Abstract

The goal of this study was to determine if the primary nectarivorous species of Hawai’ian Honeycreepers were a monophyletic group. A well supported phylogeny, generated using cytB of the mitochondrial genome, indicates a resolved clade of nectivore honeycreepers distinct from other lineages
