GLS tag deployments on Snow petrels (Pagodroma nivea) in 2011 and 2012 from Bechervaise Island, Mawson Coast and Filla Island, Rauer GroupEntry ID: ASAC_2722_SP_GLS
Abstract: GPS tag deployments on Snow petrels (Pagodroma nivea) in 2011 from Bechervaise Island, Mawson Coast and Filla Island, Rauer Group, as part of AAS project 2722.
Identifying potential threats from a changing environment on snow petrel populations requires understanding key ecological processes and their driving factors. This project focuses on determining driving factors for the species' at-sea ... distribution and foraging habitat. The data will be linked to spatio-temporally coincident data of biological and physical characteristics of the ecosystem to develop explanatory models and, where possible, predictive models to explore the outcomes of plausible scenarios of future environmental change on snow petrel populations.
Tags were deployed on Snow Petrels in the Mawson and Davis areas for tracking purposes.
