Priorities for Future Research


Research on species-specific ecology

Despite the species' wide distribution, very little detail is known about most aspects of this species' biology and ecology.


The proposed specific status of the northern form T. c. unirufa requires study, and the variation within that subspecies, particularly the taxonomic status of the Negros population, remains to be studied.


Whether the species still exists on Negros and Dinagat should be investigated.
