Alström’s group: Taxonomy, systematics and evolution of birds

We study the taxonomy of multiple groups of passerine birds by integrating DNA, morphology, vocalizations, other behaviours, ecology and geographical distributions. Phylogenetic relationships are reconstructed using DNA. A plethora of evolutionary questions, e.g. how new species evolve, are studied integrating all of the data above.
