Measurements of heart rate, blood oxygenation, redox state of cytochrome oxidase and blood flow in peripheral tissues of Adelie penguins that have been stressed using an infrared spectrometer
Entry ID: K032_1999_2000_NZ_1

Abstract: Adelie penguins (Pygoscelis adeliae) live and breed in an physiologically demanding environment that requires individual birds to respond rapidly to fluctuating environmental conditions. The physiological and metabolic response of adelie penguins to stresses (helicopters, the presence of people and handling) were assessed and monitored using a visible/near infrared optical spectrometer attached to ...
