Penguins are noisy, as any visitor to an aquarium knows. Penguins may be noisy in others ways too, according to a new study published in Nature Communications. Scientists have long used Adélie penguin populations to monitor the health of the Southern Ocean and to understand how major factors such as fishing and climate change impact the oceans and the animals that rely on them. Now an extensive analysis of all known data on Adélie penguin populations over the last 35 years has found that only a small fraction of year-to-year changes in Adélie penguin populations can be attributed to measurable factors such…

Of all the newborns to receive specialized care in the Stony Brook Children’s Hospital Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU), nearly 100 per year have a birthweight of 3 pounds or less. At that size, head circumference is often no larger than an orange, hands can barely grip an adult thumb and a foot — when birth weight hovers just over 1 pound — can be as small as a penny. Thankfully, Suffolk County’s smallest and most vulnerable citizens have access to technology and expert care delivered by Suffolk County’s premier neonatal team. In support of this tradition of excellence, Jim…
