Another subspecies of Short-toed Eagle determined

Nov 30, 2017 / Comment

Quite many articles dedicated to Short-toed Eagle are reprsented on the ResearchGate and not yet described on our site. Currently, we’d like to mark one, which is very fresh, raising a topic of georgaphic variations at the farthest border of the species range /map/ and questioning again the concept of Circaetus gallicus as a monotypic species:

Shengrong Nathaniel NG, Les CHRISTIDIS, Jerry OLSEN, Janette NORMAN, Frank E. RHEINDT, 2017 – A new subspecies of Short-toed Snake-eagle from Wallacea determined from morphological and DNA comparison // Zootaxa, Vol. 4358, No. 2: pp. 365–374. (En).

The abstract of the paper available now is of great interest itself.


Some notes on Short-toed Eagle in old works

These old short texts have been found recently on the Net:

• Bas van Balen, A. R. Compost, 1989 – Overlooked evidence of the Short-toed Eagle Circaetus gallicus on Java // Kukila. Vol. 4 – No 1-2 – P. 44-46. – Short-toed Eagle. file (En) /map/;

• Wolfgang Rowold & Harald Weidener, 1999 – Beobachtung eines Schlangenadlers (Circaetus gallicus (Gmel.,1788)) in Marienmünster, Krs. Höxter [Observation of the Short-toed Eagle in Marienmünster] // Egge-Weser. Bd. 12. – S. 61. – Short-toed Eagle. file (De) /map/.

And a work on flight properties of Palearctic Eagles, where Short-toed Eagle is one of the research objects:
