Demography and Populations

Parker et al. (1996) categorize the Beryl-spangled Tanager as "common" relative to other Neotropical birds, with its center of abundance in the middle montane elevational zone. In Venezuela, the Beryl-spangled Tanager is the commonest and most widespread species of Tangara (Hilty 2003). They are described as fairly common to common in Ecuador (Restall et al. 2007), common in Colombia (Restall et al. 2007), and fairly common in Peru (Schulenberg et al. 2007). There is no information related to topics such as age at first breeding, life span and survivorship, dispersal, or population regulation.
