The top priority should be to identify the Adelaide’s Warbler’s vulnerability to global climate change. This might include research on their reproductive success and survival in different habitat types, and under different rainfall patterns. Rainfall patterns differ under El Niño (relatively dry) and La Niña (relatively wet) conditions (Diaz 1996); El Niño years could be a good proxy for future conditions under global climate change. Several areas of Adelaide’s Warbler behavior and life history could also use further research, but they are a relatively well-studied species compared to many tropical birds.
