Evolution of populations of terns in the Delta Area (Zeeland): Biometry of chicks

Description
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). Bedoelde u: Het gewicht van kuikens van stenen in het Deltagebied wordt gemeten met een elektronische balans tot op 1 g nauwkeurig. The weight of tern chicks in the delta area is measured with an electronic balance to the nearest 1 mg.
