THEME SECTION

Individual variability in seabird foraging and migration
Editors: J. González-Solís, R. A. Phillips, F. Daunt, S. Lewis, R. P. Wilson

This Theme Section showcases the latest research on individual variability in foraging and migration in seabirds. The studies thus contribute to our understanding of the causes and consequences of movement, dietary and habitat variability among individuals, using a range of methods for quantification and analysis. These studies provide fundamental insights into key factors such as individual specialisation, plasticity in response to environmental change and seasonal carry-over effects.
