  • Abstract. An individual-based model is developed to examine mechanisms that potentially underlie the observed constancy in fledging weight (2.8–3.2 kg) of Adélie (Pygoscelis adeliae) penguin chicks, in spite of large variability in the abundance of Antarctic krill (Euphausia superba), the primary food source. The model describes the energetic requirements of the chick, with growth resulting from the difference between assimilated energy and respiration. Parameterizations of these metabolic… CONTINUE READING
