    Alexander L Bond
    Atlantic Cooperative Wildlife Ecology Research Network, Canada
    Environ Toxicol Chem 27:2375-7. 2008
    ..Using a randomization procedure, we found a large range of possible mercury concentrations if only one feather per individual had been sampled. Researchers should report within-individual variability in future studies...

    Mar Pollut Bull 60:1346-9. 2010
    ..Unlike other seabirds, the planktivorous auklets do not appear to offload plastic to their chicks, and we conclude that auklet chicks are probably at a low risk of contamination from plastic debris...
