Genomic Indicators of Climate Chnage - Genetic and isotopic analysis of Adelie penguin tissue from relict colonies at Cape Bird and Cape Royds, Ross Island, Antarctica.
Entry ID: K016_2011_2013_NZ_1


Summary
Abstract: Our objectives are to identify the molecular basis by which Ad�lie penguins have responded to a -10�C increase in temperature since the last glacial maximum. We will sequence the genomes of a number of ancient Ad�lie penguins from the late Pleistocene. The hypothesis is that a series of molecular based physiological changes have enabled modern Ad�lie penguins to cope with warmer temperatures, in ... View entire text
