ABSTRACT Gulls are monomorphic in plumage characteristics but show a sexual size dimorphism where males are larger than females. In this study, we use discriminant function analyses (DFA) and generalised linear modelling (GLM) to provide sexing criteria based on morphometrics for adult and fledgling Lesser Black-backed Gulls Larus fuscus in Iceland. Males were significantly larger than females in all variables measured and this was the case for both age classes. For DFA the best sexing model… Expand
