Foraging ecology of fur seals at Iles Kerguelen
Entry ID: AADC-02128

Abstract: Public summary for project 2128:

The aim of this study is to relate the foraging behaviour of Antarctic fur seals breeding on the Kerguelen Plateau at Iles Kerguelen and Heard Island, to the distribution of prey species at sea. Specifically this project seeks to examine the relationship between predators and prey, and how their locations at sea vary according to the position of major productive ... View entire text
