Climate affects seabird population dynamics both via reproduction and adult survival

  title={Climate affects seabird population dynamics both via reproduction and adult survival},
  author={Hanno Sandvik and Kjell Einar Erikstad and B. -S. S{\ae}ther},
Climate variability can affect population dynamics via adult survival or via offspring production and recruitment. The relative importance of both processes is still an unresolved matter, especially in long-lived species, where the time lags between the climate signal and the population response differ greatly depending on the process involved. We address the issue using 378 time series from 29 seabird species from 187 breeding colonies throughout the North Atlantic. The effect of climate on… CONTINUE READING
