... its validity during diving, in diving endotherms. Here, we simultaneously deployed accelerometers and heart rate loggers in a wild population of European shags ( Phalacrocorax aristotelis ). Existing calibration relationships were then used to make behaviour-specific estimates of energy expenditure...

... flight should be higher in heavier birds. Based on this premise, we developed a new methodology using animal-borne accelerometers to estimate fine-scale temporal changes in body mass of a pursuit-diving, piscivorous seabird, the European shag, Phalacrocorax aristotelis . We hypothesized that variations...

... employ a behavioural strategy to reduce daily energy expenditure by minimizing the amount of time spent in water. However, European shags( Phalacrocorax aristotelis ) have been observed to spend up to 7 h day -1 diving in water of around 5-6°C. To gain a better understanding of the energetic requirements...

... these predictions we deployed miniature, dorsally attached data-loggers that recorded surge and heave accelerations at 64 Hz to obtain the first detailed measurements of a foot-propelled diving bird, the European shag Phalacrocorax aristotelis , in the wild. The results were used to investigate biomechanical...
