Our applied conservation research on managing tropical montane forest bird communities in agricultural landscapes is now published in Conservation Biology. We provide precise recommendations for retaining habitat features in tropical countrysides and how they support the retention of avian biodiversity. We also conduced a pan-Andean analysis of species-specific sensitivity to anthropogenic disturbance for 800+ Andean bird species. The paper is Open Access and a full Spanish translation is provided in the supplementary material. We also provide extensive tables of species-specific sensitivity assessments in the Appendices. The Florida Museum wrote up a lovely press release.
