Abstract:

The distribution of colonies of Larus cachinnans michohellis in the North Adriatic is related to the vegetation and the presence/absence of human interference. Strong increases in recent years are noted and an estimate for the Northern Adriatic population (40,000 - 50,000 pairs) is given.
