Change in abundance of Pacific brant wintering in Alaska: evidence of a climate warming effect? / David H. Ward, and 6 others.

Title: Change in abundance of Pacific brant wintering in Alaska: evidence of a climate warming effect? / David H. Ward, and 6 others.
Author(s): Ward, David H.
Date: 2009.
In: Arctic. (2009.), Vol. 62(3) (2009)
Abstract: Assesses winter abundance and distribution of Pacific brant (Branta bernicla nigricans) in Alaska to evaluate whether climate warming may be contributing to positive trends in most northern of wintering populations. Mean surface air temperatures during winter at end of Alaska Peninsula increased about 1°C between 1963-2004, resulting in 23% reduction in freezing degree days and 34% decline in number of days when ice cover prevents birds from accessing food resources. Trends in wintering population fluctuated with states of Pacific Decadal Oscillation, increasing during positive (warm) phases and decreasing during negative (cold) phases, and this correlation provides support for hypothesis that population growth is linked to climate warming.
