The history of the discovery of emperor penguin colonies, 1902-2004 / Barbara Wienecke.

Title: The history of the discovery of emperor penguin colonies, 1902-2004 / Barbara Wienecke.
Author(s): Wienecke, Barbara.
Date: 2010.
In: Polar Record. (2010.), Vol. 46(238) (2010)
Abstract: Summarises history of discovery of Aptenodytes forsteri colonies. Emperor penguins were probably first seen on Cook's 1773-75 expedition but were not recorded as separate species until 1844. First breeding colony was found in 1902, and further 32 colonies were sighted over next century. Total number of colonies is still unknown, but satellite technology is now aiding process of discovery.
