White-bibbed Manakin Corapipo leucorrhoa

  • Order: Passeriformes
  • Family: Pipridae
  • Monotypic
  • Authors: Juan Alejandro Morales-Betancourt

Priorities for Future Research

The White-bibbed Manakin is a “poorly known species” (Prum 1998). This species is not well known in its South American range, where is found in foothills and where much of its original forest has been destroyed (Ridgley and Tudor 1994). Since populations of White-bibbed Manakin appear to be decreasing (BirdLife International 2012), it is important to evaluate population trends in those habitats that are being fragmented, such as tropical dry forests in Cauca Valley in Colombia (Castaño-Villa et al. 2008). Defining routes and seasons of altitudinal movements could contribute to design strategies to manage landscape and to establish connectivity between forest patches and reserves.
