ecreted from the preen gland (located at the base of the tail feathers), which birds use to waterproof feathers and ward off parasites. However, data validating preen oils usefulness had been available for only a single species of bird. In the new study, scientists report extending that knowledge to 13 species. This could dramatically increase the availability of seabird samples, the study states. The combination of this technology in ecological research with POP analysis of preen oil will increase our knowledge of the global distribution and transport of POPs, their ecological impact, and the ecology and behaviors of seabirds.
