Go with the floe / Alison George.

Title: Go with the floe / Alison George.
Author(s): George, Alison.
Date: 2002.
In: New Scientist. (2002.), Vol. 176(2374/5) (2002)
Abstract: Gives opinions of various biologists on present climatic conditions affecting sea ice and so survival of Adélie penguin colonies in Antarctica, particularly on Antarctic Peninsula and Ross Island. Recent iceberg positioning by Ross Island forced Cape Crozier colony to reduction in chick numbers by 90% in January 2002. Study by Emslie has dated first colonies on coast of Ross Sea to 6000 years ago.
