Glossary of Avian Terms
For Use in Avian Conservation Biology.
This glossary provides standard definitions for many of the terms used in avian
conservation biology. We compiled these definitions to assist communication
among researchers, managers, and others involved in the Neotropical Migratory
Bird Conservation Program, also known as Partners in Flight. We used existing
glossaries and recent literature to prepare this glossary. Many definitions were
taken verbatim from the cited source material. Others were modified slightly to
clarify the meaning.

Single Gene Traits of the Turkey
The program has been constructed in an attempt to provide in a graphic
format, colored photographic images where possible, the various phenotypic
expressions of single gene mutations and other genetic conditions that have been
described in the turkey which may have economic significance. References to
biochemical and immunological reports are not considered in this directory. The
entries listed within categories are in alphabetical order. This production was
the result of an ongoing research program in turkey genetics at the Oregon
Agricultural Experiment Station and as a contribution to the Southern Regional
Project S-213 in which Oregon was a participant.
