A phylogenetic analysis of the evolution of moultstrategies in Western Palearctic warblers (Aves:Sylviidae)

Eastern Bonellis Warbler (Phylloscopus orientalis) Science Article 1 abstract Adult birds replace their flight feathers (moult) at least once per year, either in summer aftertermination of breeding or (in the case of some long-distance migratory species) in the winterquarters. We reconstructed the evolutionary pathways leading to summer and winter moultusing recently published molecular phylogenetic information […]
