Description: This report was prepared in support of the National Fish and Wildlife Foundation's Neotropical Migratory Bird Conservation Program and the USDA Forest Service's role in the program. Recent analyses of data on forest-dwelling species, many of which are neotropical migrants, show population declines in many North American areas. The literature review summarizes current information on population trends of neotropical migratory birds and the factors affecting migrant populations on the breeding and wintering grounds. Opportunities for research, monitoring, and conservation of these migrants on Forest Service lands are discussed.
Keywords: neotropical migratory birds, bird conservation, habitat fragmentation, tropical deforestation, bird population monitoring, Latin America, Caribbean Basin
