Does anyone know what species the bird pictured in the taxobox is?jimfbleak 13:24 Apr 8, 2003 (UTC)
I took a picture of a Red-billed Hornbill in the Kruger National Park. The cropped version is at Commons:Image:Red_Hornbill_eating_insect.jpg, if you think it's worth adding. (I think it is, but don't want to replace it: maybe I'm biased). If you want a bit of context (just some out-of-focus grass) put a note on my talk page. --Taejo 16:34, 1 September 2005 (UTC)
Merge Bucerotiformes here?
Set up merge request. Reasons: Article topic is redundant (the only difference is the taxonomic level). Some information from Bucerotiformes is useful. Sibley-Ahlquist's "DNA evidence" is generally considered insufficient for taxonomic decisions nowadays. It gives a reasonable estimate of relatinships, but is entirely misleading when it comes to elevationg families to the order level. Besides, whether it is correctly referred to as "evidence" (as opposed to "data") is arguable; the raw data is evidence, but the conclusions are inference. NB: It is generally good to avoid imprecise statements like "DNA evidence" (meaning that it is to be preferred to cite sources and define what exactly was analyzed and how). The difference between what is researched in a DNA-DNA hybridization analysis (a fairly crude measure of overall genomical similarity, which is why Accipitridae cannot be tackled thus) and a mtDNA sequence analysis (an estimate of maternal ancestry, which is why the Anas ducks can hardly be analyzed thus) is as large as between either and a morphological analysis. DNA-DNA hybridization is very much a thing of the past; hardly any serious scientist does it anymore today. Dysmorodrepanis 15:37, 5 February 2007 (UTC)
are writhed billed hornbill and writhed hornbill supposed to lead to the same page?
See section title. They seem to be the same species but I am uneducated in this area, so.. just making sure. Robin Chen 04:05, 28 June 2007 (UTC)
