Record #110944:

Population size and summer distribution of the common eider Somateria mollissima in Svalbard, 1981-1985 / Pål Prestrud, Fridtjof Mehlum.

Title: Population size and summer distribution of the common eider Somateria mollissima in Svalbard, 1981-1985 / Pål Prestrud, Fridtjof Mehlum.
Author(s): Prestrud, Pål.
Mehlum, Fridtjof.
Date: 1991.
In: Norsk Polarinstitutt. Skrifter. (1991.), Vol. 195 (1991)
Abstract: Most important breeding localities are mapped on basis of surveys made during summer seasons. Breeding populations along western and eastern coasts are estimated to be 12,000-17,000 and 1,500-3,500 pairs respectively. Most important moulting areas are found along western coasts of Spitsbergen. There have been no significant increases in breeding population since establishment of bird sanctuaries in 1973. Total late summer population is estimated to be 80,000-140,000 individuals. Population at turn of century was probably more, but not as much as ten times larger (as stated in earlier publications)
