Leaf-warblers are small insectivorous birds belonging to the genus "Phylloscopus". This was placed in the "wastebin" Old World warbler family, but is now moved into a new family Phylloscopidae (Alström "et al." 2006). There are presently some 55 species in the genus, but this composition makes it polyphyletic with regards to "Seicercus". Thus, several species will soon be moved out of the present genus.

These are active, constantly moving, warblers always associated with trees, though normally in fairly open woodland rather than tight plantations. They occur from top canopy to undershrubs. Most of the species are markedly territorial both in their summer and winter quarters.

Most are greenish or brownish above and off-white or yellowish below. Compared to some other "warblers", their songs are very simple

Species breeding in temperate regions are usually strongly migratory.
