Russian and French scientists to study the climate change impact on animals in Greenland and Yamal

Scientists of the Institute of Plant and Animal Ecology (IPAC) of Ural Branch of the Russian Academy of Sciences together with colleagues from the French Academy of Sciences are studying the effect of climate change on the state of Arctic ecosystems. Works will be conducted in Greenland and Yamalo-Nenets Autonomous District (YNAD), said Vasily Sokolov, senior researcher at the Laboratory of Ecology of Birds and Land Invertebrates at the institute.

«We plan the project together with the French Academy of Sciences. We are going to assess the impact of climate change on Arctic terrestrial ecosystems by studying both the dynamics of populations and the composition of species, based on the data from different sites in Greenland and Russia. There are populations of lemming and of several predator species — foxes, hunting gulls (Stercorarius), and owls, — at all the sites but each of the sites has different structures in terms of magnitudes of populations. We are going to use that contrast in our work,» Sokolov said.

The information obtained during the work on the project will contribute to understanding of the processes which take place in the Arctic ecosystems and will help to work out various scenarios. It will also help develop a strategy for preserving existing biodiversity.
