Migration makes breeding harder for seabirds

Migration makes breeding harder for seabirds

MPLS Research Zoology

An international collaboration has for the first time revealed the key drivers of seabird migration. The new study suggests that puffin colonies that travel great distances during the winter often find it more difficult to breed than others, and that escaping your habitat with far-flung migration therefore carries a cost.
