|Title||Current studies on megapode phylogeny|
|Keywords||Megapodiidae; interfamilial relationships; intrafamilial relationships.|
|Abstract||Hypotheses regarding the phylogenetic relationships between megapodes and other birds are reviewed, and it is concluded that the available evidence supports a sistergroup relationship between megapodes and all other galliforms. Current studies in this direction are discussed. The resolvement of intrafamilial relationships has gained less attention so far and the most probable hypothesis based on traditional characters is presented.|
