Significant chick loss after early fast ice breakup at a high-latitude emperor penguin colony
Abstract Emperor penguins require stable fast ice, sea ice anchored to land or ice shelves, on which to lay eggs and raise chicks. As the climate warms, changes in sea ice are expected to lead toExpand
Population dynamics of three emperor penguin colonies in the Ross Sea
Emperor penguins were found to be breeding in the Ross Sea region in Antarctica in 1902 and since then there has been monitoring of the 7 Ross Sea colonies, but this has been quite inconsistent. ThisExpand
Rise and fall of Ross Sea emperor penguin colony populations: 2000 to 2012
Abstract There are seven emperor penguin (Aptenodytes forsteri) colonies distributed throughout the traditional boundaries of the Ross Sea from Cape Roget to Cape Colbeck. This coastline is c. 10% ofExpand
First Recorded Loss of an Emperor Penguin Colony in the Recent Period of Antarctic Regional Warming: Implications for Other Colonies
The decline and loss of the Emperor Island colony is related to a well-documented rise in local mean annual air temperature and coincident decline in seasonal sea ice duration, providing empirical support for recent studies that highlighted the vulnerability of emperor penguins to changes in sea iceduration and distribution.

Effects of giant icebergs on two emperor penguin colonies in the Ross Sea, Antarctica
The arrival in January 2001 in the south-west Ross Sea of two giant icebergs, C16 and B15A, subsequently had dramatic affects on two emperor penguin colonies. B15A collided with the north-west tongueExpand

Study at Cape Crozier, Ross Island, show that breeding groups primarily decreased at the periphery of the colony, with continued human contact, influence by catching actions and low passing aircrafts, and a final conclusion on the quantitative and even qualitative status of Adélie Penguins must still be sought.

Moulting starvation in emperor penguin (Aptenodytes forsten) chicks
The moult fast in emperor penguin chicks was studied during January 1990 at Drescher Inlet, eastern Weddell Sea and chicks left the inlet before moult was completed, although the sea-ice was still stable. Expand
Bernard Stonehouse: biologist, writer, and educator
Abstract This is the first in a series of biographies entitled ‘Children of the Golden Age’, the purpose of which is to describe the background and contributions of a number of significant livingExpand
Habitat Use by Weddell Seals and Emperor Penguins Foraging in the Ross Sea, Antarctica1
There is more extensive overlap between juvenile seals and adult penguins, and shifts in prey abundance and/or distribution would likely affect these two groups similarly, while juvenile penguins appear to avoid inter- and intra- specific competition by leaving the Ross Sea once they molt. Expand

“First on the Antarctic Continent.”
SOME rather venomous criticism of my book, “First on the Antarctic Continent,” has appeared in one or two periodicals. Had my book been intended to be what it is not—a scientific report upon our workExpand
