Deployment of tracking devices has revolutionised our understanding of seabird movements and behaviour in recent decades. The talk will describe insights into the key drivers of intra- and inter-specific variation in habitat use provided by the diverse range of devices used in recent decades, including GPS , immersion, accelerometer, time-depth and radar-detecting tags. Seabirds are more threatened than any other group of birds, and for many species, particularly albatrosses and petrels, the main problem is incidental mortality (bycatch) in longline or trawl fisheries. The talk will therefore also illustrate how tracking data can be used to better determine when and where particular species, sexes, age classes or individuals are at greatest risk.
