SPECIES INFO

The Flores Green-pigeon (Treron floris) is a species of bird in the Columbidae family. It is endemic to Indonesia and occurs on the islands Lombok, Sumbawa, Flores, Besar, Solor, Lembata, Pantar and Alor.

Its natural habitats are subtropical or tropical dry forests, subtropical or tropical moist lowland forests, and dry savanna. It is threatened by habitat loss.

The Flores Green Pigeon feeds primarily on fruit and therefore a forest habitat is essential for its survival. Its relatively small population qualifies this species to be categorized as a "Vulnerable" one. While hunting poses somewhat of a threat towards the Flores Green Pigeon, its primary threat remains as the loss of habitat, even though it may seem to be relatively immune to the problem. This combined with the loss of vegetation due to burning throughout the dry season creates the main source of problem for the bird.
