    Department of Zoology, University of British Columbia, Vancouver, V6T 1Z4, Canada
    Proc Biol Sci 271:1881-7. 2004
    ..One explanation for the absence of pre-Pleistocene superspecies in boreal avifaunas is that strong selection pressures operated in boreal refugia, causing superspecies members to achieve ecological differentiation at an accelerated rate...
