Breeding Distribution of seabirds in Patagonia Argentina coast (OBIS South America, ARGENTINA (AR-OBIS) SOUTHWEST ATLANTIC)
Entry ID: AROBIS.seabirds_1

Abstract: Updated distribution of sixteen species of seabirds along the Patagonian coast. Number of breeding pairs at colonies of penguins, cormorants, gulls and terns were evaluated by aerial, boat and ground surveys carried out between 1993-1995 during the implementation of the Patagonian Coastal Zone Management Plan (Fundaci?n Patagonia Natural and Wildlife conservation Society - GEF-UNDP). Census dates were timed to coincide with the late incubation period for each species. Additional information after 1998 was updated with published records.
