Researchers question whether Gulf of Alaska species will return to pre–heat wave conditions.
Hardy tardigrades are much more vulnerable to heat than cold, but they show some signs that they could adapt over time.
Arctic biologists use 25 years of data to find that warmer autumns might be enough to increase the odds of reindeer’s winter survival on Svalbard.
Mammal teeth store a record of the plants they ate, providing clues about the ecosystems in which they lived.
Ancient plant and animal DNA buried in Arctic sediments preserve a 50,000-year history of Arctic ecosystems, suggesting that climate change contributed to mammoth extinction.
