A simper analysis indicates that nocturnal foraging is more prevalent at night in Laysan albatross than it is in black-footed, while the opposite is true for diurnal foraging. Black arrows were calculated on behavior during the night and light grey arrows during the day. The percent contribution to dissimilarity between species is represented by the length of the arrows, and the direction of the arrow is towards the species in which behavior was greatest (measured by duration). Dashed lines at 10 % contribution represent a cutoff below which behavioral states were considered as less important variables driving the dissimilarity between species
