PEA-Puccinellia in the European Arctic -Who is who, who is where, and why?

Arctic plants are rather recent (Late Tertiary-Pleistocene) immigrants or recently evolved. Two major processes in this evolution seem to have been hybridization and polyploidization, leading to complex relation patterns, and range of intermediate variant s between species. Thus, to untangle the ...

Why Is the Sea Ice Melting so Fast? Improving Understanding of Melt Processes on First-Year Arctic Sea Ice

The area of summer sea ice in the Arctic has been decreasing since satellite observations started in 1979, and the area of ice lost in summer during the last five years is far beyond what was predicted by climate models. Furthermore there has been a shift from thicker multi-year ice to thinner f...
