Measurements of factors affecting the timing of nest relief in Adelie penguins at Cape Bird
Entry ID: K121_1986_1987_NZ_1

Abstract: The timing of nest relief is crucial to the nesting success of adelie penguins. Experiments were conducted to test whether the physiological conditions of the female will determine how long she stays at sea to feed. Stressed females should stay at sea longer and the male mate would have to shorten their foraging trip to match the date of hatching accurately. At least one adult penguin was banded ...
