Classification of Green Peacock

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

If we tried to establish a classification of Peacock Green (I'm only a student in this topic)!
On this forum there are people who are able .....trying to put something on 'paper'!caf
A few questions:
All  green peacocks are 'Pavo'?idunno
All green peacocks are 'muticus'?
When you say 'antiqus', the scientific name is Pavo muticus antiqus or Pavo muticus imperator antiqus?
Pavo spicifer spicifer exist ?
Ditto with Pavo javanensis javanensis  - I know Pavo javanensis balurani I ?


Can be put by country!

no Dani,

Resolution's data has supported splitting Green Peafowl into several distinct species. Wolfgang supports his theory but takes a more conservative approach putting them into subspecies.

Each species, such as imperator, spicifer, have their own subspecies within.

Dani,
          Frank is correct, there are 15 races and 6 subspecies. Frank is studying about races & subspecies of dragonbirds.
