• 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 ...
    • Foraging tactics in dynamic sea-ice habitats affect individual state in a long-ranging seabird 

      Tarroux, Arnaud; Cherel, Yves; Fauchald, Per; Kato, Akiko; Love, Oliver P.; Ropert-Coudert, Yan; Spreen, Gunnar; Varpe, Øystein; Weimerskirch, Henri; Yoccoz, Nigel; Zahn, Sandrine; Descamps, Sebastien (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2020)
      1. Individual heterogeneity in diet and foraging behaviour is common in wild animal populations, and can be a strong determinant of how populations respond to environmental changes. Within populations, variation in ...

    • 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 ...
    • 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 ...
    • Variation and correlation in the timing of breeding of North Atlantic seabirds across multiple scales 

      Keogan, Katharine; Daunt, Francis; Wanless, Sarah; Phillips, Richard A.; Alvarez, David; Anker-Nilssen, Tycho; Barrett, Robert; Bech, Claus; Becker, Peter H.; Berglund, Per-Arvid; Bouwhuis, Sandra; Burr, Zofia M.; Chastel, Olivier; Christensen-Dalsgaard, S*; Christensen-Dalsgaard, Signe; Descamps, Sebastien; Diamond, Tony; Elliott, Kyle; Erikstad, Kjell E.; Harris, Mike; Hentati-Sundberg, Jonas; Heubeck, Martin; Kress, Stephen W.; Langset, Magdalene; Lorentsen, Svein-Håkon; Major, Heather L.; Mallory, Mark; Mellor, Mick; Miles, Will T.S.; Moe, Børge; Mostello, Carolyn; Newell, Mark; Nisbet, Ian; Reiertsen, Tone Kristin; Rock, Jennifer; Shannon, Paula; Varpe, Øystein; Lewis, Sue; Phillimore, Albert B. (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2022)
      1. Timing of breeding, an important driver of fitness in many populations, is widely studied in the context of global change, yet despite considerable efforts to identify environmental drivers of seabird nesting phenology, ...
