Sexual dichromatism in Mediterranean storm petrels Hydrobates pelagicus melitensis.

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

We propose the use of a non-invasive technique for sexing the Mediterranean subspecies of the European storm petrel Hydrobates pelagicus melitensis. We found that this subspecies shows sexual dimorphism in rump band width and wing length. Fast and cheap sex identification methods can improve conservation programs and population studies of this species.
