Assessing the development of shorebird eggs using the flotation method - species-specific and generalized regression models
Author(s): J.R. Liebezeit, P.A. Smith, R.B. Lanctot, H. Schekkerman, I. Tulp, S.J. Kendall, D.M. Tracy, R.J. Rodrigues, H. Meltofte, J.A. Robinson, C. Gratto-Trevor, B.J. McCaffery, J. Morse, S. W. Zack
Year: 2007
Description/Abstract: This publication documents a study that modeled the relationship between egg flotation and age of a developing embryo for 24 species of shorebirds. For 21 species, regression analyses was used to estimate hatching date by modeling egg angle and float height, measured as continuous variables, against embryo age.

New Conservation Priorities in a Changing Arctic Alaska
Author(s): S. Zack, J.R. Liebezeit
Year: 2010
Description/Abstract: Climate change is transforming Arctic Alaska and is impacting spectacular wildlife populations there. This region is renowned for its polar bear, muskox, vast herds of barren ground caribou, and the millions of migratory birds that come from around the globe to breed on the Arctic coastal plain. Projections for the near future indicate that the Arctic is changing dramaticallydue to the cascading effects from steadily increasing temperatures. What such profound changes mean for wildlife conservation is not clear.

Point Counts Underestimate the Importance of Arctic Foxes as Avian Nest Predators - Evidence from Remote Video Cameras in Arctic Alaskan Oil Fields
Author(s): J. R. Liebezeit, Steve Zack
Year: 2008
Description/Abstract: Video cameras and point count surveys were used to identify nest predators at active shorebird and passerine nests in the Prudhoe Bay region of Alaska. The surveys identified 16 potential nest predators, with glaucous gulls and parasitic jaegers making up more than 80% of the observations. However the video cameras showed arctic foxes as the predators in five of six predation events recorded with the cameras. These results indicate that estimated abundances of predators alone may not accurately reflect their true or proportional importance as nest predators.
