NATURAL HISTORY •  2012 •  PAPER  • 320 PAGES

Lucky recipient of the NSF Artists and Writer's program, Montaigne spend the Antarctic spring and summer in 2005-2006 working alongside Bill Fraser at Palmer Station on the Antarctic Peninsula, documenting the scientist's decades-long effort to understand the ecology and population dynamics of the Adelie penguin. The western Antarctic Peninsula has warmed faster than any place on earth in recent decades, with average winter temperatures rising by 9 degrees F. since 1950. The population of ice loving Adelie penguins around Palmer Station has declined by 75 percent since 1970.  (ANT323, $17.99)
