Scientific classification

BLACK STORK (BS)

Scientific classification
- class: Aves (birds)
- order: Ciconiiformes (wading birds)
- family: Ciconiidae (6 families/groups)
- genus: Ciconia (8 genera/groups)
- species: Ciconia nigra

- In Europe they are white storks (Ciconia ciconia) and black storks (Ciconia nigra), they are different (!) species

- The black stork was long thought to be most closely related to the white stork (C. ciconia). However, genetic analysis via DNA–DNA hybridization and mitochondrial cytochrome b DNA by Beth Slikas in 1997 found that it was basal (an early offshoot) in the genus Ciconia.

- To the European white stork (C. ciconia) is closely related and resembles the oriental stork (Ciconia boyciana), of which it was formerly often treated as a subspecies (current classification: species Ciconia ciconia - subspecies Ciconia ciconia ciconia/the european white stork and Ciconia ciconia asiatica)
