This private website wants to familiarise the interested reader with up-to-date scientific ideas on the evolutionary history, phylogeny and biogeography of birds. Phylogenetic relationships will generally be considered down to genus level, but the exceedingly speciose perching birds (Passeriformes) will be treated to family level only. Readers interested in species-level phylogenies may refer to the excellent online documentation of John H. Boyd III that also provides an extensive reference list. (link)

  • All graphical reconstructions and fotos may be freely shared as long as their origin is clearly stated.
  • Provision of additional high-resolution fotos of birds would be appreciated and acknowledged in the figure legends.

Any comments that may help to improve this website are welcome.
