A review of estimates of daily energy expenditure and food intake in cormorants (Phalacrocorax spp.)

  title={A review of estimates of daily energy expenditure and food intake in cormorants (Phalacrocorax spp.)},
  author={Mark S. Ridgway},
Index words: Great Lakes Bioenergetics Energy expenditure Double-crested cormorant Daily energy expenditure (DEE) and daily food intake (DFI) are key parameters in estimating population level consumption by cormorants. A number of different methods are still employed in estimating these parameters along with different estimates for assimilation efficiency (if used) and prey energy density. The pellet/fish size reconstruction and percent adult body weight methods underestimate DFI for a number… CONTINUE READING
