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.
