We used mark–resight data and amplified fragment length polymorphism (AFLP) markers to assess movements and gene flow between Central Pacific breeding colonies of the great frigatebird, Fregata minor. Of 715 adult frigatebirds marked on Tern Island and Johnston Atoll, 21.3% were resighted at other frigatebird colonies at least 582 km away. Mark–resight data indicated regular movement of males and females between Tern Island and Johnston Atoll (873 km apart), and less frequent movements to other… 
Postbreeding Movements of Frigatebirds Tracked with Satellite Telemetry
Abstract Using satellite telemetry, we studied the postbreeding movements of Great (Fregata minor) and Magnificent Frigatebirds (F. magnificens) at two breeding colonies in the Indian and Atlantic
Diversity of migration strategies among great frigatebirds populations
TLDR
It is suggested that population variability in migratory behavior may have arisen because of different environmental conditions at sea, and also depends on the availability of suitable roosting sites on oceanic islands.
Population Structure and Dispersal Patterns within and between Atlantic and Mediterranean Populations of a Large-Range Pelagic Seabird
TLDR
Spatial analysis of genetic variation indicates that distance is not the main factor in shaping genetic structure in this species, and suggests recent dispersal between basins, especially from the Atlantic to the Mediterranean.
Contemporary and historical separation of transequatorial migration between genetically distinct seabird populations.
TLDR
Evidence is provided that habitat specialization during the non-breeding season is associated with breeding asynchrony which, in conjunction with philopatry, restricts gene flow in Cook's petrel populations, which likely promotes evolutionary divergence between these two populations via local adaptation.
Philopatry, morphological divergence, and kin groups: structuring in thick‐billed murres Uria lomvia within a colony in Arctic Canada
TLDR
Natal philopatry may be an important factor driving the diversification of seabirds and kin groups in other colonies and species and may be more widespread than is currently acknowledged.
Widespread gene flow between oceans in a pelagic seabird species complex
TLDR
This study is the first of its kind to investigate gene flow between populations of closely related Procellariiform species on a global scale, demonstrating the need for consideration of widespread migration and hybridization in the conservation of threatened seabirds.
Philopatry drives genetic differentiation in an island archipelago: comparative population genetics of Galapagos Nazca boobies (Sula granti) and great frigatebirds (Fregata minor)
TLDR
It is shown that Galapagos Nazca booby (Sula granti) populations are substantially differentiated, even within the small geographic scale of this archipelago, while great frigatebird populations do not show any genetic structure.
Population genetic structure and long‐distance dispersal among seabird populations: Implications for colony persistence
TLDR
The findings highlight the importance of conserving multiple colonies at a number of different sites and suggest that management of this seabird may be best viewed at an oceanic scale, and provides an illustration of how long‐distance movement may ameliorate the potentially deleterious impacts of localized environmental change.
Population Genetic Structure of the Magnificent Frigatebird Fregata magnificens (Aves, Suliformes) Breeding Colonies in the Western Atlantic Ocean
TLDR
The results are in good agreement with an effect of marine winds in isolating the Brazilian meta-population and the Caribbean and Grand Connétable populations showed higher genetic diversity and effective population size compared to the Brazilian population.

Gene flow on the ice: genetic differentiation among Adélie penguin colonies around Antarctica
TLDR
Data from seven microsatellite DNA loci for 442 individuals from 13 locations around the Antarctic continent reveal a lack of genetic differentiation between Adélie penguin colonies around the Antarctica continent, despite substantial levels of genetic variation.
MECHANISMS OF POPULATION DIFFERENTIATION IN MARBLED MURRELETS: HISTORICAL VERSUS CONTEMPORARY PROCESSES
TLDR
Analysis of molecular variance, as well as estimates of gene flow derived using coalescent theory, indicate that population genetic structure is best explained by peripheral isolation of murrelets in the Aleutian Islands, rather than by selection associated with different nesting habitats.
POPULATION-GENETIC STRUCTURE OF A PHILOPATRIC, COLONIALLY NESTING SEABIRD, THE SHORT-TAILED SHEARWATER (PUFFINUS TENUIROSTRIS)
TLDR
Intracolony mt DNA diversities in three recently established colonies and in one colony that has experienced a recent bottleneck were comparable to mtDNA diversities within larger and older colonies, suggesting that, despite strict philopatry in those colonies, colony founding and recovery from population reduction occurs via immigration of a large number of individuals.
GEOGRAPHIC VARIATION IN MORPHOLOGY AND ALLOZYMES OF SOUTH AMERICAN IMPERIAL SHAGS
TLDR
Unlike the cases of other Fuego-Patagonian species studied, Pleistocene vicariance events appear to have had little influence on the evolutionary history of these populations.

ALTHOUGH the study of seabirds in their land-based breeding colonies has attracted much attention, an understanding of their ecology at sea, particularly their foraging range and the location of
Foraging destinations of three low‐latitude albatross (Phoebastria) species
TLDR
Foraging distributions of three congeneric species of albatrosses that nest in the tropics/subtropics were identified and analysis of movement patterns showed that the core feeding areas during long trips were located over the continental shelves of North and South America.
Foraging Strategy of Wandering Albatrosses Through The Breeding Season: A Study Using Satellite Telemetry
TLDR
It is shown that Wandering Albatrosses use two foraging strategies to cope with the constraints imposed by the different stages of the breeding cycle, the availability of prey, and the distribution of the prey.
Genetic diversity and population history of two related seabird species based on mitochondrial DNA control region sequences
TLDR
It is suggested that the reduced level of genetic diversity and differentiation in the common guillemot is caused by an inherent propensity for repeated population bottlenecks and concomitantly unstable population structure related to their specialized feeding ecology.

Seabirds may be able to increase their foraging efficiency by learning the whereabouts of predictable sources of prey and returning repeatedly to these locations. The occurrence of such foraging area
Ecologically determined natal philopatry within a colony of great cormorants.
TLDR
This study investigated whether the settling pattern of individuals breeding for the first time within a colony of great cormorants was determined by ecological or genetic factors, and the possible effects of age and gender.
