The slick started to spread westwards and was dispersed by strong currents, so only a few marine animals were killed immediately as a result. Here we draw on the long-term data sets gathered before the spill to show that a population of marine iguanas (Amblyrhychus cristatus) on Sante Fe island suffered a massive 62% mortality in the year after the accident, due to a small amount of residual oil contamination in the sea. Another population on the more remote island of Genovesa was unaffected.</dcterms:abstract> <dc:contributor>Chevalier, Brett</dc:contributor> <dc:language>eng</dc:language> <dc:creator>Wong, Vanessa</dc:creator> <dcterms:isPartOf rdf:resource=""/> <dc:creator>Wikelski, Martin</dc:creator> <dc:date rdf:datatype="">2011-11-11T10:31:24Z</dc:date> <dcterms:bibliographicCitation>Publ. in: Nature ; 417 (2002), 6889. - pp. 607-608</dcterms:bibliographicCitation> <dc:creator>Rattenborg, Niels</dc:creator> <dc:contributor>Rattenborg, Niels</dc:contributor> <dc:contributor>Snell, Howard L.</dc:contributor> </rdf:Description> </rdf:RDF>
