Heavy Rainfall, Sewer Overflows, and Salmonellosis in Black Skimmers (Rynchops niger)

Extreme weather events, particularly heavy rainfall, are occurring at greater frequency with climate change. Although adverse human health effects from heavy rainfall are often publicized, impacts to

Ultraviolet-assisted oiling assessment improves detection of oiled birds experiencing clinical signs of hemolytic anemia after exposure to the Deepwater Horizon oil spill

UV light evaluation can help identify oil exposure in many birds that would otherwise be identified visually as unexposed during oil spill events, and proves useful for enhancing detection of birds exposed to oil, but did not increase Detection of birds experiencing clinical signs of anemia compared to standard visual oiling assessment.

The regional, national, and international importance of Louisiana's coastal avifauna

ABSTRACT Coastal Louisiana—and its Mississippi River Delta, in particular—provides large and diverse habitats for many types of birds in North America and beyond. The Mississippi River and its dist...
