This handbook is a compilation of methods for monitoring populations, breeding performance and other indicators on species breeding on Seychelles islands and has been modelled after the Seabird Monitoring Handbook for Britaiin and Ireland. Most of the methods recommended in this handbook have been field tested in 1999/2000 on Aldabra and Cousin Islands. The authors have also drawn on many years research and monitoring on other islands such as Aride and Cousine as well as reviewing methods used on Hawaii and Ascension islands. It is hoped that the handbook will provide researchers, government departments, managers, island owners with an interest in birds with accessible, simple and clearly defined sampling procedures.
