High mitogenomic evolutionary rates and time dependency.
Using entire modern and ancient mitochondrial genomes of Adélie penguins (Pygoscelis adeliae) that are up to 44000 years old, we show that the rates of evolution of the mitochondrial genome are twoExpand

A reversal of fortunes: climate change ‘winners’ and ‘losers’ in Antarctic Peninsula penguins
Climate change is a major threat to global biodiversity. Antarctic ecosystems are no exception. Investigating past species responses to climatic events can distinguish natural from anthropogenicExpand

Circum-Antarctic coastal environmental shifts during the Late Quaternary reflected by emerged marine deposits
This review assesses the circumpolar occurrence of emerged marine macrofossils and sediments from Antarctic coastal areas in relation to Late Quaternary climate changes. Radiocarbon ages of theExpand

Integrating Stomach Content and Stable Isotope Analyses to Quantify the Diets of Pygoscelid Penguins
Stomach content analysis (SCA) and more recently stable isotope analysis (SIA) integrated with isotopic mixing models have become common methods for dietary studies and provide insight into theExpand

Abandoned penguin colonies and environmental change in the Palmer Station area, Anvers Island, Antarctic Peninsula
Six abandoned colonies of Adelie penguin (Pygoscelis adeliae) were excavated near Palmer Station, Anvers Island, Antarctic Peninsula, to investigate the occupation history of this species. SedimentsExpand

Abrupt recent shift in δ13C and δ15N values in Adélie penguin eggshell in Antarctica
Stable isotope values of carbon (δ13C) and nitrogen (δ15N) in blood, feathers, eggshell, and bone have been used in seabird studies since the 1980s, providing a valuable source of information onExpand

Diving behavior of blue-footed boobies Sula nebouxii in northern Peru in relation to sex, body size and prey type
We studied the diving behavior and diet of the sexually size-dimorphic blue-footed booby Sula nebouxii (BFB) breeding on Isla Lobos de Tierra, Peru, to evaluate whether sexual dimor- phism isExpand
