Title: Reproductive strategies of Antarctic penguins. 1993-94
Description:
Abstract:
In English: This dataset contains information on: -To establish the factors determining the reproductive success in a Chinstrap penguin Pygoscelis antarctica colony. -To study the reproductive behaviour patterns of this species and its adaptive value. -To evaluate the implications of colonial breeding for this species. Activities: During the campaign, five studies were carried out in the penguin colony of Vapor Col on Deception Island. The first studied the relevance of the size and quality of the nest for reproductive success and the nest maintenance behaviour of adults during the incubation period. The second, studied the growth of chicks and the physical condition of parents in some broods which had been experimentally reduced to one chicks (its sibling was moved to another nest) and in families with two chicks. Another study related the asymmetries of growth between siblings with the physical condition of adults measured by biochemical blood parameters. The fourth study was focused on the factors determining the time when chicks of certain size are left on their own in the colony by their parents, and the reasons why certain chicks are left at an earlier age than others.And lastly, the process of formation and the function of the creches; were studied and a new hypothesis was proposed about it's function. En Espanol: Esta ficha contiene informacion sobre: -Determinar los factores determinantes del Exito reproductivo en una poblacion del pingB8ino barbijo (Pygoscelis Antarctica). -Estudiar los patrones de conducta reproductiva de esta especie y su valor adaptativo. -Evaluar las implicaciones que tiene la reproduccion en grandes colonias para estas aves. Actividades realizadas: Durante la campana se realizaron cinco estudios parciales en la pingainera de Vapour Col en la isla Decepcion. En el primero se estudio la importancia del tamano y calidad del nido para el Exito reproductivo y la conducta de mantenimiento del nido por los adultos durante la incubacion. En el segundo se estudio el crecimiento de pollos y la condicion fisica de los adultos en familias experimentalmente reducidas a un pollo (el otro hermano fue llevado a otro nido) y en familias con dos pollos.Tambien se estudio la correlacion de la simetria de crecimiento entre hermanos con la condicion fisica de los adultos medida por parametros bioquimicos de la sangre. El cuarto estudio se centro sobre los factores determinantes del momento en que los pollos de cierto tamano son dejados solos por sus padres en la colonia, y por quCciertos pollos son dejados a edades mas tempranas que otros.Por altimo se estudiaron los procesos de formacion y la funcion de las creches o guarderCas de pollos, y se planteo una nueva hipotesis sobre dicha funcion.
