Ainley, David G.
Date: 2012.
In: Polar Record. (2012.), Vol. 48(247) (2012)
Abstract: Account of events leading to non-publication of report by Levick on sexual habits of Adélie penguins, based on his observations as member of Northern Party at Cape Adare during Scott's 1910-13 Terra Nova Antarctic expedition. Report described seemingly aberrant behaviour of young unpaired male and female penguins including necrophilia, sexual coercion, sexual and physical abuse of chicks, as well as non-procreative sex and homosexual behaviour. 100 copies of report were printed and distributed privately, but it was not included in published scientific reports. Full text of Levick's report is given as Appendix 1 on pp. 392-393.
