Priorities for Future Research

Cinnamon-breasted Tody-Tyrant was discovered and described only recently; it is known from few localities, and almost all aspects of its natural history are unknown. Perhaps the highest research priorities for this species are to survey for additional sites where it may be present, to document the population density and estimate to size of the global population, and to assess the rate of habitat loss or degradation within its range. There also is no information on such topics as age at diet, reproduction, first breeding, life span and survivorship, dispersal,and population regulation of Cinnamon-breasted Tody-Tyrant.
