THE PELAGIC ECOLOGY OF MANX SHEARWATERS PUFFINUS PUFFINUSOFF THE SOUTHEASTERN UNITED STATES OF AMERICA

Manx Shearwater (Puffinus puffinus) Science Article 1

abstract

Knowledge of the biology of Manx Shearwaters Puffinus puffinus is largely based on dataobtained in and around breeding colonies. In this paper I provide information on various aspects of the marine ecology of this shearwater. The information presented here on age and sex ratios, masses, moult sequence and food habits is the first recorded away from the species’ breeding grounds.
