Priorities for Future Research

The life history of Darwin's Nothura is relatively well known, compared to many other species of tinamou, although most of the information on this species is based on only a few studies. There still is little information for Darwin's Nothura on topics such as territoriality, density, lifespan, and population regulation, all of which are excellent topics for further research.
