Abstract Most of our knowledge of reproduction of wild parrots in the Neotropics comes from studies of tropical lowland species, with few studies addressing species of high-altitude forests. We studied the reproductive biology of Tucuman Parrots (Amazona tucumana) in north-western Argentina between 2004 and 2009. We obtained data on reproductive output for 86 nests and on causes of mortality for 94 nests. Mean clutch-size per nesting attempt was 3.6 eggs ± 1.0 (s.d.). Hatching success… Expand
Reproductive parameters of the Turquoise-fronted Parrot ( Amazona aestiva ) in the dry Chaco forest
TLDR
The results showed that the population of Turquoise-fronted Parrots in the dry Chaco forest has high values of clutch size and nestling survival, and low values of hatching success, however, some aspects of the breeding biology need more attention, especially if the species continues to be harvested.

Nest Survival and Predation in Blue-Fronted Parrots Amazona aestiva: Effects of Nesting Behaviour and Cavity Characteristics
TLDR
Temporal patterns and characteristics of the nest cavity explained most of the variation in nest survival in Blue-fronted Parrots, which highlights the relevance of including these covariates in future studies of nest survivalIn parrots, and has important management and conservation implications.

Nest site attributes and nesting outcome in the vulnerable eastern Regent Parrot (Polytelis anthopeplus monarchoides)
ABSTRACT The relationship between nest site characteristics and nest success is likely to be important in the conservation management of threatened cavity-nesting birds. The vulnerable eastern RegentExpand
Nest cavity characteristics, reproductive output and population trend of naturalised Amazon parrots in Germany
TLDR
This slow population growth in combination with the need for sufficiently large nest cavities may hinder a range expansion of this species in future years. Expand
Feeding Ecology and Key Food Resources for the Endemic and Threatened Tucuman Amazon Amazona tucumana in Argentina
Abstract. Food resource availability regulates population levels and reproductive success in several parrot species. Of the 59 threatened parrot species in the Neotropics, information on diet isExpand
Will representation targets based on area protect critical resources for the conservation of the Tucuman Parrot?
ABSTRACT The Tucuman Parrot (Amazona tucumana), which is restricted to Southern Yungas forest of Argentina and Bolivia, has not recovered from severe population declines in the 1980s. We assessedExpand
Current threats faced by Neotropical parrot populations
TLDR
This study gathered up-to-date information on threats affecting 192 populations of 96 Neotropical parrot species across 21 countries, and investigated associations among current threats and population trends. Expand
Biogeography of Speciation of Two Sister Species of Neotropical Amazona (Aves, Psittaciformes) Based on Mitochondrial Sequence Data
TLDR
The results enforce the current taxonomic status for these two Amazon species and support that A. pretrei and A. tucumana diverged with little or no gene flow approximately 1.3 million years ago, most likely after the establishment of a small population in the Southern Yungas forest by dispersion of a few founders from the A. Pretrei ancestral population. Expand

CLIMATIC VARIABILITY, NEST PREDATION, AND REPRODUCTIVE OUTPUT OF LILAC-CROWNED PARROTS (AMAZONA FINSCHI) IN TROPICAL DRY FOREST OF WESTERN MEXICO
TLDR
Both nest predation and food availability may limit parrot reproduction in tropical dry forests, with populations of threatened species in dry habitats being vulnerable to effects of climatic variability and habitat fragmentation. Expand

Nesting success and hatching survival of the Blue-fronted Amazon (Amazona aestiva) in the Pantanal of Mato Grosso do Sul, Brazil
TLDR
The reproductive biology of a population of Blue-fronted Amazons in the Pantanal of Mato Grosso do Sul State, Brazil, between 1997 and 1999 was studied, but nest survival and the proportion of fledglings per female were lower in 1998 than in 1997 and1999. Expand

CHICK GROWTH AND BREEDING SUCCESS OF THE BURROWING PARROT
TLDR
Burrowing Parrots in the study colony showed large variability in growth parameters between nestlings, possibly related to the hatching asynchrony observed, and allometric relationships for egg mass, clutch size, relative clutch mass, and nestling period of 29 wild psittaciform species are described and compared with the data from the Burrowers.

The breeding biology of Black-billed Parrot Amazona agilis and Yellow-billed Parrot Amazona collaria in Cockpit Country, Jamaica
TLDR
The majority of predation events were attributed to the endemic and Vulnerable yellowboa Epicrates subflavus, and predator–prey dynamics will challenge Jamaica’s natural resource managers to develop a more comprehensive attitude away from single-species conservation towards multiple species and their interactions in a complex habitat.

REPRODUCTIVE BEHAVIOR OF THE YELLOW-CROWNED PARROT (AMAZONA OCHROCEPHALA) IN WESTERN PANAMA
TLDR
Overall, the pool of breeding adults is likely made up of aging individuals that are not being replaced, setting the stage for a rapid population decline. Expand
Clutch Size, Nesting Success, and Predation on Nests of Neotropical Birds, Reviewed
TLDR
Failure to find consistent correlation between clutch size and number of nest attendants, diet, habitat, or type of nest leads us to seek some factor, or factors, that profoundly influence the reproduction of most birds of the humid neotropics. Expand

Comparisons of the demog- raphy of three populations of ptarmigan on an environmental gradient spanning alpine, subalpine, and arctic habitats provide evidence that even congeneric populations can exhibit a continuum between high reproductive and survivor life history strategies. Expand
