Winter Ecology of Stellers Eiders and Other Seaducks in western Alaska

US Geological Survey (USGS) - Declines in the breeding population of Steller's eiders (STEI) in Alaska have resulted in its listing of as threatened under the provisions of the Endangered Species Act. Exposure to petroleum-based hydrocarbons from boating or fishing activities and accidental oil spills is cause for concern at wintering areas of STEI in Alaska. Thus, the wintering activity and habitat selection of STEI may...

Population Status and Ecology of North Pacific Shorebirds

US Geological Survey (USGS) - Alaska is widely recognized as a global center for shorebirds. Ninety percent of the migratory species in the Western Hemisphere have breeding populations in Alaska. The North Pacific hosts one-third of the world's shorebird fauna. Coastal habitats are critical during some phase of their annual cycle, particularly during the nonbreeding period. Many coastal areas are being altered at an...

Pelagic Seabird Database for the North Pacific

US Geological Survey (USGS) - Much pelagic seabird data remains in individual datasets. While some investigators can analyze their own data sets for specific purposes, the bulk of pelagic seabird data are inaccessible to any one user group. We continue to combine all available data into a standardized database, and we are developing tools and products to map and interpret these data. This provides scientists, resource...

Using Genetic Markers to Determine Population Status and Management Strategies of Migratory Birds, Terrestrial and Marine Mammals, and Plants

US Geological Survey (USGS) - Identifying genetic markers for various species in order to develop conservation strategies. Alaska provides critical breeding, molting and wintering habitat for migratory and resident birds, hosts numerous resident and migratory or nomadic populations of terrestrial and marine mammals, and provides habitat for several resident amphibian species. Populations of nomadic and resident mammals,...

Habitat Dynamics: Using Satellite Remote-Sensing in Landscape-Scale Wildlife and Ecological Process Studies

US Geological Survey (USGS) - This project serves as a focal point of capability and expertise for integrating remote sensing, satellite telemetry and GIS. Working collaboratively with other principal investigators, this project applies satellite and software technologies to study spatial and temporal interactions between wildlife populations and their environment. There are three primary objectives: 1) develop optimal...

Population Ecology of Mergansers

US Geological Survey (USGS) - 1) Describe general population ecology, estimate levels of fidelity, and examine how these influence population dynamics and structure of common and red-breasted mergansers in Alaska; 2. Assess population genetic patterns among common and red-breasted mergansers in Alaska; and, 3. Assess phylogeography of all three merganser species across North America.

Epidemic of Beak Deformities (Avian Keratin Disorder) among Wild Bird Populations

US Geological Survey (USGS) - Documenting species affected by beak deformities, tracking the prevalence of beak deformities and their effect on survival and reproduction, and testing for various factors that could be contributing to beak deformities such as contaminants, disease, parasites and nutritional imbalances. Since January 1998, about 2000 birds of 30 different species have been reported in Alaska with grossly...
