Seabird ecology research

Modern technology and modelling techniques allow ecologists to better understand the complex interactions between seabirds and the environment, including how they use habitats, their vulnerability to changes in the environment, and their status as indicators of ocean health. This is essential to inform best practices for conservation.

Development of analytical toolbox: comparison between predicted and ‘true’ behavioural states of two methods for inferring behaviour within seabird movement trajectories.
Virtual ecology and simulation model: an example of simulated individual animal movement on a virtual landscape.
