailed bat (Tadarida brasiliensis mexicana)
TLDR
This study demonstrates the importance of accounting for coalescent stochasticity in formulating phylogeographical hypotheses, and indicates that analyses that do not take such processes into account can lead to false conclusions regarding a species’ phylo geographical history. Expand

Selection and geographic isolation influence hummingbird speciation: genetic, acoustic and morphological divergence in the wedge-tailed sabrewing (Campylopterus curvipennis)
TLDR
Coalescent analyses of the evolution of phenotypic traits suggest that selection is driving song evolution in wedge-tailed sabrewing lineages in Mesoamerica but drift could not be rejected as a possibility for morphological divergence. Expand
MORPHOLOGICAL AND MOLECULAR VARIATION ACROSS A MIGRATORY DIVIDE IN WILLOW WARBLERS, PHYLLOSCOPUS TROCHILUS
TLDR
The observed pattern, clear morphological and behavioral differentiation without genetic differentiation at neutral loci, suggests either that the differences are maintained by strong selection on the expressed genes in combination with high levels of current gene flow or, in the case of weak gene flow, that the divergence in morphology and behavior is very recent.
