Summary
Abstract: Seabird surveys in January - March 2006 of a poorly known area of the Southern Ocean adjacent to the East Antarctic coast identified six seabird communities, several of which were comparable to seabird communities identified both in adjacent sectors of the Antarctic, and elsewhere in the Southern Ocean. These results support previous proposals that the Southern Ocean seabird community is ... View entire text

Quality Observations of the numbers and behaviours of all seabirds present within a 300m forward quadrant of the ship were recorded continuously while the vessel was underway during daylight hours. Ship-followers were excluded from all analyses following BIOMASS Working Party on Bird Ecology (1982) as these individuals bias abundance estimates and reduce statistical correlations between seabirds and the physical environment. Ship-followers typically associate with the vessel for extended periods, either following the vessel at the stern or circling the vessel, or both. Data for prions (Pachyptila spp.) and dark shearwaters (Puffinus griseus and P. tenuirostris) have been pooled as with previous analyses, as these are difficult to separate at sea.
