Mangrove Rail (Rallus longirostris) photographed along the southern expressway in FlorianoĢpolis, 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.
