Census Data of Colonial Penguins in Antarctica from 1977 to 2015 (NCEI Accession 0185113)

browse graphicPreview graphic
Census data were collected from two penguin monitoring sites in the Antarctic peninsula region between 1977 and 2015 using traditional census methods. Seabirds observed in this study are Adélie (Pygoscelis adeliae), chinstrap (P. antarctica), and gentoo (P. papua) penguins. The two study sites are the US AMLR Program sites at Cape Shirreff (Livingston Island) and Copacabana (King George Island) Antarctica.
