About this book

This group of small islands and rocks, which lies twenty miles off San Francisco, is home to a large and remarkably diverse assemblage of seabirds. Hundreds of thousands of birds from eleven species use these busy rocks throughout the year. Based on a fifteen year study, this book illustrates how closely the birds breeding ecology is linked to fluctuations in the marine environment, and especially availability of food resources.
