Evolution of populations of coastal breeders in the Delta Area (Zeeland): Egg size

Availability: Restricted
The data are withheld from general circulation and disclosure but access may be obtained on a case-by-case basis through negotiation

In Zeeland (Delta area) a number of (breeding) biological parameters were determined from Tern and Common Tern. The dataset is the result of the determination of the biometrics of chicks from 25 to 50 marked nests Tern and Common Tern in a number of colonies in the Delta area (Zeeland). The size of the eggs of terns is determined using a caliper to 0.1 mm.
