• A probabilistic algorithm to process geolocation data 

      Merkel, Benjamin; Phillips, Richard A.; Descamps, Sébastien; Yoccoz, Nigel Gilles; Moe, Børge; Strøm, Hallvard (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2016)
      Background: The use of light level loggers (geolocators) to understand movements and distributions in terrestrial and marine vertebrates, particularly during the non-breeding period, has increased dramatically in recent ...
    • Black-legged kittiwakes as messengers of Atlantification in the Arctic 

      Vihtakari, Mikko; Welcker, Jorg; Moe, Børge; Chastel, Olivier; Tartu, Sabrina; Hop, Haakon; Bech, Claus; Descamps, Sébastien; Gabrielsen, Geir W. (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2018)
      Climate warming is rapidly altering marine ecosystems towards a more temperate state on the European side of the Arctic. However, this “Atlantification” has rarely been confirmed, as long-term datasets on Arctic marine ...
    • Diverging phenological responses of Arctic seabirds to an earlier spring 

      Descamps, Sébastien; Ramírez, Francisco; Benjaminsen, Sigurd; Anker-Nilssen, Tycho; Barrett, Robert; Burr, Zofia; Christensen-Dalsgaard, Signe; Erikstad, Kjell-Einar; Irons, David B.; Lorentsen, Svein-Håkon; Mallory, Mark L.; Robertson, Gregory J.; Reiertsen, Tone Kristin; Strøm, Hallvard; Varpe, Øystein; Lavergne, Sébastien (Peer reviewed, 2019)
      The timing of annual events such as reproduction is a critical component of how free‐living organisms respond to ongoing climate change. This may be especially true in the Arctic, which is disproportionally impacted by ...
    • Global phenological insensitivity to shifting ocean temperatures among seabirds 

      Keogan, Katharine; Daunt, Francis; Wanless, Sarah; Phillips, Richard A.; Walling, Craig A.; Agnew, Philippa; Ainley, David G.; Anker-Nilssen, Tycho; Ballard, Grant; Barrett, Robert T; Barton, Kerry J.; Bech, Claus; Becker, Peter; Berglund, Per-Arvid; Bollache, Loïc; Bond, Alexander L.; Bouwhuis, Sandra; Bradley, Russell W.; Burr, Zofia; Camphuysen, Kees; Catry, Paulo; Chiaradia, Andre; Christensen-Dalsgaard, Signe; Cuthbert, Richard; Dehnhard, Nina; Descamps, Sébastien; Diamond, Tony; Divoky, George; Drummond, Hugh; Dugger, Katie M.; Dunn, Michael J.; Emmerson, Louise; Erikstad, Kjell Einar; Fort, Jérôme; Fraser, William; Genovart, Meritxell; Gilg, Olivier; González-Solís, Jacob; Granadeiro, José Pedro; Grémillet, David; Hansen, Jannik; Hanssen, Sveinn Are; Harris, Mike; Hedd, April; Hinke, Jefferson; Igual, José Manuel; Jahncke, Jaime; Jones, Ian; Kappes, Peter J.; Lang, Johannes; Langset, Magdalene; Lorentsen, Svein Håkon; Moe, Børge; Reiertsen, Tone (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2018)
      Reproductive timing in many taxa plays a key role in determining breeding productivity1, and is often sensitive to climatic conditions2. Current climate change may alter the timing of breeding at different rates across ...
    • Later at higher latitudes: large-scale variability in seabird breeding timing and synchronicity 

      Burr, Zofia M.; Varpe, Øystein; Anker-Nilssen, Tycho; Erikstad, Kjell E; Descamps, Sébastien; Barrett, Robert T; Bech, Claus; Christensen-Dalsgaard, Signe; Lorentsen, Svein-Håkon; Moe, Børge; Reiertsen, Tone Kristin; Strøm, Hallvard (Peer reviewed, 2016)
      In seasonal environments, organisms are expected to optimally schedule reproduction within an annual range of environmental conditions. Latitudinal gradients generate a range of seasonality to which we can expect adaptations ...
    • Multi-colony tracking reveals spatio-temporal variation in carry-over effects between breeding success and winter movements in a pelagic seabird 

      Bogdanova, Maria I.; Butler, Adam; Wanless, Sarah; Moe, Børge; Anker-Nilssen, Tycho; Frederiksen, Morten; Boulinier, Thierry; Chivers, Lorraine S.; Christensen-Dalsgaard, Signe; Descamps, Sébastien; Harris, Michael P.; Newell, Mark; Olsen, Bergur; Phillips, Richard A.; Shaw, Deryk; Steen, Harald; Strøm, Hallvard; Thórarinsson, Thorkell L; Daunt, Francis (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2017)
      Carry-over effects, whereby events in one season have consequences in subsequent seasons, have important demographic implications. Although most studies examine carry-over effects across 2 seasons in single populations, ...
    • Relationships between isotopic ratios, body condition and breeding success in a High Arctic seabird community 

      Hovinen, Johanna Emilia Heidi; Tarroux, Arnaud; Ramirez, Francisco; Forero, Manuela; Descamps, Sébastien (Peer reviewed, 2019)
      Predators such as seabirds are often used as bio-indicators of the marine environment. This is based on the assumption that changes in seabird populations are driven by changes in their prey. We tested this assumption in ...
    • Spring phenology shapes the spatial foraging behavior of Antarctic petrels 

      Fauchald, Per; Tarroux, Arnaud; Tveraa, Torkild; Cherel, Yves; Ropert-Coudert, Yan; Kato, Akiko; Love, Oliver P.; Varpe, Øystein; Descamps, Sébastien (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2017)
      In polar seas, the seasonal melting of ice triggers the development of an open-water ecosystem characterized by short-lived algal blooms, the grazing and development of zooplankton, and the influx of avian and mammalian ...
