Wind and weather effects on seabird foraging, movement and energetics
Organizers: Richard Phillips, Lesley H. Thorne, Thomas A. Clay
Editors: Thomas A. Clay, Richard Phillips, Lesley H. Thorne, Rory P. Wilson

This Theme Section presents current knowledge on how wind shapes the movement, energetics, foraging behaviour and life history of seabirds. Global wind and weather patterns are changing, affecting seabirds through direct impacts on flight and indirect effects across a range of spatiotemporal scales from individual wing beats to population processes. Advances in tagging technology have allowed animal location, environmental factors and physiological parameters to be measured simultaneously. Contributions to this Theme Section bring together recent developments in biologging, as well as atmospheric modelling and statistical and theoretical ecology to better understand the links between wind and seabird morphology, movement, energetics and life-history characteristics.
