Priorities for Future Research

Research priorities for this species should focus in the breeding ecology, demography, life history, and population rates to evaluate with more biological knowledge the conservation status of this endangered species. It is important to understand how the changes in habitat are affecting breeding and survival of this species. Conservation efforts could be effective if habitat degradation and deforestation could be drastically reduced or even reversed.
