    Description

    RECENT HURRICANES have raised concerns regarding the fate of many Caribbean birds, especially for rare, single island endemic species. Although Caribbean birds and their habitats have evolved in an area with a high hurricane frequency and are assumed to be relatively resilient to storm effects, habitat loss and degradation and various other human impacts may place certain species at risk to hurricanes. This symposium was designed to review knowledge regarding hurricane effects on birds and their habitats; dispel myths; identify information needs; review pre- and post- hurricane monitoring and census methods; and identify population and habitat management options to ameliorate storm effects. The symposium identified the species at greatest risk to hurricane impacts, the pre-hurricane information needs, and the potential post-hurricane management
