Abstract: This project was proposed to develop a means to monitor the productivity of marbled and Kittlitz's murrelets. The reproductive success of these two non-colonial seabirds cannot be monitored using standard techniques. To develop a productivity survey protocol, murrelets would be surveyed at sea to determine the timing and abundance of juveniles, the ratio of juveniles to adults and the coastal and marine features that best predict juvenile abundance. By monitoring murrelet productivity in relation to population trends, this index could eventually be used to determine what factors influence murrelet recovery.
