Appendix B. A figure showing the relationship between the effect of temperature and salinity on dive residuals characterized from generalized additive mixed modeling of Chinstrap Penguins and Macaroni Penguins.
Fig. B1. Relationship between the effect of temperature (left) and salinity (right) on dive residuals characterized from generalized additive mixed modeling of (A) Chinstrap Penguins and (B) Macaroni Penguins. Positive and negative Y-axis values reflect larger and shorter dive residuals than predicted, respectively. Chinstrap Penguins extended their dives when they encountered water temperatures between 0.8 and 0.9ºC and salinity values greater than 33.9 PSU. Conversely, Macaroni Penguins showed no detectable preference for water temperature, but a clear preference for water with salinity values higher than 34.0 PSU.
