Chick growth in albatrosses: curve fitting with a twist / N. Huin, P.A. Prince.

Title: Chick growth in albatrosses: curve fitting with a twist / N. Huin, P.A. Prince.
Author(s): Huin, N.
Prince, P. A.
Date: 2000.
In: Journal of Avian Biology. (2000.), Vol. 31(3) (2000)
Abstract: Presents new type of equation to describe growth patterns of procellariform seabirds and other species whose chicks characteristically lose mass towards end of rearing period. Coefficients used are growth rate; peak mass; age at which this is attained; loss rate; and index describing overall shape of curve. Illustrates with chick growth data collected over six year period at Bird Island, South Georgia, for black-browed and grey-headed albatrosses to demonstrate incorporation of mass recession into growth analysis and ease of inter-species comparisons.
