AbstractThe Madeira Laurel Pigeon (Columba trocaz) is mainly restricted to the laurel forest areas located in the northern slopes of this island. Since its discovery in 1420, much of this relict forest has been cleared for agricultura and timber use. Nowadays, the laurel forest with 15 000 ha (about 20% of the total 737 km2 of the islnad surface) is well protected by Nature Reserves. Although most of the pigeon population, estimated as 8,400 birds, is included within these areas, this species is threatened due to illegal hunting and poisoning.
