Johnson's Tody-Flycatcher Poecilotriccus luluae

Version: 1.0 — Published July 3, 2014

Priorities for Future Research


Johnson's Tody-Flycatcher is a recently described species with a restricted geographic range; not surprisingly, therefore, its natural history remains poorly known. The diet is not known in any detail, and there is no information on its reproductive biology. There also are no quantitative data on population density or population trends. This is a topic that merits investigation, in view of ongoing deforesation within its range, and a lack of information on the limits of its tolerance for habitat disturbance. There also is no information for Johnson's Tody-Flycatcher on such topics as age at first breeding, life span and survivorship, dispersal, population regulation, molts, territoriality, and sexual behavior.
