- ... The Indian Cormorant (Phalacrocorax fuscicollis) is a common avian piscivore that occurs throughout the Indian subcontinent and east to southern Vietnam. Its evolutionary relationships, however, have remained obscure, largely because of a lack of material available for either osteological or genetic analysis. Here we show using DNA-sequence data from both nuclear and mitochondrial genes that this ...

- ... Human impacts have substantially reduced avian biodiversity in many parts of the world, particularly on isolated islands of the Pacific Ocean. The New Zealand archipelago, including its five subantarctic island groups, holds breeding grounds for a third of the world’s penguin species, including several representatives of the diverse crested penguin genus Eudyptes. While this species-rich genus has ...
