Seabird mortality on factory trawlers in the Falkland Islands and beyond
Seabird bycatch in the Brazilian pelagic longline fishery and a review of capture rates in the southwestern Atlantic Ocean
The southwestern Atlantic Ocean is an important foraging ground throughout the year for several albatross and petrel species. Longline fishing fleets in the region currently pose the main threat for…

Potential bycatch of seabirds and turtles in hook-and-line fisheries of the Itaipava Fleet, Brazil
Circle hook effectiveness for the mitigation of sea turtle bycatch and capture of target species in a Brazilian pelagic longline fishery
Overall, results support the effectiveness of using circle hooks for the conservation of loggerhead and leatherback sea turtles, with positive effects on capture of most target species of the south-western Atlantic longline fishery.

This review of breeding records of all potential breeding species recorded in Rio Grande do Sul serves as a benchmark for the adequate assessment of avian breeding records elsewhere and hopes to stimulate observers to rigorously document breeding events, especially for taxa for which basic information is lacking.
Long-term spatial and temporal patterns of sea turtle strandings in southern Brazil
It is suggested that time/area closures and/or reduction in gill net, pair trawl, and possibly double-rig trawl fishing effort in coastal waters of southern Brazil during austral spring and summer be considered for future fisheries management plans.
Diet of Neotropic cormorant (Phalacrocorax brasilianus) in an estuarine environment
Temporal variations in diet composition and fish size preyed by Neotropics cormorants, a widespread and generalist species, suggest shifts according to fluctuations in the abundance of prey.
Range expansion and hybridization in Round Island petrels (Pterodroma spp.): evidence from microsatellite genotypes
The results provide an insight into the processes of dispersal and the consequences of secondary contact in Procellariiformes and indicate that there may have been many generations of hybridization and back‐crossing between P. arminjoniana and P. neglecta on Round Island.
