Biotic and abiotic drivers of evolution in some Australian thornbills (Passeriformes: Acanthiza) in allopatry, sympatry, and parapatry including a case of character displacement

Coman, Amelia; Potter, Sally; Moritz, Craig; Campbell, Catriona D.; Joseph, Leo


Disentangling historical, ecological, and abiotic drivers of diversity among closely related species can benefit from morphological diversity being placed in a phylo-genetic context. It can also be aided when the species are variously in allopatry, parapatry, and sympatry. We studied a clade of Australian thornbills (Passeriformes: Acanthizidae: Acanthiza) comprising the Brown Thornbill (A. pusilla), Inland Thornbill (A. apicalis), Mountain Thornbill (A. katherina), and Tasmanian Thornbill (A....[Show more]
