Larus fuscus life-history interactions eco-toxicology GPS-tracking stable isotopes
I will determine to what extent life-history strategies related to resource acquisition and allocation interact through the annual cycle of Lesser black-backed gulls (Larus fuscus). I will therefore integrate individual-based eco-toxicological, biogeochemical, physiological and biometric markers that provide information on disparate life-history stages and combine these with detailed GPS-tracking/observations and controlled field experiments at the breeding site.
