      Arktis blir stadig varmere og utbredelsen av havis blir mindre. Det forandrer leveområdet til de mange artene som er avhengige av havis. Isbjørnen er avhengig av havis for å jakte på sel, og økende lengde på den isfrie ...
    • Northward range expansion in spring‐staging barnacle geese is a response to climate change and population growth, mediated by individual experience
