Reindeers could help mitigate climate change by simply reducing the height and abundance of shrubs on the Arctic Tundra through grazing.
Years after the infamous Anaktuvuk River fire – the largest recorded Arctic tundra fire – researchers have found a link between wildfires in the Arctic tundra and widespread permafrost thaw.
Eurasian cuckoos, one of which is pictured here, are invading North America. Climate change has taken its toll on the Bering Strait's landscapes, which has made it easy for these birds to migrate to new lands. However, this could cause drastic declines of native bird populations.
Researchers from Dartmouth College studied Arctic mosquitoes in western Greenland in order to better understand the impact climate change has on their growth, development and ability to escape predation.
