SOTO-MORA, Yenny  y  URRUTIA, Jonathan. Assessment of the conservation status of four bird species of the Rhinocryptidae family in a protected forest area in Southern Chile. Acta Zool. Mex [online]. 2010, vol.26, n.2, pp. 401-414. ISSN 0065-1737.

In Chile, the richness of endemic birds has been threatened by destruction processes of their natural habitats. Due to this being evaluated the conservation status of four species belonging to the Rhinocryptidae. This family is characteristic of the temperate forests of South America, an it is in a protected forest area. The evaluation was made using the Method proposed by Reca et al. (1994), which use the SUMIN index consisting of 12 variables. The results indicate that Eugralla paradoxa (ochre-flanked tapaculo) presents Maximum Priority (PM) to be preserved, Scelorchilus rubecula (chucao tapaculo) deserves Special Attention (AE) of conservation, while Pteroptochos tarnii (black throated huet huet) and Scytalopus magellanicus (andean tapaculo) species would Not preserve Priority (NP). After this, it is necessary to implement a specific protective measurements for this family, given that its habitat shows signs of antropogenic processes, which may translate into a declining of their populations.
