Title: Status of Black Oystercatchers in PWS

Project Year and Number: 1998: 98289-BAA

Other Fiscal Years and Numbers for this Project: 1999: 99289-BAA

Principal Investigator (PI): Stephen Murphy, ABR, Inc., Environmental Research and Services

Assisting Personnel: Todd Mabee

Research Location: Prince William Sound

Restoration Category: Research

Injured Resources Addressed: Black Oystercatchers

Abstract: Black oystercatchers currently are considered to be "injured with recovery unknown." Because most of the unresolved issues for this species pertain to impacts to the breeding population in Prince William Sound, this study is designed to assess aspects of the life history (e.g., phenology and productivity) of oystercatchers that potentially are spill-related for the same population of oystercatchers that was studied during 1989-1993. Year 1 will entail an examination of the life-history parameters that were identified by previous researchers as having been negatively impacted by the oil spill and an evaluation of whether these birds have recovered from the previously identified impacts. Data analyses will focus on comparisons of previously oiled sites with unoiled sites and among-year analyses.
