Campylopterus falcatus


To elaborate our model we removed uncertain localities such as those localities with no coordinates and all records with coordinates laying down in sites with estimated elevations below 232 m and above 3,436 m.

The habitat suitability model generated in Maxent showed a areas suitable in climatic terms for this species in the southern half of the Western and Central Andes and serrania de San Lucas. With some exceptions, these areas are not known to be occupied by the species and were excluded from the potential distribution map of this hummingbird.

Assuming that the distribution of the species may have filled the complete climatic model generated, its distribution today in remnants of forest is about 54,245 km2, which corresponds to a loss of 64 % of its potential original distribution due to deforestation. Although it is a rare species along its distribution, apparently this species uses secondary vegetation and plantations and therefore possibly deforestation has not negatively affected greatly its populations. Nevertheless, it is in great need of further research of its ecology to define better the threats to its populations.
