Unfortunately, the publisher printed parts of the introduction and Fig. 1a with errors

The end of the second paragraph in the introduction was printed incorrectly in italics. Moreover, after the tribe Carduelini “Emphasis>” was inadvertently added to the text

Correct Fig. 1a, b is given here: Fig. 1

a Maximum likelihood-based tree showing approximate calculations on the time of appearance of genera Carduelis and Rhodopechys lineages. This linearized tree was constructed by assuming that evolutionary rates between lineages may be different (Thorne et al. 1998). PARAMCLOCK PAUP command was used for tree building. Divergence times were estimated assuming an evolutionary rate of 0.8% substitutions per site and million years, found by Fleischer et al. (1998). This rate is based on the cyt b sequence divergence of Hawaiian drepanidines, and external geological calibration points. Groups of taxa are similar to those obtained in the parsimony (see Fi
