Tapaculos of the genus Scytalopus are secretive birds which tunnel like mice through dense understory of humid forest in the Andes, Central America, and south-eastern Brazil. Their agoraphobic habits make Scytalopus species highly sensitive to habitat discontinuities, so they are well suited for analyzing diversification patterns in montane forest biota… CONTINUE READING
