Changes in kittiwake diet indicate Atlantification of the Arctic
Higher abundance of sub-arctic and Atlantic species in kittiwakes’ diet supporting the hypothesis of “Atlantification” of the Arctic.
An open mini-seminar about the SEATRACK project
Where do Northeast Atlantic seabird populations overwinter? Save the date: 19.mars.
Unusual evolutionary development in Leach’s storm petrels
Separate breeding periods may have developed genetically different species over time. The phenomenon is called ‘allochrony’.
The European shag diet can predict recruitment levels of northeast Arctic saithe
The frequency of occurrence of 1-yr old saithe in shag diet gives the scientist an opportunity to predict future levels of recruitment of young saithe into the adult population.
