Papers presenting the results of a programme to study the Svalbard Eider (Somateria mollissima) populations conducted in the 1980's by the Norwegian Polar Research Institute (Norsk Polarinstitutt). Studies of breeding colonies (locations, size, feeding areas, etc) of both Common Eider (Somateria mollissima) and King Eider (Somateria spectabilis) in the Svalbard archipelago are valuable for the future management of eiders.
