A range of parameters thought to contribute to intra-specific variation in mercury levels were investigated using the feathers and blood of adult great skuas Catharacta skua from 2 northeast Atlantic colonies as sampling units. Different feather types and blood were taken to represent intake over different temporal scales Mercury concentrations and stable isotope signatures of these tissues were determined. General linear models demonstrated that trophic status, as indicated by FI5N, had an… CONTINUE READING
