Table 2 Correlations between environmental variables and minimum/maximum values of variables used in PCA/GLM analyses

From: Foraging behavior links climate variability and reproduction in North Pacific albatrosses

  1. Correlations were evaluated at an annual time scale over a 31-year period (November–February mean values, 1982–2012); mean SST was calculated in brooding habitat of Laysan and Black-footed albatrosses, respectively
