  Research Group: Scottish Oceans Institute
Deep-diving air-breathing predators such as king penguins and elephant seals face an almost daily challenge of finding prey at depth (including krill and fish that may live hundreds of metres deep). Read more

Flying underwater: multidisciplinary approaches to understanding the swimming dynamics of penguins
