... in a colonial seabird, the king penguin ( Aptenodytes patagonicus ). We subjected 77 birds (44 males, 33 females) at various stages of incubation and chick-rearing to three experimental stressors (metal sound, distant approach and capture) known to vary both in their intensity and associated risk, and monitored...

...C. Thouzeau; G. Peters; C. Le Bohec; Y. Le Maho SUMMARY Male king penguins are able to store undigested food in their stomach for up to 3 weeks during their incubation fast, which evidently implies some modification of their digestive process. Using small electronic recorders, we studied the change...
