LSU research responsible for naming 15 new species of Amazonian birds
Date:8/28/2013

So Paulo and LSUMNS, and today LSUMNS and Brazilian graduate students are privileged to be working together, learning from each other as they study some of the most complex speciation dynamics on Earth."

Other ornithologists involved in the project include Mario Cohn-Haft of the Instituto Nacional de Pesquisas da Amaznia in Manaus and Alexandre Aleixo of the Museu Paraense Emlio Goeldi in Belm, both received their Ph.D.s at LSU from the Department of Biological Sciences. Also an author on many of the papers is Lus Fabio Silveira of the Museu de Zoologia da Universidade de So Paulo, which has a formal agreement for collaborative field and laboratory research with the LSUMNS. More than 30 authors participated in the 15 species descriptions, each peer-reviewed as an independent scientific paper. Authors also include ornithologists from Colombia, Argentina and the United Kingdom. Most of the new species were discovered by Whitney and Cohn-Haft by detecting differences in their songs and calls in the field.
