Population dynamics, ecology and behaviour of black-browed albatrosses

The dataseries is a collection of data, such as count of breeding pairs, eggs and chicks and capture-mark-recapture of breeding or immature birds, which allow researchers to learn about black-browed albatross demography, ecology and behaviour (survival rates, breeding success, chick growth, recruitment, etc.). The study takes place at New Island, West Falklands. Field works occur during the austral summer season. Yearly reports on activities carried out in seasons 2014-15, 2015-16, 2016-17 are available on request.

Lineage The file contains identification (by reading the ring) of breeders per nest, count of eggs, identification of immatures, and count of chicks per nest and measurements of body mass. These data are used to determine the demographics of the population of albatrosses. Blood samples and feathers for stable isotope composition are also taken on field. These data with tracking data (GLS) enable the identification and modelling of the parameters that are driving population changes and relate those to environmental variables (i.e. climate and fisheries) and management practices (fisheries regulations).
