Winter extratropical cyclones cause reduced eider survival
An increase in extreme weather events is probably bad news for common eiders.
Arctic seabirds respond differently to an earlier spring
Some arctic seabirds start their breeding season earlier now than they did 35 years ago.
Nesting European shags profit from readily accessible shoals of saithe.
Strong relations between breeding success, foraging behaviour and choice of prey among European shags.
Tourism and traffic near the breeding sites reduce seabird breeding success
According to a study from Hornøya, the effect varies among species.
