Abstract

The synchronised breeding habit of many seabird species makes them particularly vulnerable to fires in the nesting area. Post-fire recolonisation and soil formation were studied on Albatross Island, and observations from island rookeries of shearwaters, fairy prions and fairy penguins in eastern Bass Strait and elsewhere were used with a view to understanding the long-term impact of fires on seabird colonies in Tasmania.
