The common eider (Somateria mollissima) is a useful species to monitor trace elements in the north because they are harvested around most of the circumpolar Arctic for sport and subsistence, they.

The common eider, Somateria mollissima (Linnaeus ) is a large, heavy marine duck (Johnsgard, ) found along the coastlines of North America and northern Europe (Watson et.

Polar bears consumed eggs and destroyed nests of northern common eiders (Somateria mollissima borealis) and thick-billed murres (Uria lomvia) (Iverson et al., ). Parenthetically, polar bears eat garbage when it is available (Lunn and Stirling, ).

Characteristic species along the Baltic coasts are red-breasted merganser (Mergus serrator), tufted duck (Aythya fuligula), common eider (Somateria mollissima), sandpiper (Actitis hypoleucos), herring gull (Larus argentatus), common tern (Sterna hirundo), Arctic tern (Sterna paradisaea), cormorant (Phalacrocorax carbo sinensis), and waders such.

The Mergini are often classified with the eiders of the genera Polysticta and Somateria, though the latter may be placed in a separate tribe.

An example would be the common eider (Somateria mollissima). This species is widely distributed on northern Atlantic coasts and estuaries. You can write a book review and share your experiences. Other readers will always be interested in your opinion of the books you've read.
