• A continent-wide search for Antarctic petrel breeding sites with satellite remote sensing 

      Schwaller, Matthew R.; Lynch, Heather J; Tarroux, Arnaud; Prehn, Brandon (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2018)
      The Antarctic petrel (Thalassoica antarctica) has been identified as a key species for monitoring the status and health of the Southern Ocean and Antarctic ecosystems. Breeding colonies of the Antarctic petrel are often ...
    • Antarctic petrels ‘on the ice rocks’: wintering strategy of an Antarctic seabird 

      Delord, Karine; Kato, A.; Tarroux, Arnaud; Orgeret, F.; Cotté, C.; Ropert-Coudert, Yan; Cherel, Y.; Descamps, Sebastien (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2020)
      There is a paucity of information on the foraging ecology, especially individual use of sea-ice features and icebergs, over the non-breeding season in many seabird species. Using geolocators and stable isotopes, we defined ...
    • 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 ...
    • Light-level geolocators reveal spatial variations in interactions between northern fulmars and fisheries 

      Dupuis, Benjamin; Amélineau, Françoise; Tarroux, Arnaud; Bjørnstad, Oskar; Bråthen, Vegard Sandøy; Danielsen, Jóhannis; Descamps, Sebastien; Fauchald, Per; Hallgrimsson, Gunnar Thor; Hansen, Erpur Snær; Helberg, Morten; Helgason, Halfdan Helgi; Jónsson, Jón Einar; Kolbeinsson, Yann; Lorentzen, Erlend; Thompson, Paul; Thórarinsson, Thorkell Lindberg; Strøm, Hallvard (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2021)
      Seabird−fishery interactions are a common phenomenon of conservation concern. Here, we highlight how light-level geolocators provide promising opportunities to study these interactions. By examining raw light data, it ...
    • 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 ...
    • Temporal variation in trophic relationships among three congeneric penguin species breeding in sympatry 

      Tarroux, Arnaud; Lydersen, Christian; Trathan, Philip N.; Kovacs, Kit M. (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2018)
      Penguins are a monophyletic group in which many species are found breeding sympatrically, raising questions regarding how these species coexist successfully. Here, the isotopic niche of three sympatric pygoscelid penguin ...
