Waterfowl Lead Exposure Data in Alaska and Russia, 1993-1999

Metadata Updated: December 11, 2017

This data set identifies lead levels found in blood of waterfowl sampled in Russia and Alaska during 1993-1999. This data set includes information on the species, individual identification numbers, age, sex, capture location (study area, latitude and longitude, or easting and northing), presence or absence of lead shot on x-rays, blood lead levels, weights, and measurements of individuals. Because the study took place over a number of years at the same study sites, many of the same birds (identified by band number) were sampled in multiple years.
