... in a colonial seabird, the king penguin ( Aptenodytes patagonicus ). We subjected 77 birds (44 males, 33 females) at various stages of incubation and chick-rearing to three experimental stressors (metal sound, distant approach and capture) known to vary both in their intensity and associated risk, and monitored...

... equivalent of M b loss is known. Interestingly, the composition of M b loss, and thus its energy equivalent, is constant in phase II fasting animals. This observation is consistent for seabirds ( Groscolas, 1988 ; Groscolas et al., 1991 ) and for animals with different body composition ( Cherel...

... 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...
