...Katsufumi Sato; Kozue Shiomi; Greg Marshall; Gerald L. Kooyman; Paul J. Ponganis SUMMARY Emperor penguins ( Aptenodytes forsteri ), both at sea and at an experimental dive hole, often have minimal surface periods even after performance of dives far beyond their measured 5.6 min aerobic dive limit...

...-infrared spectrophotometer was developed and used to measure myoglobin (Mb) O 2 saturation levels in the locomotory muscle during dives of emperor penguins ( Aptenodytes forsteri ). Two distinct patterns of muscle O 2 depletion were observed. Type A dives had a monotonic decline, and, in dives near the ADL...

... in emperor penguin ( Aptenodytes forsteri ) adults and chicks with spectrophotometric and RNase protection assays to evaluate production of their large Mb-bound O 2 stores. Mean pectoral Mb concentration and Mb mRNA content increased throughout the pre-fledging period and were 15-fold and 3-fold greater...

... accumulation),emperor penguins ( Aptenodytes forsteri ) were equipped with either a blood partial pressure of oxygen ( P O 2 ) recorder or a blood sampler while they were diving at an isolated dive hole in the sea ice of McMurdo Sound, Antarctica. Arterial P O 2 profiles (57 dives) revealed that (a) pre-dive P...

We experimentally tested the hypothesis that kidnapping behaviour was the result of high residual levels of prolactin (PRL), a hormone involved in parental behaviour. Penguins with artificially decreased PRL...

A 5.6 min ADL for emperor penguins had been previously determined with lactate measurements after dives of <50 m depth. In order to assess locomotory patterns during such dives, longitudinal...
