Review of Seabird Demographic Rates and Density Dependence 2015

Abstract

This report presents individual species accounts for a selection of British seabirds, sea ducks, divers and grebes. Each account gathers the most up-to-date published estimates on the following demographic parameters: age-specific survival, age-specific productivity, age of recruitment, incidence of missed breeding, and natal and adult breeding dispersal. Particular attention has been given to regional variation in demographic rates, indicating the extent to which estimates may be applied to other less-well studied colonies. Where possible, the intrinsic and extrinsic factors that influence demographic rates are also detailed.
