Predation risk and moonlight avoidance in nocturnal seabirds / François Mougeot, Vincent Bretagnolle.

Title: Predation risk and moonlight avoidance in nocturnal seabirds / François Mougeot, Vincent Bretagnolle.
Author(s): Mougeot, François.
Bretagnolle, Vincent.
Date: 2000.
In: Journal of Avian Biology. (2000.), Vol. 31(3) (2000)
Abstract: Examines predation by brown skuas on blue petrels and thin-billed prions at breeding grounds in sub-Antarctic Iles Kerguelen, and influence of moonlight on behaviour of both skuas and petrels. Discusses capture rates; vocal activities of skuas and petrels; patterns of petrel colony attendance; breeding status of petrels; influence of lunar phase; increase in predation risk with higher light levels, and for non-breeding birds; and behavioural strategies adopted by prey to minimise predation risk.
