Abstract

Juan Mula Laguna used the case of the southern black-throated finch to apply tools to inform the conservation of rare and poorly-known species. Mula Laguna created a list of investment priorities for a due update of the current Recovery Plan, a spatial classification of habitat value, and refuted hypotheses about a diet-driven decline.
