      A global analysis recently showed that seabird breeding phenology (as the timing of egg-laying and hatching) does not, on average, respond to temperature changes or advance with time (Keogan et al. 2018 Nat. Clim. Change ...
    • Global phenological insensitivity to shifting ocean temperatures among seabirds

      Reproductive timing in many taxa plays a key role in determining breeding productivity1, and is often sensitive to climatic conditions2. Current climate change may alter the timing of breeding at different rates across ...
    • Moult location and diet of auks in the North Sea inferred from coupled light-based and isotope-based geolocation 

      Glew, Katie St. John; Wanless, Sarah; Harris, Michael P.; Daunt, Francis; Erikstad, Kjell E; Strøm, Hallvard; Trueman, Clive N. (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2018)
      Many pelagic seabirds moult their feathers while at sea, which is an energetically costly behaviour. Mortality rates during moult can be high, so spatial and trophic ecology during this critical period is important for ...
    • Strong migratory connectivity across meta-populations of sympatric North Atlantic seabirds 

      Merkel, Benjamin; Descamps, Sebastien; Yoccoz, Nigel; Grémillet, David; Fauchald, Per; Danielsen, Jóhannis; Daunt, Francis; Erikstad, Kjell E.; Ezhov, Aleksey V.; Harris, Mike P.; Gavrilo, Maria; Lorentsen, Svein-Håkon; Reiertsen, Tone Kristin; Systad, Geir Helge Rødli; Thórarinsson, Thorkell Lindberg; Wanless, Sarah; Strøm, Hallvard (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2021)
      Identifying drivers of population trends in migratory species is difficult, as they can face many stressors while moving through different areas and environments during the annual cycle. To understand the potential of ...
    • Sympatric Atlantic puffins and razorbills show contrasting responses to adverse marine conditions during winter foraging within the North Sea 

      St. John Glew, Katie; Wanless, Sarah; Harris, Michael P.; Daunt, Francis; Erikstad, Kjell E; Strøm, Hallvard; Speakman, John R.; Kürten, Benjamin; Trueman, Clive N. (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2019)
      Background: Natural environments are dynamic systems with conditions varying across years. Higher trophic level consumers may respond to changes in the distribution and quality of available prey by moving to locate new ...
    • Twilight foraging enables European shags to survive the winter across their latitudinal range 

      Moe, Børge; Daunt, Francis; Bråthen, Vegard Sandøy; Barrett, Robert; Ballesteros, Manuel; Bjørnstad, Oskar; Bogdanova, Maria I.; Dehnhard, Nina; Erikstad, Kjell E.; Follestad, Arne; Gíslason, Sindri; Hallgrimsson, Gunnar Thor; Lorentsen, Svein-Håkon; Newell, Mark; Petersen, Aevar; Phillips, Richard A.; Ragnarsdóttir, Sunna Björk; Reiertsen, Tone Kristin; Åström, Jens; Wanless, Sarah; Anker-Nilssen, Tycho (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2021)
      Species breeding at high latitudes face a significant challenge of surviving the winter. Such conditions are particularly severe for diurnal marine endotherms such as seabirds. A critical question is therefore what behavioural ...
