Analysis of Australian fur seal diet by pyrosequencing prey DNA in faeces
The pyrosequencing approach presented significantly expands the capabilities of DNA‐based methods of dietary analysis and is suitable for large‐scale diet investigations on a broad range of animals. Expand
The foraging location, diving behavior, dietary composition, and feeding rates of female Emperor Penguins from the Auster and Taylor Glacier colonies in Antarctica were investigated during the 1993 austral winter. Expand
An estimate of population sizes of burrowing seabirds at the Diego Ramirez archipelago, Chile, using distance sampling and burrow-scoping
The Diego Ramirez Islands is the only known breeding site for blue petrels in the southeast Pacific region, holding about 80% of the global population of that species, and with a population ten times larger than any other population in the world. Expand
Entanglement of Australian fur seals in man-made debris in Tasmanian waters
The high incidence of neck collars on Australian fur seals indicates that entanglement is a potential threat to the seal population and this effect may not be reflected in the number of pups born until the animals currently being entangled reach breeding age. Expand
Extreme dives by free-ranging emperor penguins
Penguins diving extremely deeply may have done so as part of their foraging strategy whereas penguins diving for very long times may have been forced to do so by changes in the sea-ice conditions. Expand
Metabolism and body composition of two euphausiids (Euphausia superba and E. crystallorophias) collected from under the pack-ice off Enderby Land, Antarctica
Oxygen consumption, ammonia excretion and phosphate excretion rates were measured for Euphausia superba and E. crystallorophias captured under the pack-ice off Enderby Land, Antarctica, during November 1985, and body compositional features suggest limited contribution of ice-algae to nutrition.

Important marine habitat off east Antarctica revealed by two decades of multi‐species predator tracking
Satellite telemetry data are a key source of animal distribution information for marine ecosystem management and conservation activities. We used two decades of telemetry data from the East AntarcticExpand
At-sea movements and habitat use of adult male Australian fur seals (Arctocephalus pusillus doriferus)
The seals’ foraging ranges overlapped with the ranges of operation of virtually all fin-fish fisheries in southeastern Australia, but fisheries overlap on the other side of the Bass Strait. Expand
Continued population recovery by Australian fur seals
Although some colonies were up and some were down in pup numbers, the 2007 total of 21 882 ± 187 did not differ significantly from a recalculated estimate of 21 545 ± 184 in 2002, suggesting little change to overall population size. Expand
