Tomme reder i Nordatlanten

Havfugle kolonierne i Nordatlanten skrumper. I løbet af de sidste 10 år er ynglesuccesen for bl.a. Lunden og den Arktiske Terne faldet drastisk, og det er især tydeligt på Island, der ellers plejer at være havfuglenes Serengeti.

Film om uddannelser og forskning i Arktis

AlphaFilm besøger i disse dage Naturinstituttet i Nuuk for at lave en række korte film, der fortæller om de mange muligheder, man som ung har for uddannelse og forskning i Grønland og ikke mindst ved Naturinstituttet.

To catch small animals, the scientists use so-called Malaise traps named after the biologist René Malaise who made the first model. Here, biologist Mikko Tiusanen checks one of the traps. The insects are caught by the tent walls and led to a container with alcohol. Photo: Peter Bondo Christensen.
Many different types of traps have been used to obtain a general idea of the Zackenberg fauna. Here, biologist Riikka Kaartinen from Helsinki University uses yellow pan traps to catch flies and wasps. Photo: Tomas Roslin.
Different kinds of small nets and artificial sticky flowers are also used to catch insects at the arctic tundra. Photo: Peter Bondo Christensen.
