Through migration, foraging, and nesting, seabirds bring sky, island, and sea into relationship.

    Indeed, this is the first study to document contaminants in seabirds at the Laysan, Tern, and Palmyra colonies. Given the large seabird population in the central Pacific Ocean, knowledge of broad contaminant exposure is imperative for overall seabird population health.

While seabirds vary greatly in lifestyle, behaviour and physiology, they often exhibit striking convergent evolution, as the same environmental problems and feeding niches have resulted in similar adaptations. The first seabirds evolved in the Cretaceous period, and modern seabird families.

Sprinkled across the tropical Pacific, the innumerable islands of Oceania are home to some of the most unique bird communities on the planet, and they sustain species found nowhere else on earth. Many of the birds that live in this region are endangered, however; many more have become extinct as a result of human activity, in both recent and prehistoric times.

The eastern tropical Pacific supports on the order of 50 species of seabirds and 30 species of cetaceans as regular residents; these include four endemic species, the world's largest populations for several others, three endemic sub-species, and a multi-species community that.

Although the tuna, dolphins, and many of the seabirds are found throughout tropical oceans of the world, compared to the eastern tropical Pacific, the association is rare in the central and western Pacific (Miyazaki and Wada, ), the eastern tropical Atlantic (Levenez et al., ), and the western tropical Indian Ocean (Ballance and Pitman Cited by: When I was a kid, everyone thought that the Pacific Ocean islands had never had many bird species, and that those that had been lost died at the hands of European sailors and their cats, rats and goats.
