Title: Common Murre Population Monitoring

Project Year and Number: 2002: 02144

Other Fiscal Years and Numbers for this Project: 2001: 01144, 2000: 00144-A, 1999: 99144-A, 1998: 98144-A, 1997: 97144, 1996: 96144

Principal Investigator (PI): Dave Roseneau, US Fish & Wildlife Service

Assisting Personnel: Vernon Byrd

Research Location: Chiswell Islands

Restoration Category: Monitoring

Injured Resources Addressed: Common Murres

Abstract: FY 02 will provide closeout funds for this project, which censused the Chiswell Islands murre colonies during the FY 01 field season. The closeout work will consist of analyzing the data collected during FY 01 and comparing these results with previous postspill population counts, running a power analysis using these and other murre population count data (e.g., from the Barren Islands), and writing a final report discussing the recovery status of murres at this injured nesting location and in the spill area.
