Research Project / Research Group Description

Seabirds are in rapid decline worldwide, but the relative importance of the multiple threats to their populations is not always clear, nor the birds’ response to current global changes. As top-predators their behavior, dynamics and life-history strategy reflect ocean state and condition and their decline is showing that the marine ecosystems is changing.

The research project aims to investigate the life-history strategy of seabirds under the current chemo-physical changes of the ocean. The project will take advantage of the long term monitoring databases collected by the team and the data collected by GPS and GLS devices to follow birds during their foraging movements and migratory routes. It will focus on two species of conservation interest, belonging to the order of Procellariformes, the European storm petrel Hydrobates pelagicus and the Scopoli’s shearwater Calonectris diomedea. Birds will be studied in the Balearic archipelago and Alicante region (Eastern Spain). The deployment of tracking devices will allow to investigate the individual and the species-specific movements in order to detect the important foraging and overwinter areas to help policy makers to reduce the threats to their populations.
