is the mass of food in the stomach divided by the fresh mass of the predator (minus mass of the food) multiplied by 100 See Table for approximate sample sizes Verticle line projecting from x-axis separates flock-feeding species (left side) from solitary feeding species (right side) 30 FIGURE 16 Otolith condition (mean ± SE) in relation to hour-of-day among five groups of seabirds: (a), myctophids caught by storm-petrels, (b), myctophids caught by solitary procellariids, (c), myctophids caught by flocking procellariids, (d), exocoetid-hemiramphids caught by flock-feeders; and (e), diretmids, melamphaids, and bregmacerotids caught by all procellariiforms Otolith condition represents pristine otoliths of freshly caught fish and represents highly-eroded otoliths of well-digested fish Numbers adjacent to means are otolith sample sizes, where one otolith represents one individual fish (see Methods) For myctophids, diretmids, melamphaids, and bregmacerotids, the line of best fit (solid line) was extrapolated (dashed line) to the x-axis at otolith condition 1, and gives an estimate of the average hour when fish were caught by the seabirds 33 FIGURE 17 Number of intact prey

Percent composition of the seven most frequently consumed prey species within the diets of seabirds feeding in flocks over yellowfin (Thunnus albacares) (light bar, N = 11 flocks) and skipjack tuna (Euthynnus pelamis) (dark bar, N = flocks) For a given flock type, percentages are the number of prey of a given prey species divided by the total number of prey representing all seven prey species multiplied by 100 Number of prey for the seven prey species was 471 individuals from birds collected over yellowfin tuna, and 206 prey from birds collected over skipjack tuna 36 FIGURE 19 Proportion of prey mass obtained by each of three species groups when using four feeding strategies Feeding over predatory fish is denoted by predatory fish; NCI = non-cephalopod invertebrates 42 APPENDICES
