The Global Owl Project
Title: The Global Owl Project
Creator: Johnson, David H. [principal investigator]
Abstract: This project proposes a multi-year, worldwide project to resolve foundational aspects of taxonomy and conservation for the world’s owls. Work under this project is focused on six tasks: develop scientifically robust inventory techniques for locating owls and their nests; analyze the molecular systematics and phylogeny of owls using basically mtDNA but also ncDNA; acquire high-quality recordings of owl vocalizations, to assist in species identification; conduct analysis of the morphological aspects on new owl taxa found, to assist in identification; refine maps of owl species distributions; distribute project information via internet pages, publications, and symposia to a very wide audience, including national and international biodiversity programs.
