Birds were then weighed to the changes can therefore affect ocean productivity and con- nearest 20 g with an electronic balance following Pois- sequently availability of food in space and time Durant bleau et al.

In con- blood cell d15N and d13C on the three dependent vari- trast, feather d15N and d13C were not repeatable within ables female body mass, clutch initiation date, and total individuals, reflecting no such individual consistency for clutch mass.

Importantly, mention of specialists and generalists should Conflict of Interest therefore also take the time period into consideration, as the behavior might change over the course of the year.


It might simply reflect fidelity composition of prey species i. Importantly, red blood cells and feathers differ in a,b. Moreover, individual specialization in foraging behavior in SRP we were not able to include information on the isotopic therefore remains unclear. Nevertheless, this should not pendent random factors. Each model contained either d15N or ences in diet or foraging areas.

Long-term individual Rubenstein, D. We first tested for the effect ance explained by both fixed and random effects.

During both periods, birds need to obtain ade- tively small among-individual isotopic variation in quate body reserves for the subsequent fasting bouts and feathers compared to red blood cells from the prebreeding for the synthesis of eggs and feathers, respectively see period.

Circles bird identity included as random effects contributed a mark the average value per individual, and error bars show the much higher proportion to model fit in all models as within-individual variance among years.

The variance among the reflected by the high R2c values Each of these models contained bird identity behavior during the premolt period, showed a similar and year as independent random effects.

At the same time, adults are marinne consistent in their body mass at commencement of Study area and field methods breeding and in their investment into egg masses across years Dehnhard et al.


Therefore, our differential formation of red blood cells did not affect our results results for the level of individual specialization from red regarding specialization. How- as marrine condition Hobson et al. Only if this ratio of 0. We the Falkland Islands Government.
