Description

There is a substantial number of Ethiopian bird species, some of them endemic, that often are little-known in terms of distribution, lifestyle and threats. In this project we study selected bird forms in the field and in the museum.

A sub-project deals with endemic francolins, ground-dwelling landfowl species of the mountainous regions of Ethiopia.
