Abstract

Researchers report the first known isolation of Campylobacter jejuni subsp. jejuni in the Antarctic region. Three macaroni penguins on Bird Island in the South Georgian archipelago were infected with the bacterium and the strains were similar to those found in the Northern hemisphere. It is not clear how the bacterium was introduced into this remote area.
