Dana's current research involves using stable isotope analysis to estimate the diet of humpback whales (Megaptera novaeangliae) within Kodiak waters. She will then use this information with published diet information on other apex predators in the Kodiak region to develop a prey resource overlap index. This index will allow her to determine if there is variability in prey-use overlap among apex predators within the Kodiak archipelago.
