DNA barcodes of birds are currently available for 41% of known species and for many different geographic areas; therefore, they are a rich data source to answer evolutionary questions. We review studies that have used DNA barcodes to investigate evolutionary processes in birds using diverse approaches. We also review studies that have investigated species in depth where taxonomy and DNA barcodes present inconsistencies. Species that showed low genetic interspecific divergence and lack of… 
DNA barcoding a unique avifauna: an important tool for evolution, systematics and conservation
TLDR
DNA barcodes accurately identify most New Zealand bird species, however, low levels of COI sequence divergence in some recently diverged taxa limit the identification power of DNA barcoding.
DNA barcodes of birds from northern Colombia
TLDR
This study reports the barcodes for several low elevation bird species from northern Colombia with the goal to provide tools for species identification in this region of South America and finds that barcodes largely matched (but not always) phenotypic identification and they also facilitated the identification of several challenging passerine species.
Revealing the biodiversity of Chilean birds through the COI barcode approach
TLDR
The result suggests that bird species from Chile show low levels of genetic structure and divergence, and implies that COI barcodes could be used as an effective tool to identify nearly all the Chilean bird species analyzed.
Molecular genetic studies of Chilean avifauna: an overview about current progress
TLDR
A search in two bibliographic databases over the period between 1998 and 2018 was conducted to identify the number and class of articles published in this research field and to assess progress in different molecular genetic issues of Chilean birds.
DNA barcoding reveals cryptic diversity and peculiar phylogeographic patterns in mojarras (Perciformes: Gerreidae) from the Caribbean and South-western Atlantic
TLDR
Assessment of the genetic diversity of species and populations of Eucinostomus using DNA barcodes using a systematic and phylogeographic context suggests that Plio-Pleistocene events played a major role in the diversification of mojarras.
Molecular genetic studies of Chilean avifauna: an overview about current progress Estudos genéticos moleculares da avifauna Chilena: uma visão geral sobre o progresso atual
TLDR
A search in two bibliographic databases over the period between 1998 and 2018 was conducted to identify the number and class of articles published in this research field and the quantification of specific research categories was performed to assess progress in different molecular genetic issues of Chilean birds.
From Barcodes to Biomes: Special Issues from the 6th International Barcode of Life Conference.
TLDR
Two special issues of Genome showcase the progress that has been made in applying DNA barcoding in diverse ways and outline exciting future prospects for discovery.
Genetic variation in neotropical butterflies is associated with sampling scale, species distributions, and historical forest dynamics
TLDR
The results show that COI discriminates species well, but that identification success is reduced on average by ~20% as spatial and taxonomic coverage rises, and levels of genetic variation are associated with species' spatial distribution type, a pattern which might reflect differences in their dispersal and colonization abilities.
Pilot biodiversity assessment of the Hkakabo Razi passerine avifauna in northern Myanmar – implications for conservation from molecular genetics
TLDR
It is predicted that a great part of undetected faunal diversity in the Hkakabo Razi region will be discovered and many of them will be candidates for taxonomic splits or for the scientific description of new taxa.
Multi-locus exon-primed intron crossing (EPIC) primer design for regional birds and algorithm design for a combination of introns
TLDR
It has been noted that the EPIC method is capable of distinguishing 10 species of local birds in Hokkaido and is therefore suggested to be utilized as a convenient means for multiple species identification.

The barcode of life project has assembled a tremendous number of mitochondrial cytochrome c oxidase I (COI) sequences. Although these sequences were gathered to develop a DNA‐based system for species
Comprehensive DNA barcode coverage of North American birds
TLDR
The consistent finding of constrained intraspecific mitochondrial variation in this large assemblage of species supports the emerging view that selective sweeps limit mitochondrial diversity.
Identification of Birds through DNA Barcodes
TLDR
The finding of large COI sequence differences between, as compared to small differences within, species confirms the effectiveness of COI barcodes for the identification of bird species, and implies that a standard screening threshold of sequence difference could speed the discovery of new animal species.
New DNA barcodes for identification of Korean birds
TLDR
This study investigated the validity of DNA barcoding in Korean bird species by using additional barcode records, and discovered that the average genetic distance between congeneric species was 25 times higher than the average Genetic distance within species.
Filling the gap - COI barcode resolution in eastern Palearctic birds
TLDR
DNA barcodes are a practical means for rapid species assignment, although efficient analytical methods will likely require a two-tiered approach to differentiate closely related pairs of species.
Molecular Identification of Birds: Performance of Distance-Based DNA Barcoding in Three Genes to Delimit Parapatric Species
TLDR
The results confirm the existence of a wide gap between intra- and interspecies divergences for both cox1 and cob, and indicate that distance-based DNA barcoding provides sufficient information to identify and delineate bird species in 98% of all possible pairwise comparisons.
DNA Barcoding Works in Practice but Not in (Neutral) Theory
TLDR
It is argued that the weight of evidence-low intraspecific variation and the molecular clock-indicates neutral evolution plays a minor role in mitochondrial sequence evolution, and extreme purifying selection, including at synonymous sites, limits variation within species and continuous adaptive selection drives the molecular Clock.
Evolution of modern birds revealed by mitogenomics: timing the radiation and origin of major orders.
TLDR
These analyses indicate that by improving the taxonomic sampling, complete mt genomes can solve the evolutionary relationships among major bird groups and support the choice of COX 1 among mt genes as target for developing DNA barcoding approaches in birds.
DNA Barcoding: Error Rates Based on Comprehensive Sampling
TLDR
This is the first examination of barcoding performance in a comprehensively sampled, diverse group (cypraeid marine gastropods, or cowries) and employs a novel phylogenetic approach to calculate intraspecific variation and interspecific divergence.
