Priorities for Future Research

Key priorities for further research on Mishana Tyrannulet include:

  • Genetic sampling, quantitative vocal analysis, and playback experiments to clarify the taxonomic status of the population in the Mayo Valley in San Martín.
  • Surveys across the poor-soil forests of northern Peru (including ridgetop forest and peatland forest) to determine the true extent of the distribution of the population in Nanay and Tigre river basins.
  • Formal surveys to understand the use of primary versus secondary habitats and the consequences of deforestation for the Mayo Valley population.
  • All manner of behavioral studies, demographic studies, and descriptions of the reproductive biology.
