National Museum of Natural History scientist Gary Graves holds the type specimen of the Swainson’s warbler, the original specimen that John James Audubon used to describe the new species in 1834. In October 2014, Graves published a new study compiling 20 years of research that suggests forests managed as short-rotation pine plantations could support the majority of Swainson’s warbler breeding populations by the end of the 21st century.
