During my investigations of the evolution of the woodhewers and ovenbirds I attempted to gather together data on the natural history of the groups and synthesize it into a meaningful form. In this summary I have stressed habitat, food, foraging behavior, and nidification. Although it should be realized that the present generic limits (Peters, 1951) are at best tentative, I thought it best to summarize the natural history according to the present classification. As most of the future changes in the classification of these groups will very likely involve lumping of genera, the information contained herein should remain separable to smaller groups.
