New Paper: Long-term breeding phenology shift in royal penguins

A new paper involving Environment Institute members Corey Bradshaw, Barry Brook and Damien Fordham as well as Mark Hindell (University of Tasmania), Knowles Kerry (Australian Antarctic Division), Cindy Hull (University of Tasmania) and Clive McMahon (University of Tasmania and Charles Darwin University) has recently been published in the journal Ecology and Evolution.

The paper titled ‘Long-term breeding phenology shift in royal penguins’ looks at the breeding life cycle of the royal penguin and investigates if it is being influenced by seasonal and inter annual variations in climate. The findings suggest that the unifying factor underpinning phenological trends in eastern Antarctica is resource availability.
