Abstract

The range and population size of the Long-billed Curlew (Numenius americanus ) have diminished drastically since the early 1900s; continued loss of breeding and wintering habitats has raised concern for the furture of this species (Allen 1980). The authors investigated organochlorine residues in eggs and tissues of curlews to determine how they were affecting this species.
