Holocene vertebrate assemblages provide the first evidence for the presence of the barn owl (Tytonidae, Tyto alba) on Socotra Island (Yemen)

Another cave-derived result shows the presence of the barn owl (Tyto albo) once flying around on the island! The article in Geobios clarifies Hope carbon dating can shed more light on the exact period?

Lot's of caves, lot's of faunal remains, lot's of work...

Congrats to the Italian team!
