Priorities for Future Research


• Reliable censuses of the numbers of pairs in Middle Eastern and Asian countries are unquestionably needed.

• The vocal repertoire of the Cinereous Vulture is poorly known; bioacoustic studies of the species’ vocalizations and their associated behavioral and ecological contexts are badly needed.

• The process of mate selection and the traits preferred by males or females are unknown.

• There is no information based on banded individuals on the duration of the pair bond in either sex.

• There is no information about lifetime reproductive success.

• Data on life span in males and females are lacking.
