Populations, feeding ecology and molt of Steller's Eiders

This study considers the temporal and spatial distribution of Steller's Eiders (Polysticta stelleri) during molt along the north side of the Alaska Peninsula from Port Heiden to Bechevin Bay. Subadult eiders molted primarily at Nelson Lagoon, adult males at Nelson Lagoon and Izembek Bay, and adult females primarily at Izembek Bay. Only a few...

An annotated bibliography of literature on Alaska water birds

The demand for information on birds in Alaska has surged within the past few years, primarily because of the need to adequately assess the impacts of a wide range of planned developments. The accompanying increase in studies of avian populations has resulted in a growing need for a comprehensive bibliography of Alaska ornithology. An initial...

K-Ar ages on intrusive and altered zones in the Chignik and Sutwik Island quadrangles: A section in The United States Geological Survey in Alaska: Accomplishments during 1979

Continued K-Ar dating of intrusive rocks and hydrothermal alteration zones in the Chignik and Sutwik Island quadrangles of the Alaska Peninsula, supplemental to that by Wilson, Detterman, and Silberman (1978) and Wilson (1978), has refined our knowledge of the ages of the igneous rocks and clarified relations between altered zones and igneous...

Strains of infectious hematopoietic necrosis (IHN) virus may be identified by structural protein differences

The development of an effective vaccine to infectious hematopoietic necrosis virus (IHNV) in fish requires a knowledge of the virus serotypes in nature. At least two serotypes were found among three IHNV strains (12). Attempts in our laboratory to extend this study with additional virus strains by classical immunological techniques were...

Observations of wing-feather molt and summer feeding ecology of Steller's Eiders at Nelson Lagoon, Alaska

The population size, moult chronology, food habits, and feeding behaviour of Steller's Eiders Polysticta stelleri were studied at Nelson Lagoon, Alaska from May to October 1977. Sub-adults were flightless from late July to late August and the adult males were flightless from late August to mid September. Adult females were rarely flightless at...

Plaquing procedure for infectious hematopoietic necrosis virus

A single overlay plaque assay was designed and evaluated for infectious hematopoietic necrosis virus. Epithelioma papillosum carpio cells were grown in normal atmosphere with tris(hydroxymethyl)aminomethane- or HEPES (N-2-hydroxyethylpiperazine-N'-2-ethanesulfonic acid)-buffered media. Plaques were larger and formed more quickly on 1- to 3-day-old...

Two Cenozoic igneous events on the Alaska Peninsula: A section in Geological Survey research 1980

Potassium-argon dating work and geologic mapping in the Chignik and Sutwik Island quadrangles (loc. 23) by F. H. Wilson, R. L. Detterman, J. E. Case, M. E. Yount, and others (Wilson and others, 1978; Detterman and others, 1979) have shown the existence of two major Cenozoic igneous episodes on the Alaska Peninsula. These events range in age from...
