Minisymposium: Seabird Movement Ecology

In the Honor of the PhD Thesis defense by Tom Evans (7 April 2017) we organize a minisymposium on Seabird Movement Ecology, covering widely the topics of Tom’s work. The Opponent Professor Stefan Garthe, Research and Technology Centre, University of Kiel is giving the initial lecture followed by talks covering the adaptations to flight, foraging strategies, marine area use and reproductive by different species of seabirds. Several of the talks cover the Seabird community in the Baltic Sea.
