• Climate fluctuations and differential survival of bridled and non-bridled Common Guillemots Uria aalge 

      Reiertsen, Tone Kristin; Erikstad, Kjell E; Barrett, Robert T; Sandvik, Hanno; Yoccoz, Nigel (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2012)
      Climate fluctuations and its effects on ecological processes are evident in most areas worldwide but whether such climatic effects are induced phenotypic plasticity or whether animals adapt to the new environment through ...
    • Later at higher latitudes: large-scale variability in seabird breeding timing and synchronicity 

      Burr, Zofia M.; Varpe, Øystein; Anker-Nilssen, Tycho; Erikstad, Kjell E; Descamps, Sébastien; Barrett, Robert T; Bech, Claus; Christensen-Dalsgaard, Signe; Lorentsen, Svein-Håkon; Moe, Børge; Reiertsen, Tone Kristin; Strøm, Hallvard (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2016-05-28)
      In seasonal environments, organisms are expected to optimally schedule reproduction within an annual range of environmental conditions. Latitudinal gradients generate a range of seasonality to which we can expect adaptations ...
    • When things go wrong: intra-season dynamics of breeding failure in a seabird 

      Ponchon, Aurore; Grémillet, David J.H.; Christensen-Dalsgaard, Signe; Erikstad, Kjell E; Barrett, Robert T.; Reiertsen, Tone Kristin; McCoy, Karen D.; Tveraa, Torkild; Boulinier, Thierry (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2014)
      During breeding, long-lived species face important time and energy constraints that can lead to breeding failure when food becomes scarce. Despite the potential implications of intra-season dynamics in breeding failure for ...
