Whiskered auklets Aethia pygmaea, foxes, humans and how to right a wrong / Jeffrey C. Williams, G. Vernon Byrd, Nicolai B. Konyukhov.

Title: Whiskered auklets Aethia pygmaea, foxes, humans and how to right a wrong / Jeffrey C. Williams, G. Vernon Byrd, Nicolai B. Konyukhov.
Author(s): Williams, Jeffrey C.
Byrd, G. Vernon.
Konyukhov, Nicolai B.
Date: 2003.
In: Marine Ornithology. (2003.), Vol. 31(2) (2003)
Abstract: Examines history of introduction of Arctic fox (Alopex lagopus) to Aleutian Islands from mid-18th century onwards and effect on population of whiskered auklet (Aethia pygmaea). Also discusses programme of eradication of Arctic foxes from 1949 onwards and restoration of whiskered auklet population. Notes that whiskered auklets, almost uniquely among alcids, sleep on surface of boulders at nesting colonies, rendering them vulnerable to excessive predation.
