AIAS Fellows' Seminar: Toke Thomas Høye, Jens Christian Schou Junior Fellow

Arctic ecological change - species and community responses to climate change

Info about event


Monday 6 October 2014,  at 14:15 - 16:15


The AIAS Auditorium, Building 1632, Høegh-Guldbergs Gade 6B, 8000 Aarhus C


Arctic terrestrial ecosystems are ideal models for studies of the ecological impacts of climate change, because the Arctic is warming faster than the rest of the planet and vast areas are largely unaffected by human land use, which might otherwise be a confounding factor. Although our basic understanding of how Arctic ecosystems are structured and function is still limited, we are quickly covering new ground, because of their simplicity relative to lower latitude ecosystems. This talk will outline how studies of these simpler ecosystems can advance general ecological theory and provide examples from ongoing work in Greenland.
