Sensitivity analysis for parameters of predatory species CCAMLR Ecosystem Monitoring Program
Following the request of the Scientific Committee of CCAMLR to conduct sensitivity analyses on existing data regarding predator breeding biology parameters, this report presents such a treatment of data obtained at the Magnetic Island Adélie penguin colony in Prydz Bay in the 1987/88 and 1988/89 breeding seasons.
The data on the following parameters were analyzed:
- adult weight on arrival at breeding colonies;
- duration of first incubation shift;
- duration of adult foraging trips;
- breeding success; and
- chick fledging weight.
