glossy birds (Neornithes) are represented via massive lineages, the Palaeognathae (Tinamiformes + Ratitae) and the Neognathae [Galloanserae + Neoaves (Metaves + Coronoaves)]. either clades sum nearly 10,000 species of which 60% are Passeriformes (the such a lot diversified clade of terrestrial vertebrates). A comparability among the prior and the current finds a fancy and hallmarked evolutionary and biogeographic historical past which might have began over sixty five million years in the past. For South the United States (SA) this comprises: (1) the presence of taxa with doubtful affinities and the absence of Passeriformes in the course of the Paleogene; (2) a revolutionary and sped up raise of the species beginning on the Neogene (Miocene); (3) vital extinct lineages (e.g. Phorusrhacidae, Teratornithidae) that migrate to North the United States after the emerging of the Panamá isthmus; (4) teams with significant diversification within the Neogene that survives these days represented by means of scarce species endemic of SA (Cariamidae) or that inhabits often within the southern hemisphere (Anhingidae); (5) very varied dwelling teams with scarce (e.g., Passeriformes) or none (e.g., Apodiformes) fossil list in SA, which stem-groups are registered in Europe. it seems that, the adjustments in variety of the south American Neornithes were the results of successive radiation, biogeographic connections with North the United States and in a minor scale, a few extinctions. the hole of the Drake´s passage and the incidence of the circumpolar Antarctic move aren't adequate motives to give an explanation for the hugely disparity among the weddelians penguins (Sphenisciformes) of Antartica and people of the patagonian Atlantic Ocean.
