Research output: Book/ReportReportProfessional


In the Summer of 2000 a combined Dutch-Russian expedition took place to the Willem Barentz field station at Medusa Bay near Dikson in north-western Taimyr. The expedition was organized by Alterra, the Working Group for International Waterbird and Wetland Research (WIWO) and the Dutch Agricultural Department of the Dutch Embassy in Moscow. As a background document containing all basic information collected during the 2000 season, the results obtained by the Alterra team and part of the results obtained by the WIWO team will be presented in this report. Its purpose is not to discuss data thoroughly but merely to summarize the research questions addressed and present the basic data. More elaborate analyses and discussion of the data will be made in theform of papers in international refereed journals, in combination with results from the 2001 season. Subjects of study generally concerned breeding biology of arctic breeding shorebirds and were all related to the timing of breeding.
