Phylogenetic relationships of the birds-of-paradise. The 50% majority rule consensus tree obtained from the analyses of the combined data set (cytochrome b, ornithine decarboxylase introns 6 and 7, and glyceraldehyde-3-phosphate dehydrogenase intron 11). Posterior probability values are indicated above the nodes, posterior probability values of 1.00 are indicated with an asterisk. Male display strategies in core birds-of-paradise according to (Frith and Behler 1998) are indicated by boxes to the right of the taxon names (red = lek, blue = exploded lek, black = solitary). Question marks to the right of the boxes indicate that display strategy is not fully established.
