Monitoring 2008 – 2009

30 November, 1999


We carried out sampling chrysoptera Vermivora winter for the 2009 season. Based on a model of potential distribution of species using MAXENT is 10Km2 selected 34 plots in four countries, where the probability of occurrence of the species was = 0.8.Se A total of 919 surveys in 350 point counts were obtained A total of 194 new records of the species. The habitat where it occurred most comments was the secondary forest with about 60% of the records, followed by primary forest, 19.44% and Agroecosystems, 21.3%. Chi square test confirmed that the observation frequency distribution was not similar between the landscape units (X2 = 63.29, P 0.0001) and no preference for secondary forest on its bid (Neu, W = 1.11), for it is suggested that this type of habitat, including woodland pastures and patches of forest in early successional states, are used more frequently than expected.

We performed a new model of potential distribution of the species by adding new records, which proves that the best areas with the highest probability of occurrence are related to the mountainous areas of central and northern South America.

This sampling was repeated during the year 2009/2010, 2011/2012 and the data were used to develop the plan for conservation of the species in their breeding territories.

Additionally, various activities were carried out awareness and environmental education and printed 3,000 copies of a new post about the species where it reinforces the idea of ??connectivity between different countries that are part of its range and the importance of joint efforts and develop coordinated conservation action to ensure their protection. 400 shirts were printed with the logo of Alliance, 10,000 stickers with the photo of the Species and 2.500 in transparent vinyl stickers with the logo and web page address. All the educational material was made for the project can be downloaded from the website

So that other countries, our partners and the wider community can use as a tool for education and awareness by multiplying the efforts we make in this field.
