Morphological evidence for sister group relationshipbetween flamingos (Aves: Phoenicopteridae) and grebes(Podicipedidae)

Rose Flamingo (Phoenicopterus roseus) Science Article 1 abstract A recent molecular analysis strongly supported sister group relationship between flamingos (Phoenicopteridae) andgrebes (Podicipedidae), a hypothesis which has not been suggested before. Flamingos are long-legged filter-feederswhereas grebes are morphologically quite divergent foot-propelled diving birds, and sister group relationshipbetween these two taxa would thus provide an interesting example […]
