Durante o mes de outubro de 2001 os autores percorreram 15 fragmentos florestais no Estado de Alagoas, Brasil. O objetivo principal foi localizar novas populacoes e obter mais dados sobre os taxons endemicos do ‘Centro Pernambuco’. Foram realizados censos em cada um dos fragmentos, que tambem foram analisados quanto ao estado geral de conservacao. Discute-se a presenca de especies-chave, como grandes frugivoros ou aquelas sensiveis a fragmentacao ou as mudancas na estrutura da vegetacao. Os…

Renewed hope for the threatened avian endemics of northeastern Brazil
Abstract.The forests north of the São Francisco River, in northeastern Brazil, conform a centre of endemism for plants and animals. Currently only 5% of its original forest cover is left, following
AVIFAUNA DO SOLO SAGRADO DO GUARAPIRANGA (SÃO PAULO, BRASIL)
AVIFAUNA OF THE SACRED SOIL OF GUARAPIRANGA (SÃO PAULO, BRAZIL): The avifauna of São Paulo, the largest Brazilian city, is one of the most studied in Brazil. However, some areas are lacking basic
The importance of isolated patches for maintaining local bird biodiversity and ecosystem function: a case study from the Pernambuco Center of Endemism, Northeast Brazil
TLDR
The bird community of the fragment is highly diversified, with endemic taxa and balanced trophic categories typical of preserved tropical forests, together with the occurrence of threatened species reinforces the importance of Mata do Cedro for the maintenance of local biodiversity and ecosystem functions.
Using MacKinnon lists and mist-netting simultaneously: maximizing the efficiency of rapid surveys of bird populations in the Atlantic Forest of northeastern Brazil
The Brazilian Atlantic Forest has been transformed into a mosaic of forest fragments that impacts local populations of vertebrates, in particular birds. In the state of Sergipe, Brazil, while only
Bird Extinctions in Brazil’s Atlantic Forest and How They Can Be Prevented
Bird species extinctions in the Atlantic Forest of Brazil have been predicted since the early 1990s, but it has become accepted wisdom that none have yet been documented. We revisit this question in
Birds of prey (Accipitriformes and Falconiformes) of Serra de Itabaiana National Park, Northeastern Brazil
Birds of prey are important for maintaining ecosystems, since they can regulate the populations of vertebrates and invertebrates. However, anthropic activities, like habitat fragmentation, have been
Species limits, patterns of secondary contact and a new species in the Trogon rufus complex (Aves: Trogonidae)
TLDR
The black-throated trogon, Trogon rufus, is a widespread, polytypic species-complex with a convoluted taxonomic history considered here as Critically Endangered, requiring urgent conservation actions.
A new species and five new records of chewing lice (Insecta: Phthiraptera: Ischnocera) from an isolated population of the solitary tinamou Tinamus solitarius (Aves: Tinamiformes).
TLDR
The first records of chewing lice from an isolated population of the solitary tinamou in the Pernambuco Centre of Endemism (PCE), Brazil are reported, and the discovery of H. guimaraesi is the first Brazilian example of a bird ectoparasite represented by two different species of the same genus living on two distinct populations of thesame host species.

The Importance of National Parks and Biological Reserves to Bird Conservation in the Atlantic Forest Region of Brazil
TLDR
The importance of protected areas in the Atlantic Forest Region of Brazil for the conservation of many of the most endangered bird species in the region is emphasized and a list of species is presented for four national parks and two biological reserves within theAtlantic Forest domain.
Composition and dynamics of the bird community of mata de Santa Genebra, Campinas, São Paulo, Brazil
A quali-quantitative survey of avifauna was earried out at the Santa Genebra forest reserve (MSG) in order to evaluate the current state of conservation of this important conservation area in the
CRYPTIC BIODIVERSITY: AN OVERLOOKED SPECIES AND NEW SUBSPECIES OF ANTBIRD (AVES: FORMICARIIDAE) WITH A REVISION OF CERCOMACRA TYRANNINA IN NORTHEASTERN
TLDR
A valid species and subspecies from two areas whose avifaunas are among the best known in tropical South America are recognized, demonstrating that the accurate cataloging of the planet's biodiversity will rely not only on expeditions to remote mountain valleys but also on careful analysis of specimens and information already at the authors' disposal.
Bird diversity and abundance in forest fragments and Eucalyptus plantations around an Atlantic forest reserve, Brazil
TLDR
Bird species richness at points in forest fragments did not decline with fragment size, distance from the reserve, or forest quality, however, forest in fragments was more heavily degraded than forest within the reserve and poor forest quality may be the cause of declines in some species.
Distribution of birds along an elevational gradient in the Atlantic forest of Brazil: implications for the conservation of endemic and endangered species
Summary In this study I compare bird communities along an elevational gradient in an Atlantic forest remnant (Pico do Corcovado in Ubatuba) in coastal Sao Paulo state, Brazil. Forests at low
Frugivory by Toucans (Ramphastidae) at Two Altitudes in the Atlantic Forest of Brazil1
Toucans are prominent components of the tropical American avifauna. Although these birds are very conspicuous, there are few ecological studies focusing on them. In this study, the diets of four
Long-Term Changes in the Avifauna of Barro Colorado Island, Panama, a Tropical Forest Isolate
Since its isolation from the mainland more than 85 years ago, 65 bird species have disappeared from Barro Colorado Island, Panama. Because of these extinctions the island is often used as a model for
Effects of palm heart harvesting on avian frugivores in the Atlantic rain forest of Brazil
TLDR
This result indicates that Euterpe palms in the lowland forests do not fulfil the role of keystone species, because they bear ripe fruits during the period of peak overall fruit availability and because birds may switch their diets to other food sources when palms are removed.
