Priorities for Future Research

Very little is known about some fundamental aspects of the natural history of the Green Ibis, such as the diet, and the reproductive biology is relatively poorly known as well. Future research should focus on the demography, taxonomy, and human impacts (if any) for Mesembrinibis cayennensis.
