Life on the edge: The ivory gull – an endangered specialist in the sea-ice
Sea ice has decreased dramatically in recent decades. The ivory gull is one of very few ice-dependent seabird species, and it is thus threatened and red-listed in all countries where it breeds.
New method improves geolocator data processing
Data from all types of geolocators can be processed more easily and more accurately than previously.
Migration strategies in Common Eiders from Svalbard
Light-level geolocators were deployed on female Common Eiders to track their movements during the non-breeding season.
Diet of Northern Gannet chicks in North Norway
Diet data from several colonies in North Norway confirm the Gannet's opportunistic foraging behaviour with herring, mackerel, sandeel and saithe being the main prey brought to chicks. What can the diet tell us about the Gannet response to climate change?
