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

Bonellis Warbler (Phylloscopus bonelli) 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 on […]

Genetically confirmed interbreeding between western Bonelli’s warbler ( Phylloscopus bonelli ) and wood warbler ( P. sibilatrix )

Bonellis Warbler (Phylloscopus bonelli) Science Article 2 abstract During May and June 2003, a mixed breeding pair consisting of a male western Bonelli’s warbler (Phylloscopus bonelli) and a female wood warbler (P. sibilatrix) successfully raised six young in a broad-leafed forest near Junkerath, western Germany, an area far outside the regular breeding range of P.
