  • The avifaunas of the islands off the coasts of Panama have especially rich potential for island biogeography. All these islands are continental and were once continuous with the mainland, so that the species on each island are presumably a subset of the avifaunas found on the adjacent mainland, although each major island group has relictual species that do not occur elsewhere in Panama. The process of isolation invariably reduces species diversity and it become important to document which… CONTINUE READING
