The true thrushes (Turdinae; Sibley and Monroe, 1990) are a speciose lineage of songbirds, with a near-cosmopolitan distribution. Following the systematic placement of true thrushes as a close relative of Old World flycatchers and chats (Muscicapinae) by the DNA–DNA hybridization work of Sibley and Ahlquist (1990), a number of molecular systematic studies have focused on various aspects of true thrush relationships. These studies have included phylogenetic assessments of genera membership in… CONTINUE READING
