      While chachalacas and guans tend to regenerate tropical forests through seed dispersal, curassows appear to be primarily seed predators, helping to keep plant population density in check (e.g. Caziani and Protomastro , Érard et al. , Érard and Théry , Théry et al. ), although curassows may disperse some hard seeds (e.g. Curassows are the largest members of the Cracidae, a New World family of gallinaceous birds including additionally the guans and chachalacas. Most literature recognizes four curassow genera - Nothocrax, Mitu, Pauxi, and Crax - with varying numbers of species and subspecies (e.g. Peters ; Hellmayr and Conover ; Blake ).

    The Cracidae (curassows, guans, and chachalacas) include some of the most spectacular and endangered Neotropical bird species. They lack a comprehensive phylogenetic hypothesis, hence their geographic origin and the history of their diversification remain unclear. Curassows, guans, and chachalacas — together known as cracids — are an ancient family whose closest relatives may be the megapodes of Australasia. The oldest fossil cracid is from 50 million years ago in what is now Wyoming (del Hoyo ).
