Item Identification

Title: Estimated seabird diversity
Short Name: Estimated seabird diversity
Status: Completed

Estimated seabird diversity from spatial statistical models developed by the NOAA Biogeography Branch. We operationally define seabirds as all avian species regularly sighted over marine waters. Given this definition, most species included in this chapter belong to the following taxonomic orders: Charadriiformes (gulls, terns, auks, phalaropes), Pelecaniformes (gannets, pelicans, and cormorants), and Procellariiformes (shearwaters, fulmars, petrels). Diversity is reported as the common Shannon Diversity Index (Krebs, 1989). | Description Source: NOAA
