organisms? Daniel Oro
biologyEnglish3 oct 20161048Compared to most wildlife groups, many species of albatrosses and shearwaters are relatively easy to capture at breeding colonies. This has allowed researchers to mark and recapture individuals over the years, even for several decades. This has resulted in an outstanding number of studies estimating a range of demographic parameters (including survival, recruitment and dispersal) and assessing ...

Seabird research for conservation: past successes, future prospects. John Croxall
biologyEnglish3 oct 2016892Originalment les accions de conservació són fetes per persones compromeses en una sola espècie/llocs, i la recerca vinculada van ser limitades. Recentment intervencions de conservació d'aus marines han estat a més gran escala (múltiples espècies i/o llocs), vinculades a la investigació aplicada dirigida (incloent la priorització d'anàlisi i desenvolupament de noves tècniques) i el ...

biologyEnglish3 oct 2016974Albatrosses and petrels are charismatic species of the open ocean, and their major lineages are characterized by diverse morphologies and ecologies. However, understanding their taxonomy and systematics has been challenging. Hypotheses have been obtained from examination of osteology, fine-scale morphological details, single gene sequences, and even the helical twists of their intestines. These ...

Life time foraging and link with fisheries in albatrosses. Henri Weimerskirch
Life time foraging and link with fisheries in albatrosses. Henri Weimerskirch
biologyEnglish3 oct 20161011In particular fisheries have known to have affected albatross populations by increasing mortality to unsustanaible rates. Here I review how albatrosses change their foraging behavior over their life time, and how it can have been affected by fisheries.6th International Albatross and Petrel Conference, 19-23th september 2016, at Historic Building of University of Barcelona.

In this presentation I bring together both experimental work and technology-enabled observation, conducted by a research group on shearwater life-history.6th International Albatross and Petrel Conference, 19-23th september ...

Ocean. Matthieu Le Corre
biologyEnglish3 oct 2016984Population models show that these threats may lead to population collapses if nothing is done and I will shortly review some important conservation programs that are conducted locally to reverse this trend. We did not find any evidence of incidental catches by longliners or by purse-seiners so far, which suggest that, contrary to numerous species of petrels and shearwaters around the world, our ...

In 1976 the islands were ransacked by Madeira fishermen. Alec Zino took a TV team to see the damage and the resulting film caused Lisbon to take action. Wardens have since been present on the islands.6th International Albatross and Petrel Conference, ...

biologyEnglish3 oct 2016878Infectious diseases are a relatively neglected but potentially important threat to poulations of albatrosses and petrels. This is notably so for species breeding in dense aggregations, which can be the subject of recurrent local epizooties, such as in the case of avian cholera in albatrosses of Amsterdam Island, in the Southern Indian Ocean. They have potentialliy interesting model systems to ...

Aquests senyals són àmpliament utilitzats pels invertebrats i els vertebrats, però els ocells poques vegades exhibeixen conductes olfactòries òbvies, i han estat poc investigades.
