Lower foraging efficiency in immatures drives spatial segregation with breeding adults in a long-lived pelagic seabird

Abstract:

Competition and, ultimately, adaptive specialization are the major ecological forces behind spatial segregation in foraging distributions, and are commonly driven by size-related differences in competitiveness between individuals of different sex, age or social status. However, such segregation can also be observed in long-lived monomorphic species, often between immature and breeding individuals. In many of these species, individuals often forage in patchy an...
