Population and status of Emperor Geese along the north side of the Alaska Peninsula

We gathered information on the timing of spring and autumn migration of Emperor Geese Anser canagicus from Nelson Lagoon, the age ratios of geese during autumn migration, and the numbers of geese in estuaries along the north side of the Alaska Peninsula and Bristol Bay during spring and autumn migration. Birds staged in most of the lagoons and...

Tertiary volcanic and hypabyssal rocks in the Ugashik quadrangle: A section in Geological Survey research 1981

Potassium-argon dating of volcanic and hypabyssal rocks from the Ugashik quadrangle by F. H. Wilson and Nora Shew indicates that these rocks fall into the same two age groupings as those of the Chignik and Sutwik Island quadrangles to the south. Rocks of late Eocene to earliest Miocene and latest Miocene to Holocene age are found in both areas....

Shorebirds of the eastern Bering Sea

Largely on the basis of work conducted in western Alaska since 1975, we present an overview of the shorebird resources of the region and discuss their relationship to the littoral and supralittoral habitats of the area. Thirty species of shorebirds occur regularly and comprise an important component of the eastern Bering Sea ecosystem. For a third...

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...
