    Description

    The prioritization scheme identifies those birds at any locality on several geographic scales most in need of conservation action. Further, it suggests some of those actions that ought to be taken. Ranking criteria used to set priorities for Neotropical migratory landbirds measure characteristics of species that make them vulnerable to local and global extinction. Ranking parameters are global abundance, global extent of breeding and non-breeding distributions, threats during breeding and non-breeding periods, population trend, and the importance of the area under consideration for conservation of the species. Supplemental scores assigned to each species can indicate needs for greater survey and inventory, monitoring, research, or management effort. Species that share broadly classified habitats can be grouped to identify those habitats most in need of conservation attention. Management and acquisition strategies for efficient conservation of Neotropical migratory birds for a specific area, ranging in geographic scale from global to a small management unit, can then be developed.
