  • The 22 species of the genus O e n a n t h e( D i c k i n s o n 2003) constitute a conspicuous part of the avifauna of arid and desert ecosystems stretching from Morocco to China in the Palearctic and Afrotropical regions. These species share relatively similar ecological, behavioural (Cornwal lis 1975, Cramp 1988, Keith et al.1992, Panov 2005) and morphological characteristics (Tye 1989). This raises the issue of their ecological segregation where several species coexist (Whitaker 1905… CONTINUE READING
