BIRD PHYLOGENY POSTER

A completely updated phylogenetic tree, incorporating the most recent molecular studies that have revolutionized our understanding of the relationships between and among the orders and families of the world’s birds.

Based on the classification presented in Bird Families of the World (Winkler, D.W. et al. 2015) and the HBW and BirdLife International Illustrated Checklist of the Birds of the World, Vols. 1 & 2 (del Hoyo, J. & Collar, N.J. 2014, 2016), with several updates.

Essential for understanding the current macrosystematics of the Class Aves!
