Antarctic Foraging Ecology

This research uses a combination of state-of-the-art technology and a multidisciplinary approach to test specific hypotheses regarding interactions among the environment, krill, and Megaptera novaeangliae (humpback whale). Humpback whales are a major predator of Antarctic krill, but there is still little understanding about how these whales utilize this resources.
