DescriptionWe briefly review concepts in landscape ecology and discuss their relevance to the conservation and management of neotropical migrant landbirds. We then integrate a landscape perspective into a spatially-hierarchical framework for conservation and management planning for neotropical migrant landbirds (and other biota). The framework outlines a comprehensive approach by which managers can develop plans based on (1) assessing the composition and interspersion of habitats important to species of current or future concern at a variety of spatial and temporal scales by generating and using data with different levels of resolution, and (2) assessing and modeling population dynamics and related ecological processes. We reference our paper throughout with selected studies of birds on temperate breeding areas, and to a more limited extent, on migration and neotropical wintering areas.
