Priorities for Future Research

With heavy trapping and declines in virtually every part of its range, extensive study about its current population and status is urgently needed. Moreover, many information regarding its general biology is also missing or derived from pre-split taxa, including breeding time, breeding behavior, daily behavior, growth, social behavior, territoriality, dispersal and mortality. Finally, a confirmation regarding the status of Sumatran buxtoni is also needed to further understand the complicated biogeography of Sundaland's white-eye.
