Phylogeography and taxonomy of the Little Bronze-Cuckoo (Chalcites minutillus) in Australia's monsoon tropics

Joseph, Leo; Zeriga, Tanya; Adcock, Gregory; Langmore, Naomi


We investigated relationships and phylogeographical structure among Australian populations of the obligatorily brood-parasitic Little Bronze-cuckoo (Chalcites minutillus) based on analyses of microsatellite and mtDNA sequences. We find that these populations are paraphyletic with respect to each other and suggest that this is a result of a combination of incomplete lineage sorting and gene flow. Our results show that the Australian populations of the C. minutillus complex are at a time in their...[Show more]
