Review of NZ gadfly petrel colonies published

Postby Colin Miskelly » Fri Jun 07, 2019 12:43 pm

Kia ora

The following link is to a review of New Zealand colonies of our 11 species of breeding gadfly petrels (genus Pterodroma), recently published in the Te Papa journal Tuhinga:

https://collections.tepapa.govt.nz/document/10687

This follows similar reviews of shearwater and prion breeding colonies published in 2013 & 2016

I hope it is of interest to some readers

Agreed, a very interesting read.

Highlights how little we know about some populations and some pterodromas fullstop!
