An annotated avian inventory of the Brazilian state of Alagoas, one of the world’s most threatened avifauna
The northeast Brazilian state of Alagoas harbors a rather diverse, and one of the world’s most threatened, avifauna. However, the knowledge about its avifauna is currently scattered on several
An updated checklist of the birds of Rio Grande do Norte, Brazil, with comments on new, rare, and unconfirmed species
Summary. We present a detailed bird list for the north-east Brazilian state of Rio Grande do Norte. This is the first inventory of the avifauna of the state that complies with strict criteria as to
History, distribution, and seasonal abundance of the Least Tern Sternula antillarum (Aves: Charadriiformes: Sternidae) in Brazil
The Cajuais Bank itself (and adjacent beaches and inland environments) holds the largest numbers of Least Terns recorded in Brazil, thus being one of the most significant sites along the migratory route of the species.
An overview of migratory birds in Brazil
Of the 1,919 species of birds recorded in Brazil, 198 (10.3%) are migratory, and 127 (64%) were classified as Migratory and 71 (36%) as Partially Migratories, while a few species wereclassified as Vagrant and eight could not be defined due to limited information available, or due to conflicting data.

Spatial ecology, phenological variability and moulting patterns of the Endangered Atlantic petrel Pterodroma incerta
Adult phenology, habitat preferences and at-sea activity patterns for each phenological phase of the annual cycle and current knowledge about its distribution are refined, by using light-level geolocators on 13 adults over 1−3 consecutive years.
