Survival costs of chick rearing in black‐legged kittiwakes
1. We tested for costs of chick rearing in the black-legged kittiwake Rissa tridactyla (Linnaeus) by removing entire clutches from 149 of 405 randomly selected nests, in which one or both mates wasExpand

Why Climate Change Makes Riparian Restoration More Important than Ever: Recommendations for Practice and Research
Over the next century, climate change will dramatically alter natural resource management. Specifically, historical reference conditions may no longer serve as benchmarks for restoration, which mayExpand

Long-term direct and indirect effects of the 'Exxon Valdez' oil spill on pigeon guillemots in Prince William Sound, Alaska
We conducted a study to determine mechanisms constraining population recovery of pigeon guillemots Cepphus columba following the 1989 'Exxon Valdez' oil spill. We asked whether recovery was limitedExpand

Determinants of reproductive costs in the long-lived Black-legged Kittiwake: A multiyear experiment
We studied reproductive costs of Black-legged Kittiwakes (Rissa tridactyla) in Prince William Sound, Alaska (USA) by removing entire clutches from randomly selected nests over four successive years,Expand

Abundance Patterns of Landbirds in Restored and Remnant Riparian Forests on the Sacramento River, California, U.S.A.
Riparian vegetation along the Sacramento River— California’s largest river—has been almost entirely lost, and several wildlife species have been extirpated or have declined as a result. Large-scaleExpand

Comparison of Pigeon Guillemot, Cepphus columba, Blood Parameters from Oiled and Unoiled Areas of Al
In 1997, we compared the haematological and plasma biochemical profiles among populations of pigeon guillemots, Cepphus columba, in areas oiled and not oiled by the 1989 Exxon Valdez oil spill (EVOS)Expand

Energy costs of chick rearing in Black-legged Kittiwakes (Rissa tridactyla)
We studied energy expenditure in adult Black-legged Kittiwakes (Rissa tridoctyla) with doubly labeled water to measure energy costs of chick rearing. We removed eggs from randomly selected nests andExpand

Wildlife Response to Riparian Restoration on the Sacramento River
Studies that assess the success of riparian restoration projects seldom focus on wildlife. More generally, vegetation characteristics are studied, with the assumption that animal populations willExpand

Raising young reduces body condition and fat stores in black-legged kittiwakes
Abstract We conducted a manipulative experiment to investigate how raising chicks affects the body condition (body mass scaled by body size) and body composition (percent fat vs. lean mass) ofExpand
