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.
Flexibility in the foraging behaviour of the kittiwake may buffer the effect of marine environmental changes.
Through its ability to adapt, the kittiwake may be robust to changes in the marine environment, but sufficient foraging grounds near the colonies are a necessity.
The little auk cannot escape the climate threat
If the temperature in the Arctic continues to rise, the little auk’s prey species will disappear and its existence will be threatened. This is despite the flexible foraging strategy of this little giant.
The northern gannet is becoming a polar species
Northward dispersion is associated with climate change.
