Science - Environment & Ecology / Cantabrian mountains and the Cantabrian capercaillie
Spanish term or phrase: ave genéticamente original
Hello,

I would like some help with this phrase.

Here is the sentence in which it appears:

XXXXX, autor principal del estudio, confirma a XXXX que le urogallo cantábrico [Cantabrian capercaillie], ave genéticamente original y emblemática de los bosques montanos, ha cambiado sus hábitos....

Thank you!

Explanation:
Hi Liz,

Genetically unique seems to be a relatively common expression.

Personally, I think I'd skip the "ave" as it ought to be absolutely obvious.

Otherwise, "a bird that/which is..."

E.g.:

The idea of it being genetically unique to this area is backed up on this website:

Los urogallos cantábricos constituyen una población aislada de Tetrao urogallus. Habitan en los bosques montanos de la Cordillera Cantábrica, por encima de 800 m s.n.m. La población de urogallos más cercana está en los Pirineos, a más de 300 km, lo que hace inviable el intercambio de individuos entre ambas.

Just found that the expression "genetically distinct" is even more common.

a subspecies endemic to this region


Explanation:
(Tetrao urogallus cantrabricus is) 'a subspecies endemic to this region'

Or you could even say something like:

'a distinct clade with respect to other European populations'
