- Nuclear corroboration of DNA-DNA hybridization in deep phylogenies of hummingbirds, swifts, and passerines: the phylogenetic utility of ZENK (ii)Alison L Chubb
Museum of Vertebrate Zoology, 3101 Valley Life Sciences Building, University of California, Berkeley, CA 94720, USA
Mol Phylogenet Evol 30:128-39. 2004..These results are strikingly similar to other recent findings and indicative of continuing uncertainty about the higher level relationships of oscine passerines...
- New nuclear evidence for the oldest divergence among neognath birds: the phylogenetic utility of ZENK (i)Alison L Chubb
Museum of Vertebrate Zoology, University of California, 3101 Valley Life Sciences Building, Berkeley, CA 94720, USA
Mol Phylogenet Evol 30:140-51. 2004..Despite the ongoing lack of neoaves resolution, ZENK's sequence divergence and base composition patterns indicate its general utility as a new phylogenetic marker for higher-level avian systematics...
- Birds in a bush: five genes indicate explosive evolution of avian ordersSteven Poe
Department of Biology, Museum of Southwestern Biology, University of New Mexico, Albuquerque, New Mexico 87131, USA
Evolution 58:404-15. 2004..This result explains why a robust phylogeny of birds has not been produced despite much effort on the part of avian systematists...
