Description

Penguin Biology is the first broad-based collection of biological and ecological studies of these unique birds to be published since 1975. Topics have since become broad ecological hypotheses, not species-specific descriptions, and new technology has taken observations into the oceanic depths. Penguin Biology shows new techniques and the applications mad of them in contemporary biological and evolutionary theory.

Penguin Biology is an invaluable reference for ornithologists, animal behaviorists, animal physiologists, marine zoologists, marine ecologists, evolutionary biologists, and Antarctic researchers.

Reviews

"The papers included in this review volume represent a valuable expansion of presentations from the First International Conference on Penguins... This is an important book. It is of value to those interested in penguins, but more generally to those interested in the processes involved. Each chapter is loaded with information, much of it gleaned under difficult field conditions." --THE AUK
