We are extremely grateful to the large number of recordists who have made available recordings to us directly or indirectly through online databases. We thank Fred van Gessel, Murray Lord and David Stewart for generously providing us with sound recordings and kind assistance. Tissue samples for the DNA analyses were kindly provided by Museum Victoria and the West Australian Museum. Jeremy Austin provided technical assistance in the generation of some of the sequence data. We thank Ron Johnstone and Jerry Olsen for providing literature and responding to our many questions on Wallacean Ninox over the years. We also appreciate the help and support received from Pei Wei Lim, Elize Ng, Keren Sadanandan, Nathaniel Ng and Emilie Cros. This research was funded by grants from the National University of Singapore Department of Biological Sciences as well as the Singapore Ministry of Education [grant numbers WBS R-154-000-570-133 and WBS R-154-000-658-112].
