Cinnamon-throated Woodcreeper (Dendrexetastes rufigula) photographed near Manaus, Amazonas, Brazil. In this volume, Ferreira et al. present a systematic review of the Cinnamon-throated Woodcreeper based on molecular characters.

Mangrove Rail (Rallus longirostris) photographed along the southern expressway in Florianópolis, Santa Catarina, while searching for crabs in an urban mangrove. In this volume, Vieira reports on an interesting case of increasing population sizes of this species associated with mangrove expansion on the Island of Santa Catarina. However, the author presents data supporting the classification of the Mangrove Rail as Vulnerable at a global level due to overall decline of the area covered by mangroves in South America.

Male Sincora Antwren (Formicivora grantsaui), a threatened new species described in 2007 and named after Rolf Grantsau, a pioneering ornithologist in Brazil whose obituary is published herein. This species belongs to the Thamnophilidae family, a group targeted by an extensive series of studies ranging from behavior to systematics carried out for over 40 years by Edwin O. Willis, whose obituary is also published in this volume. We dedicate the new Annotated Checklist of the Birds of Brazil published in this volume to Rolf Grantsau and Edwin O. Willis, therefore honoring their ornithological legacies. Photo: Ciro Albano.
