Record #180396:

The diet of common eiders wintering in Nuuk, southwest Greenland / Flemming R. Merkel, Sarah E. Jamieson, Knud Falk, Anders Mosbech.

Title: The diet of common eiders wintering in Nuuk, southwest Greenland / Flemming R. Merkel, Sarah E. Jamieson, Knud Falk, Anders Mosbech.
Author(s): Merkel, Flemming R.
Jamieson, Sarah E.
Falk, Knud.
Mosbech, Anders.
Date: 2007.
In: Polar Biology. (2007.), Vol. 30(2) (2007)
Abstract: Reports identification of 39 species consumed by northern common eiders (Somateria mollissima borealis), using gullet samples collected over three winters (1999-2002) near Nuuk. In contrast to studies elsewhere, fresh mass of diet is dominated by soft-bottom species. Notes that diet diversity is higher in mid-winter than late winter and higher in coastal habitats than in fjords.
