TUMBESIAN BIOME ENDEMICS & NEAR ENDEMICS SPECIES LIST

 

Birding Site Guide

BENES lists are unique to BSG and were created for the website. 

 

This list contains all species endemic to or difficult to find outside of, this ecoregion. They differ importantly from Endemic Bird Areas because the size of the area they cover is the whole ecoregion, whereas EBA are restricted to 50,000km2, they furthermore not only include all endemic species but also all other species which are difficult to observe outside the individual biomes (this naturally includes near-endemics and any other more widespread threatened or near-threatened species). This was quite deliberately done to provide ready-made lists for birders of all scarce species they could expect to see in the region.

 

Altitude zones (m): 0-750 lowland, 750-1,250 foothill, 1,250-1,750 lower montane, 1,750-3,000 montane, 3,000+ elfin etc For information on altitude terminology, threatened status terms and references used refer to About Biogeography and References Used By BSG globally threatened NT near threatened, VU vulnerable, EN endangered, CR critical
