Stacy Schuur ()

Stacy is the lead for the Seabird Tissue Archival and Monitoring Project (STAMP), a long-term multi-agency program. Objectives of STAMP include collecting seabird tissues (primarily eggs) and cryogenic storing them (for decades) in the Marine Environmental Specimen Bank (ESB), and analyzing aliquots for chemical contaminants (e.g., polychlorinated biphenyls [PCBs], organochlorine pesticides [e.g., DDTs and chlordanes], polybrominated diphenyl ethers [BDEs], and metals and organometals [e.g., mercury, methylmercury, and butyltins]) to examine spatial, temporal, and species differences. Additional aliquots are available to other researchers and for future generations. Stacy has also performed organic analysis using techniques such as pressurized fluid extraction (PFE), size exclusion chromatography (SEC), solid-phase extractions (SPE), and gas chromatography/mass spectrometry (GC/MS). In addition to the STAMP work, Stacy has been involved in several other projects including peregrine falcons, brown pelicans, and bottlenose dolphins as well as value assignment for SRMs and participation in interlaboratory comparisons.
