|Title||What we don’t know about megapodes|
|Keywords||Megapodiidae; mating systems; vocalization; conservation; future studies|
|Abstract||While the growth in megapode studies has been extraordinary, much remains to be done. Further work is especially crucial if the many conservation projects that are planned and underway are to be based on a sound and reliable base of understanding. Thus, the ten projects proposed here are not directly conservation-orientated. Rather, they are aimed at elucidating aspects and issues that are needed for a more complete understanding of these remarkable birds. In particular, a plea is made for high quality natural history and for cultural sensitivity and awareness.|
