Adélie penguin diet and climate change during the middle to late Holocene in northern Marguerite Bay, Antarctic Peninsula

  title={Ad{\'e}lie penguin diet and climate change during the middle to late Holocene in northern Marguerite Bay, Antarctic Peninsula},
  author={Steven D Emslie and Jennifer D. McDaniel},
  journal={Polar Biology},
We investigated one active and three abandoned Adélie penguin (Pygoscelis adeliae) colonies in northern Marguerite Bay, Antarctic Peninsula, during austral summer 2000. Extinct colonies were located by ground survey on small islands and recognized by concentrations of nest pebbles. The colonies were excavated to recover organic remains from ornithogenic soils. Radiocarbon dates on penguin bone and eggshell provided a 6,000-year occupation history after correction for the marine-carbon reservoir… CONTINUE READING
