Reproduction of anthropomorphic test device (ATD) head impact test methods is a critical element needed to develop guidance and technologies that redu… In the present study, we investigated the effects of diurnal human disturbance associated with tourism on the reproductive performance of the European storm petrel Hydrobates pelagicus, a small seabird that nests in cavities and is strictly nocturnally-active at breeding colonies.

Breeding biology of the Critically Endangered Galapagos Petrel Pterodroma phaeopygia on San Cristóbal Island: conservation and management implications - Volume 20 Issue 3 - FRANCISCO CRUZ-DELGADO, JOSÉ A. GONZÁLEZ, DAVID A. WIEDENFELD Earlier studies demonstrated that Gould’s petrels could not only breed successfully in partially buried, plastic nest boxes, but breeding success in these artificial nests was greater than that in natural nests ( Priddel and Carlile, 1995 ).

A couple of species of rare seabirds, the white-faced storm petrel and the Gould’s petrel, were driven off the island. When communities of birds change this is usually the result of an ecological change. Population justification: Taylor (2000) estimated the global population as 200,000 to 300,000 breeding pairs, equivalent to 400,000-600,000 mature individuals or approximately 600,000-900,000 individuals. White-necked Petrel Pterodroma cervicalis 2009 IUCN Red List Category (as evaluated by BirdLife International - the official Red List Authority for birds for IUCN): Vulnerable Justification This species qualifies as Vulnerable because it has a very small range, on two or three very small islands, and it is therefore susceptible to stochastic events and human impacts. The Gould’s Petrel Pterodroma leucoptera leucoptera (Gould, 1844) (family Procellariidae) is an endemic Australian gadfly petrel, described by Marchant and Higgins (1990) as follows: “Forehead white but freckled with black, merging into sooty brown to sooty black crown and nape. However, humans impact their life history in many ways. Trend justification: The population is suspected to be in decline owing to predation by invasive species and unsustainable … Additionally, an experimental translocation, conducted in … This species resembles the …

Rather like the proverbial canary in the coalmine, they are readily affected by physical and chemical impacts on their ecosystems, whether these are caused by natural or man-made influences. The avifauna of the Cook Islands include a total of 50 species, of which six are endemic, one has been introduced by humans and three are rare or accidental. Gould's petrel populations were previously under threat from introduced species like rabbits and rats. Dark crown- and nape-feathers extend forward to join very dark, suborbital patch, making sides of face appear blackish, … Taxons concernés Les espèces des genres Macronectes Thalassoica Pagodroma Aphrodroma Pterodroma Bulweria et un Procellaria le Pétrel à lunettes, aussi appelé Puffin à lunettes modifier Le terme pétrel est un terme ambigu qui désigne en français plusieurs oiseaux de mer, de la famille des procellariidés. Tail length of Pycroft's petrel chicks also increased steadily until fledging although it was less closely correlated with chick age (r 2 = 0.86, P < 0.001) than wing length. HAVING cut across a sedate sea from Nelson Bay, the Imagine Cruises … Yet for the native wildlife on the island, the waves of human impact washing up on the beaches have also brought dislocation and decimation.
