    About This Project

    There is enormous variation in reproductive success in seabirds: some pairs rear a chick successfully year after year, while most are perennial failures. Yet there is little information about why some individuals win and some lose, and the gap is especially big for Caribbean seabirds. We wonder if there are some features of the adults that determine reproductive success (bigger size, better parental care). As the most threatened group of birds, results will help to improve conservation efforts.
