Summary 1. The investigation covered whether sexual dimorphism could affect flight performance in a manner that is consistent with differences in at-sea distribution of male and female Wandering Albatrosses, Diomedea exulans Linnaeus. Adult morphology was also compared to near-fledged chicks to assess whether morphological differences are consistent with different at-sea distributions of adults and fledglings. 2. Body girth, mass, wing span and area were measured on 24 females (16 adults and 8… CONTINUE READING
