This chapter examines the taxonomic relationships of the genus Passer, as well as the species boundaries of the House Sparrow with particular reference to the taxonomic position of the “Italian” Sparrow (a well-marked population thought to be the result of hybridization between House Sparrows and Spanish Sparrows). The geographic distribution of the House Sparrow is also described, including the history of introductions of the species. The rate of range expansion following introductions is also discussed.

Keywords:   species, taxonomy, geographic distribution, hybridization, introduction, Italian Sparrow, range expansion, Passer
