Special international research is conducted here on ecology and biology of waterfowl (Steganopodes, Ciconiiformes), as well as on herring gull (Larus argentatus) and thin-billed curlew (Numenius tenuirostris).
Scientists from the Max Planck Institute for Ornithology have studied the migratory behaviour of thin-billed prions and discovered that the animals spend their moulting season in two areas that are at a considerable distance from each other.
According to the researchers, 90 percent of the thin-billed prions visit the Antarctic waters.
A team of researchers working with Petra Quillfeldt from the Max Planck Institute for Ornithology in Radolfzell managed to overcome these difficulties, however, and succeeded in decoding information about the migratory behaviour of thin-billed prions.
"The results show that not only the entire species but also individual thin-billed prions are extremely flexible in their behaviour.
