Can anyone help with Southern Ocean Island sub-split species

Postby Doug » Wed Mar 31, 2010 8:15 am

HI all.

Maybe someone can help? (Dewi I know you have visited some parts of the region).

In the light of recent splits:
Yellow-nosed Albatross on Gough Island. Are they Atlantic or Indian?
Sooty Albatross on Inaccessible Island? Are they Light-mantled or Dark-Mantled?
Which Prion species are found on Gough Island? (Same question for Inaccessible Island)
Which Skua species are found on Gough Island?

Cheers,
Doug
