Field work in New Zealand
Avineck project coordinator Anick Abourachid and our collaborator Pauline Provini are in the field in New Zealand to work on the enigmatic kiwi.
Kiwis (Order Struthioniformes, family Apterygidae) are endemic to the three major islands of New Zealand. These flightless, nocturnal birds are quite unique and the researchers aim at better understanding their anatomy.
Stay tuned for more results on this project on birds!
