Climatological Effects on the Breeding of Terns

Graham Quartly, Sebastien Jaquemet, Matthieu Le Corre, David Monticelli, Jaime Ramos
2008 IGARSS 2008 - 2008 IEEE International Geoscience and Remote Sensing Symposium  
In this note, we review two papers' findings on how the physical conditions ultimately impact upon the breeding of terns, a marinetop predator in the region.  ...  Rather than trace causal links through the food chain, we show empirical connections between avian breeding and the environmental conditions, all of which appear statistically significant.  ...  The sooty tern has the expected winter/spring breeding on Europa and Bird Island, but summer breeding on Juan de Nova, and non-seasonal on Lys.  ...

The central part of the channel appeared to be the best habitat for the four groups of species considered in this study (frigatebirds, brown terns, boobies and sub-surface predators).  ...  To test this hypothesis, we compared distribution patterns of marine predators in the Mozambique Channel based on a long-term dataset of both vessel-and aerial surveys, as well as tracking data of frigatebirds  ...  Acknowledgment The authors would like to thank observers of the different cruises, as well as Aure ´lien Prudor and He ´le `ne Mahe ´o for their work on Europa Island.  ...
