EFFECTS OF SATELLITE TRANSMITTERS ON ALBATROSSES AND PETRELS
Abstract Effects of deployment of miniaturized transmitters and loggers have been well studied in penguins, but much less so in flying seabirds. We examined the effects of satellite tag (platformExpand

Seabird conservation status, threats and priority actions: a global assessment
Summary We review the conservation status of, and threats to, all 346 species of seabirds, based on BirdLife International’s data and assessments for the 2010 IUCN Red List. We show that overall,Expand

The influence of parental relatedness on reproductive success
The relationship between fitness and parental similarity has been dominated by studies of how inbreeding depression lowers fecundity in incestuous matings. A widespread implicit assumption is thatExpand

Accuracy of geolocation estimates for flying seabirds
Geolocation (Global Location Sensing or GLS logging) using archival light-recording tags offers considerable potential for tracking animal movements, yet few studies of flying seabirds have exploitedExpand

SUMMER DISTRIBUTION AND MIGRATION OF NONBREEDING ALBATROSSES: INDIVIDUAL CONSISTENCIES AND IMPLICATIONS FOR CONSERVATION
Many birds show a surprising degree of intraspecific variability in migratory tendency and choice of wintering site. In this study, we tracked the seasonal movements of 35 nonbreeding Black-browedExpand

Global relationships amongst black‐browed and grey‐headed albatrosses: analysis of population structure using mitochondrial DNA and microsatellites
The population structure of black‐browed (Thalassarche melanophris and T. impavida) and grey‐headed (T. chrysostoma) albatrosses was examined using both mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA) and microsatelliteExpand

Seasonal sexual segregation in two Thalassarche albatross species: competitive exclusion, reproductive role specialization or foraging niche divergence?
Sexual segregation by micro– or macrohabitat is common in birds, and usually attributed to size–mediated dominance and exclusion of females by larger males, trophic niche divergence or reproductiveExpand

Diet, provisioning and productivity responses of marine predators to differences in availability of Antarctic krill
Knowledge of relationships between prey availability and predator performance is the key to using predators as indicators of the state of marine systems and to assessing potential consequences ofExpand

Trans‐equatorial migration and mixing in the wintering areas of a pelagic seabird
Despite increasing interest in long-distance migration, the wintering areas, migration corridors, and population mix in winter quarters of most pelagic marine predators are unknown. Here, we presentExpand

Year-round distribution of white-chinned petrels from South Georgia: Relationships with oceanography and fisheries
The white-chinned petrel Procellaria aequinoctialis is a medium-sized procellariiform with a circumpolar subAntarctic breeding distribution. Feeding during both day and night, and often competingExpand
