    Summary of seabird, marine turtle, and surface fauna data collected during a survey in the eastern tropical Pacific ocean, July 30 - December 9, U.S. . in , “Foraging Dynamics of Seabirds in the Eastern Tropical Pacific Ocean” (Studies in Avian Biology no. 35). Spear and Ainley, through meticulous recording of observations at sea and subsequent thorough data analysis, have provided an un-paralleled contribution to our understanding of these remarkable birds that will stand.

CrossrefCited by: Seabird distributions are determined by physical and biological factors operating at variable scales and levels of ecological organization. Accordingly, changes in the composition of the marine avifauna often correspond to large-scale (macro-mega) shifts in water mass properties. Yet, few studies have addressed biogeographical patterns across multiple current systems, spanning from highly Author: Juan Serratosa, K.

    The Pacific Seabird Group (PSG) was formed in due to the need for better communication among Pacific seabird re-searchers. PSG provides a forum for the research activities of its members, promotes the conservation of seabirds, and informs members and the public of issues relating to Pacific Ocean seabirds and their environment. Foraging piscivorous seabirds are known to be sensitive to both thermocline depth and sea-surface temperature change, but the potential influence of these phenomena on breeding dynamics is unknown. Using 18 years of data on three seabirds of the western tropical Pacific, we show that pelagic seabird .

For tropical seabirds, the single most important foraging strategy, believed to overcome poor prey predictability, is feeding in multi-species flocks in association with sub-surface predators.

Although the tuna, dolphins, and many of the seabirds are found throughout tropical oceans of the world, compared to the eastern tropical Pacific, the association is rare in the central and western Pacific (Miyazaki and Wada, ), the eastern tropical Atlantic (Levenez et al., ), and the western tropical Indian Ocean (Ballance and Pitman Cited by:   Spear LB, Ainley DG, Walker WA () Foraging dynamics of seabirds in the eastern tropical Pacific Ocean.
