Summary
Abstract: The relationship between colony area and population density of Adélie Penguins Pygoscelis adeliae was examined to determine whether colony area, measured from aerial or satellite imagery, could be used to estimate population density, and hence detect changes in populations over time. Using maps drawn from vertical aerial photographs of Adélie Penguin colonies in the Mawson region, pair density ... View entire text
