The Biodiversity of the Mediterranean Sea: Estimates, Patterns, and Threats
The Mediterranean Sea is a marine biodiversity hot spot. Here we combined an extensive literature analysis with expert opinions to update publicly available estimates of major taxa in this marineExpand

Ecological and evolutionary implications of food subsidies from humans.
Human activities are the main current driver of global change. From hunter-gatherers through to Neolithic societies-and particularly in contemporary industrialised countries-humans have (voluntarilyExpand

Testing the Goodness of Supplementary Feeding to Enhance Population Viability in an Endangered Vulture
Background Human-predator conflicts are directly or indirectly threatening many species with extinction. Thus, biologists are urged to find simple solutions to complex situations while avoidingExpand

Modelling demography and extinction risk in the endangered Balearic shearwater
Several demographic parameters of Balearic shearwater (Puffinus mauretanicus) were estimated and used to model extinction probabilities for the species, which is an endemic seabird confined to aExpand

Colony Size Selection Determines Adult Survival and Dispersal Preferences: Allee Effects in a Colonial Bird
Avian coloniality traditionally has been investigated by examining how breeding success varies with colony size, but other crucial fitness components rarely have been examined. This may lead to wrongExpand

Exploitation of trawler discards by breeding seabirds in the north-western Mediterranean: differences between the Ebro Delta and the Balearic Islands areas
Local trawler fisheries operate around the seabird colonies of the Ebro Delta and Majorca. The use made of the discards produced by thisfishery by scavenging breeding seabirds was examined from 1992Expand

Fishery Discards Impact on Seabird Movement Patterns at Regional Scales
Human fishing activities are negatively altering marine ecosystems in many ways [1, 2], but scavenging animals such as seabirds are taking advantage of such activities by exploiting fishery discardsExpand

Age and sexual differences in the exploitation of two anthropogenic food resources for an opportunistic seabird
The availability of food resources has been suggested as a major factor in the substantial increase in reproductive output, survival, recruitment and, ultimately, population growth rates in mostExpand

Recruitment and survival of immature seabirds in relation to oil spills and climate variability.
1. In long-lived animals with delayed maturity, the non-breeding component of the population may play an important role in buffering the effects of stochastic mortality. Populations of colonialExpand

Competition between the yellow-legged gull Larus cachinnans and Audouin's gull Larus audouinii associated with commercial fishing vessels: the influence of season and fishing fleet
Abstract. Competition between the yellow-legged gull Larus cachinnans and Audouin's gull Larus audouinii while foraging at commercial fishing vessels off the Ebro Delta (NW Mediterranean) wasExpand
