Simulating retention of rare alleles in small populations to assess management options for species with different life histories.
Preserving allelic diversity is important because it provides the capacity for adaptation and thus enables long-term population viability. Allele retention is difficult to predict in animals withExpand

AlleleRetain: a program to assess management options for conserving allelic diversity in small, isolated populations
Preserving genetic health is an important aspect of species conservation. Allelic diversity is particularly important to conserve, as it provides capacity for adaptation and thus enables long‐termExpand

Evaluating gull diets: a comparison of conventional methods and stable isotope analysis
Samples such as regurgitated pellets and food remains have traditionally been used in studies of bird diets, but these can produce biased estimates depending on the digestibility of different foods.Expand

Migratory connectivity of Semipalmated Sandpipers and implications for conservation
ABSTRACT Semipalmated Sandpiper (Calidris pusilla) populations have undergone significant declines at core nonbreeding sites in northeastern South America. Breeding populations have also declined inExpand

Unexpected positive and negative effects of continuing inbreeding in one of the world's most inbred wild animals
Inbreeding depression, the reduced fitness of offspring of related individuals, is a central theme in evolutionary biology. Inbreeding effects are influenced by the genetic makeup of a population,Expand

Delayed egg‐laying and shortened incubation duration of Arctic‐breeding shorebirds coincide with climate cooling
Abstract Biological impacts of climate change are exemplified by shifts in phenology. As the timing of breeding advances, the within‐season relationships between timing of breeding and reproductiveExpand

Does Garbage in the Diet Improve Reproductive Output of Glaucous Gulls?
Abstract. Anthropogenic subsidies are used by a variety of predators in areas developed for human use or residence. If subsidies promote population growth, these predators can have a negative effectExpand

Reduction of Garbage in the Diet of Nonbreeding Glaucous Gulls Corresponding to a Change in Waste Management
Glaucous gulls ( Larus hyperboreus ) are major predators in the Arctic and may benefit from human development. We studied use of garbage by glaucous gulls in Barrow, Alaska, in 2007, when municipalExpand

Environmental and ecological conditions at Arctic breeding sites have limited effects on true survival rates of adult shorebirds
ABSTRACT Many Arctic shorebird populations are declining, and quantifying adult survival and the effects of anthropogenic factors is a crucial step toward a better understanding of populationExpand

Annual adult survival drives trends in Arctic-breeding shorebirds but knowledge gaps in other vital rates remain
ABSTRACT Conservation status and management priorities are often informed by population trends. Trend estimates can be derived from population surveys or models, but both methods are associated withExpand
