DOI on the Landscape--Pacific Nearshore Project--Coastal Ecosystem Responses to Influences from Land and Sea

US Geological Survey (USGS) - In 2009, three USGS Science Centers as well as the Minerals Management Service (MMS), National Park Service (NPS), U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (FWS), Exxon Valdez Oil Spill Trustee Council, (EVOS), the North Pacific Research Board (NPRB) and the Monterey Bay Aquarium collaborated to develop and implement a new study to evaluate north Pacific nearshore ecosystems.

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...

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

US Geological Survey (USGS) - Since January 1998, about 2000 birds of 30 different species have been reported in Alaska with grossly deformed beaks. Most sightings have been concentrated in south-central Alaska but recently a smaller cluster of observations has been reported from the Pacific Northwest (notably Puget Sound area). Outside of Alaska, we have received about 300 reports of individuals of over 80 species of wild...
