Breeding Ecology of Shorebirds at Barrow
2012 will be the ninth year of a long-term study to determine factors limiting population size of shorebirds. The Barrow camp is one of 10 camps belonging to the Arctic Shorebird Demographics Network (ASDN) -- all focused on collecting data on shorebird demography and environmental variables. Other camps in Alaska include Nome, Cape Krusenstern (also run by USFWS), Ikpikpuk River, Colville River, and Canning River. Sites in Canada are located in the Mackenzie Delta, Bylot Island, East Bay, and Churchill.
