The present study aimed to analyze and discuss the results of the analysis of the landscape at different scales and levels of details of its structure interfere in predicting the presence and population size of a species and environmental quality of a unit of study. For this, executest were three main steps: 1) The choice of the species of study; 2) Review the unit of study with different models for the species of study; and 3) Propositions for the unit of study. The choice of the species of study was based on a questionnaire to various ornithologists, where we tried to select the most suitable species for the study. For the analyzes of the study unit was used , on the conception of Landscape Ecology , tools such as scanning a satellite image obtained by Google Earth ® and landscape analysis by MapInfow ® program. Propositions for the unit of study was based on analysis of the model considered more real and critical to the species of study aiming at establishing minimum viable conditions for the establishment and maintenance of the species studied. This specie of study was chosen Antilophia galeata, the unit of study is located in the municipality of São Carlos (SP), and the whole basin of Ribeirao das Araras. This study showed that one must have a very great care in analyzing the most appropriate model for a given species, because the way that the landscape can be analyzed can generate completely different results and sometimes lagged the actual situation, as evidenced by this paper.
