Second International Conference on Penguins.

Following the success of the First International Penguin Conference in Dunedin, New Zealand in 1988, the Second International Penguin Conference was held in Cowes on Phillip Island in Victoria from the 24th to 28th August, 1992. Just over 100 delegates from Australia and overseas attended the conference which was hosted by the Phillip Island Penguin Reserve Committee of Management. Fifty-seven papers, including seven posters, were presented on a wide variety of contemporary topics in penguin biology and the abstracts of these are presented below. Agnew, D.J. & K.R. Kerry 1992. Sexual dimorphism in penguins. Ainley, D.G., N. Nur & E.J. Woehler 1992. Factors affecting rookery size and dispersion among Pygoscelid penguins in Antarctica.
