Abstract: The availability of suitable cavities and substrate for hole construction can limit the populations of birds that rely on tree hollows to reproduce. Several studies have focused on the effects of types of habitats, and types of human disturbances on cavities abundance, but the effect of successional stages in the Atlantic Forest has been poorly addressed. In this study we aimed to compare the availability and biometric characteristics of tree cavities between primary and mid-successional stage sites in an Atla… Show more

“…The future of the four parrot species analyzed in this study is threatened by two key environmental hazards: habitat loss and human exploitation [2]. A. brasiliensis, A. pretrei, A. rhodocorytha, and A. vinacea are all impacted by the destruction of the Atlantic Forest, especially because they nest in tree cavities that are much more common in old growth than in secondary forests [90]. Since the arrival of Europeans in South America, almost 90% of the original Atlantic Forest cover was lost [12].…”
