Penguin Foraging Reveals Phytoplankton Spatial Structure in the Ross Sea
Entry ID: NSF-ANT11-42174_1

Abstract: The Ross Sea is believed to contributes a huge portion (~1/3) of the primary productivity of the Southern Ocean and is home to a similar large portion of the top predators (e.g. 38% of Adelie, 28% of Emperor penguins) of the Antarctic sea ice ecosystem. The trophic pathways in this system are complex in both space and time. One scenario for the Ross Sea ecosystem is that diatoms are grazed by ... View entire text
