Climate research station at risk of falling into the river in a climate-affected landscape

One of Denmark’s most northern research stations is in danger. The permafrost in the surrounding landscape is thawing, leaving the cliffs bare and at risk of being swept away by the river that has moved closer to the research facilities. The Zackenberg research station has become very real and sad proof of what it was designed to investigate: the…

Sled dogs with almost 10,000-year-old genes

Muscle, kidney and liver samples have been taken for analysis from Greenlandic sled dogs. Researchers have compared the DNA from the dogs with DNA from the 9,500-year-old Siberian Zhokhov dog, and a 33,000-year-old Siberian wolf. The analysis shows that humans were able to use the tough sled dog to conquer the brutal Arctic almost 10,000 years ago.

The wolf spider Pardosa glacialis is extremely common in the Arctic tundra. If, in future, it produces two generations of offspring during a season, these may have a significant effect on the prey on which the spider lives. Photo: Jörg U. Hammel

Climate change leads to longer growing seasons in the Arctic. A new study, which has just been published in Proceedings of the Royal Society B, show that predators like wolf spiders respond to the changing conditions and have been able to produce two clutches of offspring during the short Arctic summer.
