An international team of scientists, including two from the University of Bath, has just arrived back from an expedition studying penguin colonies in the Falkland Islands, South Georgia, and Antarctic Peninsula, reports Phys-org.

Dr. Jane Younger, Prize Fellow and Lecturer in the Milner Centre for Evolution at the University of Bath co-led the expedition with Dr. Gemma Clucas, a seabird biologist who comes from Bath but is now based at Cornell University, (Ithaca, U.S.).

Along with Jane's Ph.D. student, Katie O'Brien, the three scientists were part of a team of nine researchers from six institutions and three countries, all studying different aspects of the penguins' response to climate change.
