The advantages for animals migrating to northern breeding grounds are being eroded, as the animals experience lower food availability, higher pathogen pressure and increased predation rates.
The release of Norwegian white-tailed sea eagle fledglings this summer marks a milestone in the restoration of the species in Europe.
More than 38 500 species are threatened with extinction globally. A new tool can help reverse this trend.
A wild idea can be the solution to get fish past power plants.
The NorthWind research centre on wind energy launched its activities today with its first General Assembly.
130 years of catch data show that global warming is contributing to population decline in the world's largest puffin colony.
Changes in seabird breeding productivity reflect hemispheric differences in ocean warming and human use, and call out the need for policies that reduce the impacts of climate change on the world’s marine ecosystems.
Researchers seek to use turbulent eddies in the river to safely guide salmon and eels past hydropower plants.
This year, a major campaign is being launched in northwest Russia aimed at preventing the spread of alien species to Russian parts of the Arctic. Scientists fear that seeds, insects and parasites will establish themselves in the vulnerable northern regions, and ask travelers to take action.
Scientists have developed a new method to map and monitor alien species in the polar regions.
This study signals the need for fisheries management to account for ecosystem constraints when setting catch limits in periods of low forage fish biomass.
Reduced availability of key prey forces adult puffins to fly further from their colonies to find food. Meanwhile, their chicks starve at the nests.
The Scandinavian and Finnish brown bear populations are among the largest in Europe but were until recently separated. A new study by Norwegian, Swedish, and Finnish researchers demonstrates that connectivity has been restored with decent exchange of individuals and genes between countries.
Using data from five different marine ecosystems, researchers have tested the hypothesis of predator‐pit dynamics for forage fish. By examining the consumption of fish by seabirds and the effect of such predation on fish population dynamics, they found that seabird-induced mortality of forage fish varies with fish abundance.
