Data from: Mind the wind: microclimate effects on incubation effort of an arctic seabird

Christoffer Høyvik Hilde, Christophe Pélabon, Loreleï Guéry, Geir Wing Gabrielsen & Sébastien Descamps
The energetic costs of reproduction in birds strongly depend on the climate experienced during incubation. Climate change and increasing frequency of extreme weather events may severely affect these costs, especially for species incubating in extreme environments. In this 3-year study, we used an experimental approach to investigate the effects of microclimate and nest shelter on the incubation effort of female common eiders (Somateria mollissima) in a wild Arctic population. We added artificial shelters to a...
