[…] We combined our data with sequences of described morphospecies of avian haemosporidian parasites obtained from GenBank. Clustal W (Larkin et al. ), implemented in BioEdit v. 7.1.7 (Hall ) was used to align sequences. The best fit model of DNA evolution was determined with jModelTest2 (Guindon and Gascuel ; Darriba et al. ). A GTR + I + Γ model was used to reconstruct a maximum‐likelihood phylogeny and bootstrap analysis (1000 pseudoreplicates) in MEGA 5 (Tamura et al. ). […]
