A biological survey of Nunivak Island, June 1985

Metadata Updated: October 9, 2019

Results of a biological survey of Nunivak Island, June 5-30, 1985. 594 birds, comprising 25 species, were recorded on six bird transects. Waterfowl and shorebirds were predominant. Eight habitat types were identified: Dry Crowberry Tundra, Alpine Crowberry Tundra, Barren Boulder Fields, Dune Complexes, Tidal Pools/Backshores, Grass-Sedge Hummocks, Sedge Meadow Tundra, and Riparian Tundra. These habitats are all characterized by low growth form plants. However, the Riparian Tundra does contain 2m willows, the tallest trees on the island. Snap trapping yielded only one small mammal, a brown lemming, during 750 trap nights. Small mammal populations appear very low in 1985. Musk ox and 35-50 reindeer were observed, some animals daily.
