Demographic Consequences of Poison-Related Mortality in a Threatened Bird of Prey

dx.plos.org/10.1371/journal.pone.0049187
Evidence for decline or threat of wild populations typically comes from multiple sources and methods that allow optimal integration of the available information, representing a major advance in planning management actions. We used integrated population modelling and perturbation analyses to assess the demographic consequences of the illegal use of poison for an insular population of Red Kites, Milvus milvus. We first pooled into a single statistical framework the annual census...

Comparing Multiple Criteria for Species Identification in Two Recently Diverged Seabirds

dx.plos.org/10.1371/journal.pone.0115650
Correct species identification is a crucial issue in systematics with key implications for prioritising conservation effort. However, it can be particularly challenging in recently diverged species due to their strong similarity and relatedness. In such cases, species identification requires multiple and integrative approaches. In this study we used multiple criteria, namely plumage colouration, biometric measurements, geometric morphometrics, stable isotopes analysis (SIA) and geneti...
