Clades

Columbimorphae is a clade discovered by genome analysis that includes birds of the orders Columbiformes (pigeons and doves), Pteroclidiformes (sandgrouses), and Mesitornithiformes (mesites).[1] Previous analyses have also recovered this grouping,[2][3][4] although the exact relationships differ. Some studies indicate a sister relationship between sandgrouse and pigeons (the traditional view)[3][5][6] while other studies favor a sister grouping of mesites and sandgrouse instead.[1][4]
