  • Although seabirds search large areas for food, their distributions often correlate with physical characteristics of the marine environment that can serve to aggregate prey. Kittlitz's murrelets Brachyramphus brevirostris are found almost exclusively in Alaskan waters, where they are closely associated with glacial fjords, suggesting that the distribution of this bird might be tightly linked to specific physical habitat characteristics of the fjords. We investigated relation- ships among… CONTINUE READING
