New UF/IFAS Publication: "Effects of Oil Spills on Marine and Coastal Wildlife"

I wanted to make you aware of a great resource that just came out by Dr. Holly K Ober,assistant professor and Extension specialist with the Department of Wildlife Ecology and Conservation at the University of Florida. The 4-page fact sheet provides an overview of direct and indirect effects of oil spills on wildlife, factors influencing the degree of impact, susceptibility of various types of wildlife, and the history of oil spills in the Gulf of Mexico. You can access the fact sheet by copying and pasting the following link:http://edis.ifas.ufl.edu/pdffiles/UW/UW33000.pdf
