Karyotypes, new to cytology, are described for seven North American species of wrens (Troglodytidae): Campylorhynchus brunneicapillus (2n = 74), Salpinctes obsoletus (2N = 80), Catherpes mexicanus (2N = 80), Thryothorus ludovicianus (2n = 76), Thryomanes bewickii (2N = 76), Cistothorus platensis (2N = 76), and Cistothorus palustris (2N = 76).
Temperate grasslands are the most modified and threatened biome on the planet (International Union for Conservation of Nature 2014), and as a result, all species of the Cistothorus platensis complex have suffered massive declines since the arrival of Europeans to the New World.
