Penguins: the flip side of flipper bands - by Nature Video

Scientists often study penguins to see how climate change is affecting the marine ecosystem. To keep track of individual birds they use flipper bands. But a new study shows that these bands reduce the penguins' breeding success and survival, thus biasing the data. For more, listen to the researchers talk about the study on the Nature Podcast http://www.nature.com/nature/podcast/index-2011-01-13.html and read the original research paper http://www.nature.com/nature/journal/v469/n7329/full/nature09630.html
