Priorities for Future Research

Data is highly needed in the majority of fields pertaining to this species. Research needs to be focused on territory and movement patterns. We need to clearly identify the few yet stable groups of Crowned Solitary Eagles that we know of in an effort to help maintain and bolster the current populations. Understanding the ecological necessities these eagles depend on will help our future conservation efforts. Extensive research into how we affect this species behavior, territory, and movement is needed so we can quantify our impact vs. environmental impacts on the current populations (Maceda 2007).
