Selective harvest of sooty shearwater chicks : effects on population dynamics and sustainability
MetadataShow full item record
Selectivity of harvest influences harvest sustainability because individuals with different characteristics contribute differently to population growth. We investigate the effects of selection based on chick weight on a traditional harvest of the sooty shearwater Puffinus griseus by Rakiura Maori in New Zealand.
