The studies are carried out on the tundra stretch of Nordenskiöldkysten, Spitsbergen, where barnacle goose and pink-footed goose are the main herbivores, and arctic fox and polar bear serve as top predators. We focus on three main themes.

  1. Climate change and the phenology mismatch theory. More
  2. Population dynamics. More
  3. Polar bear predatory behaviour. More
