Adélie penguins and temperature changes in Antarctica: A lon
Details of Research
TitleAdélie penguins and temperature changes in Antarctica: A long-term viewAbstractDuring the summer months, Adélie penguins and temperature changes in Antarctica: A long-term viewlie penguins represent the dominant biomass of terrestrial Antarctica. Literally millions of individuals nest in ice-free areas around the coast of the continent. Hence, these modern populations of Adélie penguins and temperature changes in Antarctica: A long-term viewlie penguins have often been championed as an ideal biological indicator of ecological and environmental changes that we currently face. In addition, Adélie penguins show an extraordinary record of sub-fossil remains, dating back to the late Pleistocene. At this time, temperatures were much lower than now. Hence, this species offers unique long-term information, at both the genomic and ecological levels, about how a species has responded to climate change over more than 40 000 years.2012 ISZS, Blackwell Publishing and IOZ/CAS.AcknowledgementsThis research has been supported by Antarctica New Zealand and the Italian Antarctic Programme. Genomic studies have been made possible by a grant from the Australia--India Strategic Research Fund to Lambert and Swaminathan and support from the Australian Research Council in the form of a Linkage Grant. We are also grateful for support from respective institutions and Heupink thanks Griffith University for postgraduate support.
