Abstract

Phylogenetic relationships of 36 Fringillidae species based on mitochondrial CoI gene sequences were reconstructed using the Bayesian (BI) maximum-likelihood (ML) and Neighbor-joining(NJ)methods. The results suggest that the relationship of Calcarius lapponicus check for this species in other resources and Emberiza check for this species in other resources is more closely related than other Fringillidae check for this species in other resources species.Our results support the view that Latoucheornis siemsseni check for this species in other resources is included in Genus Emberiza as E. siemsseni, and confirms that there is a close relationship between Mycerobas affinis check for this species in other resources and Eophona migratorius check for this species in other resources . This study also finds that Urocynchramus pylzowi check for this species in other resources is distantly related to Uragus sibiricus check for this species in other resources , but Uragus sibiricus and Carpodacus check for this species in other resources are closely related. The result also supports that fringillids and emberizids can be listed into two subfamilies under the family Fringillidae: Fringillinae and Emberizinae.
