Monograph on this bird species. The Cracidae are an ancient group related to the Australasian Mound-builders. They are sometimes united with these in a distinct order, “Craciformes”, but this is not supported by more recent research which suggests that either is a well-marked, basal lineage of Galliformes. Sclater is also part author of “Book of Antelopes” (see Mendelssohn)
