Amazona martinicana

The Amazona martinicana is classified as Extinct (EX), there is no reasonable doubt that the last individual has died.

Summary Amazona martinicana was described from Martinique (to France) by Labat in 1742, and by Buffon in 1779, and named by Clark based on these descriptions1. Labat wrote that "the parrot is too common a bird for me to stop to give a description of it"1, and so the species must have declined very rapidly to extinction in the latter half of the 18th century. Ecology: Nothing is known but it is likely to have been a forest species. More

The Martinique Amazon, Amazona martinicana, was a species of parrot in the Psittacidae family. It was endemic to Martinique. It became extinct due to habitat loss as Martinique was cleared for agriculture. It has not been recorded since 1722. A similar, also extinct parrot inhabited the island of Guadeloupe and may have been the same species. References - 1. ^ a b c Ellis, Richard (2004). More
