Effects of human activity on King penguins on Macquarie IslandEntry ID: pedestrian_king
Abstract: This project empirically measures the effects of human activity on the behaviour of King penguins on Macquarie Island, under ASAC project 1148. This was achieved by collecting behavioural responses of individual penguins exposed to pedestrian approaches across the breeding stages of incubation and guard. Information produced includes minimum approach guidelines.
As of April 2003 all data are ... stored on Hi-8 digital tape, due to be transformed during 2003 - 2004 into a timecoded tab-delimited text format for analysis using the Observer (Noldus Information Technology 2002).
The fields in this dataset are:
Focal birds tape number
Wide angle tape number
Maximum approach distance
