The article, The relationship between sea surface temperature and population change of Great Cormorants Phalacrocorax carbo breeding near Disko Bay, Greenland has been featured by the following news site: PlanetEarth online
Populations of Great Cormorants in Arctic waters have grown as sea ice has retreated and the sea surface has become warmer, scientists have found. A study of sea surface temperatures and cormorant populations over half a century showed that on average the birds' numbers increased in warmer winters and decreased in relatively colder years.
