Animal Population Dynamics in the Arctic

Human expansion and climate change, by contributing to rapid changes in many ecological processes, can have dramatic consequences on wildlife. This is especially true for Arctic migratory species, where a mismatch between resource availability and migration arrival date in the breeding range can have cascading effects that reduce reproductive success, causing populations decline.

Planning Workshop for Counter Climates: Petro-Infrastructure and Indigenous land, water, and atmosphere protection in Canada and the American Midwest.

There is increasing pressure in Alberta -- the top oil producing province in Canada -- to extract and transport oil and gas to American markets. With governmental efforts in Alberta to counter Indigenous and environmental group resistance to Alberta’s oil and gas economy and exports, there is an urgent need to synthesize existing data and visualize/illustrate plural impacts of oil and gas infrastructure on Indigenous nations and nonhuman species.
