Two new species of Kaempferia subgenus Protanthium (Zingiberaceae) from Northern Thailand

Nattapon Nopporncharoenkul, Woranuch Laongsri & Thaya Jenjittikul
Kaempferia aurora Noppornch. & Jenjitt., from Tak province near the Thailand-Myanmar border, and K. caespitosa Noppornch. & Jenjitt., from Lampang province, Northern Thailand, are described as new species of subgenus Protanthium (Horan.) Baker. The diagnostic characters are clearly compared with the similar species. Detailed illustrations, photographs of floral dissection, information of phenology, distribution and ecology, and preliminary conservation status are provided for each new taxon. An identification key to the species of Kaempferia subgen. Protanthium...

The interplay of color and bioacoustic traits in the differentiation of a Southeast Asian songbird complex

Chyi Yin Gwee, Qiao Le Lee, Simon Mahood, Le Manh Hung, Robert Tizard, Krairat Eiamampai, Philip Round & Frank Rheindt
Morphological traits have served generations of biologists as a taxonomic indicator, and have been the main basis for defining and classifying species diversity for centuries. A quantitative integration of behavioural characters, such as vocalizations, in studies on biotic differentiation has arisen more recently, and the relative importance of these different traits in the diversification process remains poorly understood. To provide a framework within which to interpret the evolutionary interplay between morphological and behavioral traits, we...

Complex post-breeding moult strategies in a songbird migrating along the East Asian flyway, the Pallas’s Grasshopper Warbler Locustella certhiola

Wieland Heim, Hans-Jürgen Eilts, Philip D. Round, Oleg Bourski, Batmunkh Davaasuren, Tuvshinjargal Erdenechimeg & Jong-Gil Park
Moult strategies have received relatively little attention in current ornithology, and knowledge concerning the evolution, variability and extent of moult is sparse in many bird species. This is especially true for East Asian Locustella species where assumptions on moult patterns are based on incomplete information. We provide evidence indicating a complex post-breeding moult strategy and variable moult extent among Pallas’s Grasshopper Warbler Locustella certhiola, based on data from six ringing sites situated along its flyway...
