      On New Guinea and its surrounding islands, an assortment of Carlia with weakly tricarinate to smooth dorsal scales has been variously recognized as C. fusca or members of the fusca group. The C. fusca group has never been defined or characterized explicitly, nor has any other group of Carlia.A preliminary cladistic analysis of the Australian, New Guinean, and Sundan Carlia failed to identify.

Avian Molecular Evolution and Systematics presents an overview of the theory and application of molecular systematics, focusing on the phylogeny and evolutionary biology of birds. New, developing areas in the phylogeny of birds at multiple taxonomic areas are covered, as well as methods of analysis for molecular data, evolutionary genetics.

Taxonomy and systematics. Historically, the olive ibis was included in various genera such as Geronticus, Comatibis and Harpiprion before finally being classified among the Bostrychia. It is also related to the Madagascar crested ibis Lophotibis cristata and Geronticus ibises.

Four subspecies of this ibis are currently recognised: Bostrychia olivacea olivacea, B. cupreipennis, B. o Class: Aves.

The Gulf of Guinea islands (Bioko, Príncipe, São Tomé and Annobón) are a spectacular centre of endemism. Bioko was formerly connected to the mainland, but the others are oceanic and have always been isolated. Thus Bioko shares most of its biota with Cameroon and has only one endemic, whereas the three oceanic islands dealt with in detail in this book possess multiple endemics.

Ibis – VIEW. The African crake (Crex egregia) is a small to medium-size ground-living bird in the rail family, found in most of central to southern Africa. It is seasonally common in most of its range other than the rainforests and areas that have low annual rainfall.

This crake is a partial migrant, moving away from the equator as soon as the rains provide sufficient grass cover to allow it to breed Class: Aves. Journal of Avian Biology 48(7): Battey, C.

For decades, French guinea fowl have been affected by fulminating enteritis of unclear origin. By using metagenomics, we identified a novel avian gammacoronavirus associated with this disease that is distantly related to turkey coronaviruses.

Fatal respiratory diseases in humans have recently been caused by coronaviruses of animal origin. Equatorial Guinea, the only Spanish-speaking nation in sub-Saharan Africa, is one of the least developed countries on the continent.

In the early years of this century it was very prosperous as a result of its flourishing cacao and coffee trade, but it now faces severe economic difficulties.

A phylogenetic analysis of auks, puffins and their allies including both extant (23) and extinct (28) alcid species gives new and fascinating pespectives about the possible origins and diversification as well as about the reconstruction of ancestral diet and evolution of wing.

Australia lies just to the south. New Guinea and Australia share the Australian plate. Avian Systematics • The goal of systematics (and classification) is to provide a correct phylogeny (evolutionary family tree) for organisms. • Avian systematics deals with how the phylogeny of modern birds is established.

Bases for Classification • Morphology = physical characteristics – historical method by which phylogenies derived. The avian genome has remained unusually stable during evolution and contrasts sharply with the frequent chromosomal rearrangements seen in the rodent lineage.

Detailed analyses of polymorphism levels in chickens, including a genome-wide screening in three chicken breeds yielding a set of million SNP markers, reveal unexpectedly high levels Cited by: Beyond the Philippines, the PAIC concept has been applied broadly to explain distributions and phylogeographic patterns in other archipelagos and continental shelf systems as diverse as the Gulf of Guinea (Melo et al.

Although much research has been carried out on speciation in birds, we still know very little about the underlying genetic processes.

In this project we explore two striking examples of ecological speciation in birds, namely the Nesospiza buntings in the Tristan da Cunha archipelago and the Crithagra (Serinus)/Neospiza finches on the Gulf of Guinea islands.

Huxley, and great contributions have been made by Dobzhansky, '37, Mayr, '42 and many others. The species problem was now attacked genetically and biologically, and therefore the 'biological species' concept Author: Nagahisa Kuroda. Ratites are native to most of the continents and a few large islands of the southern hemisphere (ostriches in Africa, rheas in South America, emus in Australia, cassowaries in Australia and New Guinea, kiwis in New Zealand; see Chapter 17).

The birds are similar in being flightless, but each one is a different avian species with diverse. This book provides a comprehensive introduction to all aspects of biological invasion by non-native species.

Highlighting important research findings associated with each stage of invasion, Invasion Ecology provides an overview of the invasion process from transportation patterns and causes of establishment success to ecological impacts, invader management, and post-invasion evolution.
