Seabirds at risk around offshore oil platforms in the north-west Atlantic.
Seabirds aggregate around oil drilling platforms and rigs in above average numbers due to night lighting, flaring, food and other visual cues. Bird mortality has been documented due to impact on theExpand

The evaluation strip: A new and robust method for plotting predicted responses from species distribution models
TLDR
We propose a new but simple method for visualizing modeled responses that can be implemented with any modeling method, and demonstrate its application using five common methods applied to the prediction of an Australian tree species. Expand

A global model of avian influenza prediction in wild birds: the importance of northern regions
Avian influenza virus (AIV) is enzootic to wild birds, which are its natural reservoir. The virus exhibits a large degree of genetic diversity and most of the isolated strains are of lowExpand
