Systematics in the phylogenomic era utilizes high-throughput sequencing to estimate phylogenies that are strongly-supported and likely accurate representations of evolutionary history. Efforts to understand avian evolution have been at the forefront of this phylogenomic revolution. However, most avian phylogenomic studies include non-overlapping taxa, making it difficult to understand the big picture of avian evolution. We used supertree methods to integrate available avian phylogenomic trees, generating a large-scale tree covering ~7% of bird species. Our methods are computationally efficient and will facilitate continual updates as more phylogenomic data accumulate. The Black Jacobin (Florisuga fusca) pictured is one of 707 taxa in our supertree.
