AIC model selection and multimodel inference in behavioral ecology: some background, observations, and comparisons
We briefly outline the information-theoretic (I-T) approaches to valid inference including a review of some simple methods for making formal inference from all the hypotheses in the model setExpand
Foraging destinations of three low‐latitude albatross (Phoebastria) species
Satellite telemetry was used to identify the foraging distributions of three congeneric species of albatrosses that nest in the tropics/subtropics. Breeding waved albatrosses Phoebastria irrorataExpand
Incidental and intentional catch threatens Galápagos waved albatross
As large, long-lived seabirds with delayed and slow reproduction, albatrosses have low intrinsic mortality rates and are especially vulnerable to extinction from extrinsic sources of mortality suchExpand
Waved albatrosses can navigate with strong magnets attached to their head
SUMMARY The foraging excursions of waved albatrosses Phoebastria irrorata during incubation are ideally suited for navigational studies because they navigate between their Galápagos breeding siteExpand
HEMATOLOGY, PLASMA CHEMISTRY, SEROLOGY, AND CHLAMYDOPHILA STATUS OF THE WAVED ALBATROSS (PHOEBASTRIA IRRORATA) ON THE GALAPAGOS ISLANDS
Abstract Venipuncture was performed on 50 adult, free-ranging waved albatrosses (Phoebastria irrorata) on Española, Galapagos Islands, Ecuador, to establish hematologic and plasma biochemistryExpand
No filters, no fridges: a method for preservation of water samples for eDNA analysis
BackgroundAdvancements in the detection of environmental DNA (eDNA) for detecting species of interest will likely allow for expanded use of these techniques in the field. One obstacle that continuesExpand
Detection and persistence of environmental DNA from an invasive, terrestrial mammal
Abstract Invasive Sus scrofa, a species commonly referred to as wild pig or feral swine, is a destructive invasive species with a rapidly expanding distribution across the United States. We usedExpand
Clearing muddied waters: Capture of environmental DNA from turbid waters
Understanding the differences in efficiencies of various methods to concentrate, extract, and amplify environmental DNA (eDNA) is vital for best performance of eDNA detection. Aquatic systems vary inExpand
The effects of habitat, climate, and Barred Owls on long-term demography of Northern Spotted Owls
ABSTRACT Estimates of species' vital rates and an understanding of the factors affecting those parameters over time and space can provide crucial information for management and conservation. We usedExpand
Limited dispersal by Nazca boobies Sula granti
We documented natal and breeding dispersal at several spatial scales by Galapagos Nazca boobies Sula granti, a wide-ranging pelagic seabird. We found exceptionally low degrees of both types ofExpand
