The challenges of detecting subtle population structure and its importance for the conservation of emperor penguins

Abstract:

Understanding the boundaries of breeding populations is of great importance for conservation efforts and estimates of extinction risk for threatened species. However, determining these boundaries can be difficult when population structure is subtle. Emperor penguins are highly reliant on sea ice, and some populations may be in jeopardy as climate change alters sea ice extent and quality. An understanding of emperor penguin population structure is therefore urgently needed. Two previous studie...
