    Description

    Loss of tropical broadleaved forests and concurrent population declines of long-distance migratory birds in temperate breeding areas have been closely linked in both scientific and popular literature; however, little evidence of a causal association currently exists. We review the current land use situation in the neotropics, the projected outcome of deforestation early in the 21st century, and the extent of knowledge of migratory bird habitat use on the wintering grounds. From that information, we assess the likely current and future impact of deforestation on migratory birds, and examine land use practices that may be compatible with the concept of conservation of those species.
