Bird Health and Toxicology, Oil Sands Region

Bird Health and Toxicology, Oil Sands Region Tree swallow (Tachycineta bicolor) nest boxes are installed in oil sands area and in reference locations to monitor contaminant levels and impacts on tree swallow nestlings. The exposure to tree swallow nestlings to air-borne oil sands-related contaminants such as polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) is assessed using passive air samplers. Measures of avian health are examined in relation to location of sampling and contaminants measured. 2022-05-20 Environment and Climate Change Canada bruce.pauli@canada.ca Nature and Environmentoil sands; monitoring; biodiversity; contaminants; swallowsNature and Biodiversity - ContaminantsObservation/MeasurementAssess Status of SpeciesProtect Species Well-BeingPrairie - Alberta (AB)Oil sandsGame (Wildlife) Bird Health and Toxicology Data (English)CSV http://donnees.ec.gc.ca/data/species/assess/bird-health-and-toxicology-oil-sands-region/?lang=en Bird Health and Toxicology Data (French)CSV http://donnees.ec.gc.ca/data/species/assess/bird-health-and-toxicology-oil-sands-region/?lang=fr Bird Health and ToxicologyESRI REST https://maps-cartes.ec.gc.ca/arcgis/rest/services/OSM/MapServer/6 Bird Health and ToxicologyESRI REST https://maps-cartes.ec.gc.ca/arcgis/rest/services/OSM/MapServer/28 Bird Health and ToxicologyWMS https://maps-cartes.ec.gc.ca/arcgis/services/OSM/MapServer/WMSServer?request=GetCapabilities&service=WMS&layers=39&legend_format=image/png&feature_info_type=text/html Bird Health and ToxicologyWMS https://maps-cartes.ec.gc.ca/arcgis/services/OSM/MapServer/WMSServer?request=GetCapabilities&service=WMS&layers=17&legend_format=image/png&feature_info_type=text/html
