I'm the director of the Fisheries Research Laboratory at NSU's Oceanographic Center. As we work on fisheries ecology projects, we frequently notice the lack of data on seabird ecology in the tropical western Atlantic. We are now working collaboratively with local rescue agencies to develop some preliminary trophic analyses of local seabird species using non-lethal stable isotope biogeochemistry techniques. We have also started examining the parasitology of the same coastal tropical seabird complex. Looking forward to October 2015!
