3.2 NATIONAL LEVEL SELECT BIOGROUPS CONSERVATION TARGETS

In contrast with the previous section that deals with biodiversity and endemicity targets in a quantitative and very general level, this section deals with qualitative aspects of the better documented biological groups, specifying in some instances particular sites, in others broader areas and where available, specific species and their conservation status, which will allow for further identification of conservation targets at an ecoregional level.

3.2.1 BIRDS

KEY AREAS FOR THREATENED BIRDS IN THE NEOTROPICS Birdlife International (Wege D.C., A.J. Long, 1995)

According to the authors, Key Areas are the most important places currently known for globally threatened bird species of the Neotropics. These areas are important for the conservation of 280 threatened birds in the region where 596 Key Areas were identified. Fifty eight or 9.7% of all Neotropical Key Areas are present in Mexico. If adequately protected, these areas would help to ensure the conservation of 27 species which comprise 96% of Mexico’s threatened species including all those that are endemic to the country.
