About this book

Language: English

The Black Shaheen Falcon, also known as the Indian Peregrine Falcon, is discussed here by using morphological parameters including plumage coloration and pattern. Also discussed is the geographic variation within the subspecies, with DNA sequencing used to allow conclusions to be drawn between the phylogenetic relationships of peregrine subspecies. Historical data and records from the black shaheen in Sri Lanka as early as from 1876 until 2000 are also presented and analysed.
