Effects of climate variation on the abundance and distribution of flamingos in the Galápagos Islands
El Niño Southern Oscillation events have been associated with large fluctuations in seabird and landbird populations of the Galápagos Islands. We reveal different effects of climatic variation on the abundance and distribution of a waterbird, as illustrated by the flamingos Phoenicopterus ruber living in saline coastal lagoons of the arid Galápagos environment. Using time series analyses [autoregressive integrated moving average (ARIMA)] to model the temporal variations in abundance,...Expand abstract
