Genetic Introgression in birds - paper (1 Viewer)

This is an exciting review and just the beginning of a reassessment of the extent and dynamics of genetic introgression in birds. Two of the bottom lines (for me) are:

1. Beware of splitting (false) paraphyletic taxa too hastily.

2. What exactly then is "essential reproductive isolation"?

Frank,
Evgeniy Panov agrees with your Point 1 from a different direction in: "Comparative Ethology and Molecular Genetics as Tools for Phylogenetic Reconstructions: The Example of the Genus Oenanthe" Biology Bulletin, 2011, 38 (8): 809–820.
