This report, The Key Role of Specific Lands in the Panama Canal Area in Preserving the Value of Panama's Natural Heritage, provides results of a 14-15 March 1996 Partners In Flight International Working Group meeting held in Panama City, Panama. The meeting addressed the significance of the DoD lands in the Panama Canal area to neotropical migratory birds. The process of identification of habitats, and the evaluation and inventory of flora and fauna of DoD lands in the Panama Canal area began in 1992 by Asociaci�n Nacional para la Conservaci�n de la Naturaleza (ANCON) and The Nature Conservancy (TNC) as part of a project funded by the DoD Legacy Natural Resource Management Program. In 1994, the Smithsonian Tropical Research Institute, in conjunction with the Smithsonian Migratory Bird Center and Illinois Natural History Survey, initiated a long-term monitoring program for migratory and resident bird populations, also funded by the DoD Legacy Program. These Legacy projects have provided much of the information used to generate this report. Some of the most valuable land for neotropical migratory birds is found on U.S. Department of Defense land holdings in the Panama Canal Area.
