Mapping wintering areas and metal concentrations of Arctic seabirds

Awarded: NOK 68,999

The main objective of my MSc thesis is to investigate whether migration strategies and wintering areas affect metal concentrations and compositions in Arctic seabirds, i.e. in common eiders, arctic skuas and long-tailed skuas. On the indivdual level, I wi ll also test whether migratory consistency is reflected in significant within-individual repeatability of metal concentrations.
