Changing Arctic Ecosystems: Enhancing forecasts of walrus population response to a rapidly changing Arctic ecosystem (Modeling walrus population dynamics and bioenergetics)

US Geological Survey (USGS) - The Pacific walrus is a benthic feeding, ice-associated pinniped that ranges over the continental shelves of the Bering and Chukchi seas. The extent of summer sea ice in the Chukchi Sea has decreased drastically in recent years and this trend is projected to continue. Changes in the distribution of seasonal sea ice will likely affect walrus distribution and behavior and could affect the status...

Distribution, Abundance, and Habitat Use of North Pacific Right Whales (AK-07-x13)

US Bureau of Ocean Energy Management (BOEM) - The eastern population of the North Pacific right whale (Eubalaena japonica) is arguably the rarest stock of whales anywhere in the world. Right whales throughout the North Pacific were drastically reduced by commercial whaling beginning in 1835, and the remnant eastern population was almost wiped out by illegal Soviet catches in the 1960's. Today, the surviving population likely numbers...

US Bureau of Ocean Energy Management (BOEM) - The initial BOEM environmental impact analysis for the 5 Year Program, 2007-2012, identifies species of concern in the Chukchi Sea. Recommendations to BOEM (Section 7 Consultation, Beaufort Sale 186) included research on migratory species of concern. Thus, updated information on marine bird distribution, species composition, molting, staging and timing of use in the eastern Chukchi coastal...

Changing Arctic Ecosystems: A Bayesian Belief Network for Measuring and forecasting the response of wildlife populations to changes in ecosystem processes on the Arctic Coastal Plain

US Geological Survey (USGS) - Large climate changes have occurred in Alaska in recent decades. These climatic changes are already affecting terrestrial vegetation types and wetlands. These physical processes of ecological change directly affect attributes of habitats that are vital to Department of the Interior (DOI) trust species such as migratory birds and large terrestrial mammals. These herbivores may be affected by...

Changing Arctic Ecosystems: Enhancing forecasts of polar bear and walrus population response to a rapidly changing Arctic ecosystem (Modeling walrus-habitat associations and foraging energetics)

US Geological Survey (USGS) - The loss of sea ice during summer over the continental shelf of the Chukchi Sea in recent years has had visible effects on walrus distribution and behavior. The use of land haulouts by female and young walruses in the absence of offshore sea ice in recent years has resulted in direct calf mortality and almost certainly affects the availability of prey to walruses and, consequently, foraging...

Little Diomede Hunters and Elders Ecological Knowledge, Management Strategies, and Usage of Walruses (Odobenus rosmarus) in Bering Strait

North Pacific Research Board (NPRB) - Pacific walruses have been a crucial subsistence resource for communities in the Bering Strait region since approximately 2500BP. Communities on Saint Lawrence Island, King Island, as well as Big and Little Diomede islands developed complex walrus hunting techniques and usages. Current hunting practices are the realization of traditions with significant temporal depth. Consequently, these...
