Yan Ropert-Coudert (Université de Strasbourg, Institut Pluridisciplinaire Hubert Curien, Strasbourg, France) and colleagues have written the chapter on sub-Antarctic and Antarctic birds and mammals in the Biogeographic Atlas of the Southern Ocean, newly published by the Scientific Committee on Antarctic Research (SCAR).
The chapter consists of a series of maps and accompanying text describing the at-sea distributions based on sightings made from ships in the Southern Ocean of flying seabirds, penguins, seals and cetaceans. Of ACAP-listed species eight taxa (some species pairs are lumped) of albatrosses, both giant petrels Macronectes spp. and White-chinned Procellaria aequinoctialis and Grey P. cinerea Petrels are included.
