Projects

Climatic variability and harvest impacts on the demography of the short-tailed shearwater (Ardenna tenuirostris): A trans-hemisphere migrant (2015 - 2016)$12,200
Description
The aim of this project is to investigate the intrinsic relationship of short-tailed shearwaters (STSW) vital rates and their interaction with the environment, and to quantify how environmental variability affects, individual fitness, population growth rates and population viability of the Furneaux Island group populations. Using a 67-year mark-recapture time series integrated with tracking data collected through this study, information will be incorporated with demographic and environmental parameters to investigate the mechanisms underpinning the health of the population and the individual performance of the STSW. Additionally we will estimate vital rates (survival and fecundity) for the Fisher Island population and relate these vital rates to environmental covariates and harvest rates to create a robust population and harvest model for STSW.
