Seabird Tissue Archival and Monitoring Project (STAMP) - a long-term, collaborative, Alaska-wide effort by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife ServiceÕs Alaska Maritime National Wildlife Refuge (USFWS/AMNWR), the U.S. Geological Survey's Biological Resources Division (USGS/BRD), the Bureau of Indian Affairs Alaska Region Subsistence Branch, and the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) to monitor long-term trends in environmental contaminants using seabird eggs. Contaminant analyses have included polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs), organochlorine pesticides (including DDT, hexachlorobenzene [HCB], hexachlorocyclohexanes [HCH] and chlordanes), mercury, methylmercury and organotins. Current species include common murres (Uria aalge), thick-billed murres (U. lomvia), glaucous gulls (Larus hyperboreus) and glaucous-winged gulls (L. glaucescens).
