STRAIGHT UP SCIENCE: Emperor Penguins with Dr. Jenouvrier

Antarctica’s majestic emperor penguins have a complex life cycle to survive in this harsh environment.  However, climate change threatens to disrupt their delicate balance.  Dr. Stephanie Jenouvrier of the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution (WHOI) studies the ways these creatures are affected, and what this means for the planet.

For more information about Dr. Jenouvrier, visit her page at the WHOI site.  Her latest research on penguins is detailed in this WHOI press release, and was published in the journal Global Change Biology.
