Abstract. The goals of this Luquillo Experimental Forest: Research History and Opportunities are to synthesize the new research that has emerged from the LEF since the publication of Brown et al. () into a concise summary of key research findings and to highlight opportunities for future research that will contribute to a greater understanding of the structure and function of tropical.

Research highlights We review the avian studies from the The Luquillo Experimental Forest (LEF) in Puerto Rico. Basic ornithological research and its management implications in the LEF are reviewed.

Given predicted environmental changes we suggest potential studies for future research in the LEF. As with other experimental forests, the LEF provides an excellent site for long-term research. The Luquillo Experimental Forest (LEF), also previously known as the Caribbean National Forest and now the El Yunque National Forest, has a long and rich history of tropical research, which provides a wealth of research opportunities (Brown et al.,Harris et al., in press, Weaver, in press).
