Priorities for Future Research

Emerald-chinned Hummingbird is relativly widespread, but it is small, inconspicuous, and its natural history is very poorly known. Very little is known about its foraging ecology, its breeding biology, and about demographic factors such as life span and survivorship, dispersal, or population regulation. Although Emerald-chinned Hummingbird currently is not regarded as threatened, more attention should be paid to the levels of habitat loss or fragmentation within its range, and to its tolerance for habitat disturbance.
