Measuring current and future impacts of a changing Arctic on biodiversity: a pan-Arctic perspective

Date/time: December 3, 10:30-12:00

Room: San Siro 2

Session organizer: Louise McRae, Zoological Society of London

This session sets out to examine current and future trends in Arctic biodiversity. We will reveal species trends at a pan-Arctic scale and discuss how this approach can be used as a tool to inform policy. There will also be a focus on how a changing climate is causing observable and predicted changes in distribution and demography of species. Finally we hear about the lines of evidence for ongoing changes in Arctic vegetation, stemming from both ground observations and satellite data. These findings are then built-on with statistical models to predict ecological changes under future climates and how the Arctic tundra in turn influences the global climate system.  

Session theme: Arctic change, resilience and adaption
