U.S. Geological Survey Biological Science Report: USGS/BRD/BSR-2002-0001

Arctic Refuge Coastal Plain Terrestrial Wildlife Research Summaries

The Arctic Refuge Coastal Plain Terrestrial Wildlife Summaries report has been compiled in HTML format at: http://alaska.usgs.gov/BSR-2002/index.html

This report is available for download to your computer by choosing from the links provided below. The report is distributed in Adobe PDF format. Your computer must have the Adobe Reader software installed to view or print the document. The Adobe Reader software is available without cost from:http://get.adobe.com/reader/

The total digital file size of this report is large. We suggest you consider the file size(s) with respect to your computer's available disk space, as well as the speed of your Internet connection, before selecting from the options below. To accommodate persons with slower or less reliable Internet connections, we have partitioned the 'Complete Report' into 10 subsections, so it can be downloaded in smaller increments. The subsections are not independent reports. Those persons with relatively fast or stable Internet connections would likely prefer to download the complete report as a single file.

A printed copy of the report can be ordered from the USGS Earth Science Information Center in Anchorage, AK.

IMPORTANT NOTE

Take care in exactly how you 'click' on the link(s) below

PLEASE READ FURTHER

We recommend that you physically transfer (download) the file(s) to your computer's hard disk. That way you can view or print the document in subsequent days, without having to revisit this website. If you already have the Adobe Reader software installed (on a typical personal computer) and you use your mouse's left button to click on the links below, your computer will likely open the Adobe software automatically, and download the document directly into an Adobe viewer window. You may read and print the document at this point, but you will not be able to save the file. So, once you exit (close) the Adobe software program, the document will vanish, and you will have to revisit this website and repeat the entire process to view the document again in the future. You may find this frustrating because the file sizes are large and the download times will be substantial.

Here are instructions for downloading the file(s) directly to your computer's hard disk.

For Windows-based Personal Computers:

If you are using an Internet Explorer Web-browser and you want to save the document(s) to your hard disk, then use your mouse's right button ('right-click' once) to select the link(s) below, and then choose the 'Save target as' option. Your computer will then prompt you to identify a destination directory on your hard disk.

If you are using a Netscape Web-browser and you want to save the document(s) to your hard disk, then use your mouse's right button ('right-click' once) to select the link(s) below, and then choose the 'Save link as' option. Your computer will then prompt you to identify a destination directory on your hard disk.

For Apple Computers:

If you are using a Netscape Web-browser and you want to save the document(s) to your hard disk (which may be your only option anyway), then use your mouse's left button and click once to select the link(s) below. This will cause your computer to open the "Download Manager" window. The file's name will appear at the bottom of a list within the Download Manager window. Next, double-click (left-mouse button) on the filename. This will download the file to your desktop, after which you will be prompted to "optionally" specify a different destination directory (other than the desktop).


Once you have downloaded the file(s) to your hard disk, start the Adobe Reader software and use the File->Open option to retrieve the document(s) from your destination directory.

When the file(s) are no longer of interest, you should consider deleting them from your hard disk to restore the disk space for other uses.

The estimated download times in the table below are based average Internet traffic conditions. The actual download times that you experience will be dependent on how busy our server is, and the amount of traffic between our computer and yours. Download times could be much longer during periods of peak traffic.
