Abstract

Alula Taibel has been an Italian zoologist of Austrian- Yemenite origin. After having served the Italian Army, he graduated in Natural Sciences at Bologna University in 1925. He was later director of the Poultry Station at Rovigo and scientific director of the Turin Zoological Garden. As to our knowledge no overview of his scientific work has never been published, a synthesis is here presented together with an almost complete list of his papers. Taibel has been one of the major experts on the Galliformes of the Cracidae family and therefore his papers on them are of particular relevance for ornithologists.
