Abstract

We use genomic data from all species of birds-of-paradise to resolve the phylogeny and evolutionary history of the Paradisaeidae. By using a comparative genomic approach, we aim to identify genomic regions under divergent selection, examine the relative importance adaptive introgression and how past hybridization has affected the speciation process. We we also use this project to store data for some smaller avian project that we are working on.
