The genus Chrysococcyx is one of a number of genera of cuckoos that are brood parasites in their reproductive habits. Their phylogeny, differentiation, dispersal, and ethology -- all of which are reviewed in a comparative, yet detailed, way for the first time in this paper -- are of interest in themselves not only as a special "case history" in the development of parasitism, but also for the.

Transposable elements (TEs) are highly abundant genomic parasites in eukaryote genomes. Although several genomes have been screened for TEs, so far very limited information is available regarding avian TEs and their evolutionary histories. Taking advantage of the rich genomic data available for birds, we characterized the evolutionary history of the galluhop element, originally.

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.

Jul ; Philip Round and coalescence analyses were used to elucidate the species. Cuckoos are medium-sized birds that range in size from the little bronze cuckoo, at 17 g and 15 cm (6 inches), to the channel-billed cuckoo, at g ( lbs) and 63 cm (25 inches).

There is generally little sexual dimorphism in size, but where it exists, it can be either the male or the female that is larger.

One of the most important distinguishing features of the family are the feet, which. In contrast, studies on population structure of viral species such as the human polyomavirus JCV displayed results somewhat dubious with respect to resolving human evolutionary history.

In this chapter, the authors illustrate how pathogen population structure can be used to decipher human migrations and origins by documenting studies based on.

The evolution of birds began in the Jurassic Period, with the earliest birds derived from a clade of theropod dinosaurs named Paraves. Birds are categorized as a biological class, more than a century, the small theropod dinosaur Archaeopteryx lithographica from the Late Jurassic period was considered to have been the earliest bird.

Modern phylogenies place birds in the dinosaur clade. The book begins with a historical perspective on how genomic technology was adopted by bird ecology and evolution research groups. This led, as the book explains, to a revised understanding of avian evolution, with exciting consequences for biodiversity research as a whole.
