Alaska Science Center Data Sheets from Intracoelomic Transmitter Implant and Liver Biopsy Surgeries in Birds, 1993-2012
These are surgery data sheets filled out during operations on many bird species by the USGS Alaska Science Center, 1993-2012. The majority of surgeries were to implant intracoelomic tracking transmitters, but a subset were to collect liver biopsy samples. The data sheets provide information about individual surgeries, including: data about each bird, the timing of steps during each operation, administration of the anesthesia (Propofol or Isoflurane), and conditions during surgery. Data were collected from waterfowl, seabirds and shorebird species from regions across Alaska, as well as parts of Mexico, Canada, New Zealand, and The Netherlands.
The data are provided in PDF format of digitally scanned original field data. Because the data are in original form and were not digitized at the time of collection, not all data has undergone formal Quality Assurance/Quality Control (QA/QC). These are scanned originals and some text may be illegible. A comprehensive list of available data sheets is provided with this data release, 'intracoelomicTransmitters_eventIndex_mulcahy_1993-2012.csv'.
