Priorities for Future Research

For future reserach, questions addressing the phylogenetic placement of  the Capuchinbird within the family Cotingidae would be extremely useful. While the behavior has been studied quite extensively, it has been done so in a small part of its overall range. Studies regarding variation in behavior and morphology across its range have not be assessed, and should in the future.
