Assessing the impact of climate variation on survival in vertebrate populations
TLDR
Analysis of long‐term monitoring data at the individual scale is often the only available approach to estimate reliably demographic parameters of vertebrate populations, and statistical procedures used in these analyses are reviewed. Expand
Emperor penguins and climate change
TLDR
The results indicate strong and contrasting effects of large-scale oceanographic processes and sea-ice extent on the demography of emperor penguins, and their potential high susceptibility to climate change. Expand
Trends in bird and seal populations as indicators of a system shift in the Southern Ocean
Although world oceans have been warming over the past 50 years, the impact on biotic components is poorly understood because of the difficulty of obtaining long-term datasets on marine organisms. TheExpand
Demographic models and IPCC climate projections predict the decline of an emperor penguin population
TLDR
It is shown that the increased frequency of warm events associated with projected decreases in SIE will reduce the population viability and the probability of quasi-extinction and emperor penguins will have to adapt, migrate or change the timing of their growth stages to avoid extinction. Expand
Antarctic birds breed later in response to climate change.
TLDR
A unique data set of dates of first arrival and laying of first eggs over a 55-year period for the entire community of Antarctic seabirds in East Antarctica shows a general unexpected tendency toward later arrival and lay, an inverse trend to those observed in the northern hemisphere. Expand
Phenological Changes in the Southern Hemisphere
TLDR
The largest meta-analysis to date of phenological drivers and trends among southern hemisphere species, assessing 1208 long-term datasets from 89 studies on 347 species shows an advance in the timing of spring events, although substantial differences were apparent among taxonomic groups and regions. Expand
SEX DIFFERENCES IN PARENTAL INVESTMENT AND CHICK GROWTH IN WANDERING ALBATROSSES: FITNESS CONSEQUENCES
TLDR
Investigation of fitness consequences of variation in parent provisioning behavior and chick growth in a sexually dimorphic seabird indicates that the optimal age-related investment by parents varies between males and females but also depends to a large degree on whether they are rearing a son or a daughter. Expand
LONG‐TERM CONTRASTED RESPONSES TO CLIMATE OF TWO ANTARCTIC SEABIRD SPECIES
TLDR
The population sizes of the two Antarctic seabirds could be negatively affected by reduced sea ice in the context of global warming because of different investment in breeding. Expand
Effects of climate variability on the temporal population dynamics of southern fulmars.
TLDR
The study indicates that the southern fulmar population dynamics may be very susceptible to environmental variability, and further long-lasting warm anomalies are likely to affect negatively their populations. Expand
Modelling population dynamics of seabirds: importance of the effects of climate fluctuations on breeding proportions
TLDR
The marked change in population dynamics may be explained in the light of a regime shift that probably occurred around the 1980s, and which affected the sea ice environment, the availability of prey, and thus the demographic parameters and population dynamics of southern fulmars. Expand
