At present this project combines data series on marine (the white-tailed eagle) and terrestrial raptors (the tawny owl) collected through different NFR programs. It is currently associated with NFR project: EnviStress. High priority is on publishing results on the effects of physical and biological variation on the accumulation and effects of new and legacy persistent organic pollutants (POPs) and toxic elements in both terrestrial and marine raptors. In addition, the present work includes studying the impact of environmental contaminants on physiological stress in both white-tailed eagle chicks and tawny owls. Field data is collected annually. The project provides new and important insight into the accumulation and effects of both POPs and heavy metals in terrestrial and marine food webs.
