Abstract: Many demographic parameters are correlated to climatic variability. The causes are often poorly understood, partly because most studies centre on the population level. Interspecific comparative studies are needed to understand why species differ in their responses. I conducted phylogenetic-comparative analyses of seabirds in order to explain those differences.
