Climate fluctuations and differential survival of bridled and non-bridled Common Guillemots Uria aalge
(Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2012-06-22)
Climate fluctuations and its effects on ecological processes are evident in most areas worldwide but whether such climatic effects are induced phenotypic plasticity or whether animals adapt to the new environment through micro‐evolutionary processes is poorly known. In this study we have analyzed long‐term data (22 years) on the relationship between climatic fluctuations and the adult survival of ...
Global phenological insensitivity to shifting ocean temperatures among seabirds
(Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2018-04-02)
Reproductive timing in many taxa plays a key role in determining breeding productivity, and is often sensitive to climatic conditions. Current climate change may alter the timing of breeding at different rates across trophic levels, potentially resulting in temporal mismatch between the resource requirements of predators and their prey. This is of particular concern for higher-trophic-level organisms, ...
