In this study we investigate the aggregative response of Common Murres (Uria aalge) and Thick-billed Murres (Uria lomvia) to capelin (Mallotus villosus), from a data set collected on a cruise in the Barents Sea during February and March 1993 (see Plate 1).
Observers on salmon boats in 1994 saw only one murrelet entangled but recorded 3,500 other birds snared, mostly common murres and rhinoceros auklets.

Only two studies have compared a ganzfeld condition with a nonASC control condition (Murre et al., 1988; Palmer et al., 1980) and, in both studies, scoring in the two conditions did not differ significantly from each other.
If [N.sub.W] is the effective population size of breeding groups (number of females, in which breeding groups at murre colonies are considered to be cliff ledges), [m.sub.W] is the migration rate among breeding groups within a subpopulation (proportion of females migrating), [N.sub.A] is the effective size of subpopulations, and [m.sub.A] is the migration rate among subpopulations, then [G.sub.W] = 1 / (2[N.sub.W][m.sub.W] + 1), and [G.sub.A] = 1 / (2[N.sub.A][m.sub.A] + 1) (adapted from Birky et al.
