Data from: Foraging behaviour and habitat-use drives niche segregation in sibling seabird species

Ryan Reisinger, Tegan Carpenter-Kling, Maëlle Connan, Yves Cherel & Pierre Pistorius
To mediate competition, similar sympatric species are assumed to utilise different resources, or the same but geographically separated resources. The two giant petrels (Macronectes spp.) are intriguing in that they are morphologically similar seabirds with overlapping diets and distributions. To better understand the mechanisms allowing their co-existence, we investigated intra- and interspecific niche segregation at Marion Island (Southern Indian Ocean), one of the few localities where they breed in sympatry. We used GPS tracks from...
