Supplementary summary tables and figures for Peterson et al. 2018 from Foraging and fasting can influence contaminant concentrations in animals: an example with mercury contamination in a free-ranging marine mammal

Supplementary summary tables and figures for Peterson et al. 2018 “Foraging and fasting can influence contaminant concentrations in animals: an example with mercury contamination in a free-ranging marine mammal.” ESM Table 1 provides the sample sizes and summary total mercury (THg) concentrations for adult female and male northern elephant seals (Mirounga angustirostris). ESM Table 2 provides a summary of the change in THg concentrations and the percent change in THg concentrations across fasting and foraging periods. ESM Figure 1 shows one year in the life of an adult female northern elephant seal with the direction of observed changes in tissue THg across specific life history events. ESM Figure 2 shows the changes in male tissue THg concentrations across life history events. ESM Figure 3 shows the proportional change in tissue THg concentrations across life history events in relation to the tissue THg concentrations at the start of the fasting or foraging period.
