Habitat, Population Dynamics, and Metal Levels in Colonial Waterbirds : A Food Chain Approach - image 1 of 1

About this item

Burger and Gochfeld report on nearly 40 years of research into the behavior, populations, and heavy metals in colonial birds nesting in Barnegat Bay, New Jersey, and the the nearby estuaries and bays in the northeastern US. The research team has changed over the decades, they say, and there are plenty of questions still unanswered to keep more generations busy. The topics include species, methods, and approaches; population tends of colonial waterbirds in Barnegat Bay; global warming, sea level rise, and suitable nesting and foraging habitat; heavy metals in fish, lower trophic levels; and passerine birds; and heavy metals, trophic levels, food chains, and future risks.
