Taxonomy details for Birds (Class Aves)

Relationship: Deviation

World Register of Marine Species iNaturalist.org
Class Aves (parent: Superclass Tetrapoda) Alternate position Class Aves (parent: Subphylum Vertebrata)

WoRMs treats Aves as a child of the Tetrapoda which is a child of the Gnathostomata which is a child of the Vertebrates. iNat rather grafts Aves directly to Vertebrata. These are monophyletic groups so they should probably be added at some point.
