Through recent, as well as long-term changes in polar ecosystems, potential impacts on breeding species of the Antarctic are inevitable. This study aims to distinguish environmental factors that drive temporal changes in the breeding pair numbers of bird species in the maritime Antarctic. Long term monitoring of breeding pair numbers yielded time s...
Pelagic seabirds spend most of their life, often except the breeding period, on the open ocean far off the continental coasts. Therefore it has long been difficult to investigate the ecology of their entire life history. For our study we analyse 47 Brown Skua (Stercorarius antarcticus lonnbergi) migration cycles from 28 individuals breeding on King...
Increasing pressure from human activities leads to negative impacts on the Antarctic terrestrial environment. The southwestern part of King George Island, South Shetland Islands, is characterized by high biodiversity and rich fossil deposits. The operation of six permanent stations and an airstrip turns the Fildes Peninsula into a superregional log...
With its airport and a high density of stations and field huts, the Fildes Peninsula forms the logistical centre of King George Island (South Shetland Islands) and the logistical hub for the northern Antarctic Peninsula area as a whole. Due to the severe overlapping of various interests, such as research, the conservation of flora and fauna, the pr...
