Title: Differentiation and Interchange of Harlequin Duck Populations Within the North Pacific

Project Year and Number: 1997: 97161

Other Fiscal Years and Numbers for this Project: 1998: 98161-CLO, 1996: 96161

Principal Investigator (PI): Buddy Goatcher, US Fish & Wildlife Service

Assisting Personnel: Dan Esler, Richard Lanctot, Barbara Pierson, Kim Scribner, Sandy Talbot, Denny Zwiefelhofer

Research Location: Alaska Peninsula, Prince William Sound, Kodiak Archipelago

Restoration Category: Monitoring

Injured Resources Addressed: Harlequin Ducks

Abstract: Restoration efforts for harlequin ducks require an assessment of spatial population structuring and movements among geographic regions to understand the extent of past and ongoing injury, to interpret measures of recovery, and to determine limitations to recovery and restoration strategies. This project will use genetic analyses and color-marking to determine the degree of spatial population structuring among harlequin ducks from broad geographic regions throughout their North Pacific molting and wintering ranges, including areas directly affected by the oil spill.
