Research output: Contribution to journal/Conference contribution in journal/Contribution to newspaperJournal articleResearchpeer-review

An estimated 50% decline in Taiga Bean Geese A. fabalis between the mid-1990s and 2015 contrasted increasing numbers of Tundra Bean Goose A. serrirostris wintering in Western Europe at the same time. Seber dead-recovery analysis of metal-ringed individuals used to investigate year- and age effects on survival estimates from historical ringing data of both taxa caught in The Netherlands 1964–1987 generated annual survival rates of 0.716 (0.013 SE) and 0.803 (0.007) for A. fabalis and 0.824 (0.006) and 0.831 (0.005) for A. serrirostris for first-winter and adults, respectively.
