Migration and stopover in a small pelagic seabird, the Manx shearwater Puffinus puffinus: insights from machine learning

Abstract:

The migratory movement of seabirds (especially smaller species) remains poorly understood, despite their role as harvesters of marine ecosystems on a global scale and their potential as indicators of ocean health. Here we report a successful attempt, using miniature archival light loggers (geolocators), to elucidate the migratory behaviour of the Manx shearwater Puffinus puffinus, a small (400g) Northern Hemisphere breeding procellariform that undertakes a trans-equatorial, trans-Atl...
