AB Theme Section 5:

Working beneath the surface: interplay of biomechanics, physiology and behavioural ecology in diving seabirds

Editors: Rory P. Wilson, Yutaka Watanuki, Nobuyuki Miyazaki, Brent S. Stewart

AB Theme Section 5 is based on presentations from the latest conference of the Pacific Seabird Group, which was held in February 2009 in Hakodate, Japan. The conference included a symposium on the use of devices attached to birds, for the purpose of studying underwater foraging behavior. The contributions to AB Theme Section 5 focus on the energetics of diving and foraging, and on the methods for assessing the physiology of birds under water.
