Shallow population structure and shared phylogeographic and demographic patterns in seven Amazonian White-Sand ecosystems birds

João Marcos Guimarães Capurucho, Mary Ashley, Cintia Cornelius, Sérgio Borges, Camila Ribas & John Bates
White-sand ecosystems (WSE) have a patchy distribution throughout Amazonia and harbor a specialized community of birds. The patchiness of WSE lead to the expectation of highly fragmented and isolated populations across Amazonia. Additionally, the sandy substrate could render these ecosystems vulnerable climatic changes. We performed a comparative phylogeographic study of seven WSE birds using Ultra-conserved elements to evaluate their relation to Amazonian environmental and landscape history and the occurrence of shared patterns. Genetic structure varied...
