Occupancy surveys of Adelie penguin breeding distribution in the Australian Antarctic Territory
Entry ID: ASAC_2722_Occupancy_Surveys

[ Update this Record ]

Abstract: The current distribution of Adelie penguin breeding colonies in the AAT is being mapped through a series of 'occupancy' surveys.

A GIS of potential Adelie penguin breeding habitat was developed to structure the overall search effort. Information about the GIS is given in Southwell et al. (2009) and in the child metadata record 'Potential Adelie penguin breeding habitat in the Australian Antarctic ... View entire text
