The world-renowned participants use those new tips on how to resolve specific features of the evolutionary background of birds.

Avian Molecular Evolution and Systematics offers an outline of the idea and alertness of molecular systematics, targeting the phylogeny and evolutionary biology of birds. New, constructing components within the phylogeny of birds at a number of taxonomic parts are lined, in addition to tools of study for molecular info, evolutionary genetics inside of and among fowl populations, and the applying of molecular-based phylogenies to broader questions of evolution.

  • Contains authoritative contributions from prime researchers
  • Discusses the application of alternative molecular markers for questions of avian evolution, related to populations and higher-level taxa
  • Applies molecular-based phylogenies of birds and molecular inhabitants genetics facts to vast questions of organismal and molecular evolution.
  • Compares and contrasts molecular and morphological facts sets
