Atlas of important bird areas in the antartic
BirdLife International, the international Society for the Protection of Birds, has published an important new book. BirdLife makes catalogs of Important Bird Areas (IBAs) in all parts of the world, in order to provide policy makers with valuable standardized information. Following years of effort, a complete atlas of Antarctic IBA’s has been compiled, to which also IMARES has contributed. Background of IMARES contributions is mainly the research that we have done earlier on Ardery Island, studying the southern hemisphere fulmarine petrels (See photos).
