As part of a monitoring study of Adélie and Gentoo penguin colonies, birds occupying nests with eggs and chicks in crèches were counted annually from the 1995/1996 to the 2006/2007 seasons at Stranger Point, Isla 25 de Mayo (King George Island), Antarctica. During the study period the Adélie penguin population showed a decrease of 62%. The number of chicks(More)
We report the first study to compare the contents of pellets and regurgitates of South Polar Skuas, Stercorarius maccormicki, at two breeding colonies on the Antarctic Peninsula. Samples were taken across years from identified breeding pairs at Potter Peninsula in sympatry with 30–40 breeding pairs of Brown Skuas, Stercorarius antarcticus lonnbergi, and(More)
To improve the knowledge on the Antarctic fur seal foraging behavior, evaluate whether changes in its diet are associated with changes in prey availability, and evaluate whether fisheries had negative impacts on Antarctic fur seal populations, a total of 1359 scats of non-breeding males were collected in ten consecutive sampling periods between 1994 and(More)
Knowledge of the feeding ecology of a species at local level is fundamental to determine the relationship between the fluctuations in local marine resources and population dynamics of predators. In this study, we examined the diet of Adélie penguins (Pygoscelis adeliae) during the crèche stage at the Stranger Point colony, South Shetland Islands,(More)
King penguins (Aptenodytes patagonicus) have a circum-subantarctic range though recently, pairs breeding in Antarctica were reported. In a scenario of environmental variability as it is recorded in Antarctic Peninsula and adjacent islands, one ecological response registered in penguins was the shift in its distribution and breeding range probably due to the(More)
To date, studies of food overlap in Antarctic fish have been performed on a mixture of late juvenile and adult stages, leaving the young immature specimens (TL ≤ 10 cm) practically unexplored. We studied diet overlap and potential competition among early juvenile individuals in a coastal notothenioid community at Potter Cove, by analysing the stomach(More)
