Publications

The following list includes site accounts of Greenland White-fronted Goose studies referred to in the text, as well as references which have drawn upon data presented in this report, key works for providing general information or publications which have been generated during the last few years of the research and conservation programme.  Readers are referred to the extensive bibliography compiled and presented for the Wexford Workshop by David Stroud in Stroud (1992) for a full listing of all existing literature on the sub-species. This is in the process of being updated and will be loaded onto this web site soon. The 12 year report can be accessed here.
