Diverse interactions, including hybridisation, between Brown and Inland Thornbills in South Australia
Across their full geographic ranges three major zones of interaction between Brown and Inland Thornbills have been recognised: 1) the Upper South-East of South Australia (SA) and northwestern
Suggestions pour des recherches sur la spéciation des oiseaux en Iran
La formation d'espèces nouvelles chez les oiseaux s'effectue communément de façon allopatrique, par isolement géographique, selon le modèle développé par Mayr dès 1940 (voir aussi 1942 et 1963). Dans
An overview of speciation and species limits in birds
TLDR
The process of population divergence and speciation produces avian diversity but is very complex, creating difficult puzzles for us to solve when asking “Is it a species?” Avian taxonomy will continue to change as the authors improve their data and analyses and test historic hypotheses about species limits.
Euploea dorippus Klug, 1845: species, semispecies, subspecies, junior subjective synonym of Danaus chrysippus chrysippus (Linnaeus), and/or form – what does Klug’s dorippus represent? (Lepidoptera: Nymphalidae, Danainae)
The type material of the available name Euploea dorippus Klug, 1845, originated from northern Sudan, an area that lies beyond the core zone of the semispecies or subspecies currently known as Danaus
Hybridism between Cyanocorax chrysops and Cyanocorax cyanopogon (Aves: Corvidae) in Brazil
TLDR
This is the first documented case of natural hybridization in jays in Brazil and the second case involving sister species within the New World jays.
Behavioral Isolation and Incipient Speciation in Birds
TLDR
Empirical evidence suggests that extrinsic postzygotic barriers, in the form of selection against hybrids having intermediate phenotypes, also play an important role in avian diversification, especially in completing the speciation process.
Bird Species

TLDR
Only if humans leave more room and time to birds and other organisms can be expected to maintain such a number of diverse bird species, although they will keep modifying, splitting, and becoming extinct—but for natural reasons.
How Do They Do It? – Understanding the Success of Marine Invasive Species
From the depths of the oceans to the shallow estuaries and wetlands of our coasts, organisms of the marine environment are teeming with unique adaptations to cope with a multitude of varying
Phylogeography and the Role of Hybridization in Speciation
TLDR
In this chapter, the focus is on reminding us that evolution is an ongoing, dynamic process and that appreciating this evolution can help us make sense of why it is sometimes so complicated to pin names on birds and indeed many other organisms.

Speciation in Colombian forest birds west of the Andes. American Museum novitates ; no. 2294
The Cordilleras of the northern Andes separate a narrow, humid, tropical lowland forest belt, along the Colombian Pacific coast, from the extensive Amazonian basin east of the mountains. The humid
Sympatry Changes and Hybridization Incidence in Mallards and Black Ducks
TLDR
Owing to its much smaller gene pool, the Black Duck is vulnerable to eventual swamping through hybridization and introgression, although the present hybridization rate is sufficiently low as to make this unlikely in the foreseeable future.
More Hybrid Hummingbirds from the United States
TLDR
HYBRID hummingbirds collected within the A.O.U. Check-List (1957) area were discussed and summarized by Banks and Johnson (1961) and Short's study of these sp2cimens convinced him that all three were indeed hybrids, and led to collaboration in preparing this report.
The Superspecies Concept
TLDR
It is proposed that brackets (= square parentheses) enclose the first named species of a superspecies, or Bubo [bubo] virginianus to indicate that the species virginianms is a member of the Superspecies Bubo (bubo).
