Alaska's Changing Environment is an outreach document that compiles observations of physical and biological change in and around Alaska. The publication, which is intended for a general audience, focuses on the time period 2014 – August 2019, but often provides information from earlier decades for historical context. Using mostly visualizations and...

Despite changes in shrub cover and weather patterns associated with climate change in the Arctic, little is known about the breeding requirements of most passerines tied to northern regions. We investigated the nesting biology and nest habitat characteristics of Smith's Longspurs (Calcarius pictus) in 2 study areas in the Brooks Range of Alaska, US...

Although sex biases in survival and dispersal are thought to be linked to avian mating systems, little is known about these demographic patterns in less common mating strategies such as polygynandry. We investigated breeding-site fidelity, natal philopatry, and apparent survival of the polygynandrous Smith's Longspur (Calcarius pictus) over a 7-yr...

The pathogenic fungus Batrachochytrium dendrobatidis (Bd) has been associated with amphibian declines worldwide but has not been well-studied among Critically Endangered amphibian species in Bolivia. We sampled free-living marbled water frogs Telmatobius marmoratus (Anura: Leptodactylidae) from Isla del Sol, Bolivia, for Bd using skin swabs and qua...

The International Arctic Research Center at UAF is launching its first massive open online course (https://lnkd.in/gESgYAvE)! Climate Change in Arctic Environments makes it easy to gain a basic understanding of modern climate science and the impacts of climate change across atmospheric, marine, terrestrial and human systems. IARC’s Rick Thoman and John Walsh shaped the course by bringing together over 30 experts from across the Arctic. In a series of 8-10 minute videos, they explore the state of Arctic climate change as it relates to sea ice, glaciers, fish, birds, Indigenous knowledge, international policy and more.
