Northern Emerald-Toucanet typically forages on fruit and small vertebrates in humid forest, frequently moving together in small flocks. Precipitation is typically not limiting, but may be somewhat seasonal.

The mandible always is black, and the maxilla is mostly yellow, but the extent of the yellow varies across subspecies. Emerald toucanets are as quick to learn tricks as cockatoos. Ecosystem Impact disperses seeds Conservation Status Emerald Toucanets were not found in any of these endangered species databases. These subspecies can be divided into up to 4 groups which sometimes are recognized as separate species; see also Related Species.

Museum specimens institutions listed in Acknowledgments were visually examined and measurements of wing chord, tail, tarsometatarsus, bill, bill height, and bill width all three bill measures from anterior edge of nares were made to the nearest 0.

Emerald Toucanet (Aulacorhynchus prasinus) – BirdLife species factsheet

All four specimens show obvious intergradation between these two taxa, particularly in bill coloration see Fig. Archived from the original on However, the effects of geography upon the data are examined after the main questions posed are addressed. Javascript is disabled in your browser. For example, the distributions aulacorrhynchus A.

Emerald Toucanets, Aulacorhynchus prasinus are found abundantly in Central and South America, mostly along the eastern coast. From this dataset, therefore, we know that hybridization in toucanets can be visible and invisible, the latter probably after repeated backcrossings to one parent taxon.

Toucans, toucanets, and aracaris family: Aulacorhynchus prasinus, Aulacorhynchus prasinus [prasinus Group], Aulacorhynchus prasinus prasinus, Pteroglossus prasinus Lithuanian: The characteristics exhibiting significant differences between taxon pairs varied among pairs and, in most cases, between sexes Table 4.

While these data are important, using them to determine species limits is problematic. My conclusions, which I will detail below, are mostly congruent with theirs, but there are also key differences Table 1. Proposed races chiapensis SE Mexico and stenorhabdus W Guatemala, N El Salvador considered synonymous with virescensprobably exhibiting only clinal differences.


In the second edition of his monograph on the Ramphastidae, Gould recognized 10 species in the genus Aulacorhamphus now Aulacorhynchus by prioritybut several taxa remained undescribed at that time. They are fed for several weeks after leaving the nest. The major, color-based subspecific groups of A.


Significant univariate mensural differences were found among the six groups in both sexes Tables 3 and 4. My results show that a complex array of morphometric similarities and dissimilarities occur between the major subspecific groups of A. This is a clear mismatch aulacoehynchus morphology and genetics: In past work there has been too little discussion of the fact that different levels of differentiation occur among the subspecies of A.
