Osprey as Canaries: bellwethers of environmental contamination, Erick Greene -Division of Biological Sciences, and Wildlife Biology Program University of Montana UM Professor,
Erick Greene - In a new study with Heiko Langner (Director of the Environmental Biogeochemistry Laboratory at The University of Montana, www.umt.edu/geosciences/faculty/langner/home.htm), Rob Domenech (Director of Raptor View Research Institute, www.raptorview.org) and local high school students, we found that ospreys in western Montana have exceedingly high levels of mercury (several orders of magnitude higher than the highest allowable levels in humans). We are starting a long-term monitoring program to identify the sources of mercury.
