NCoE Tundra is a new Nordic Centre of Excellence, funded by the Top-level Research Initiative (TRI). Our scope is to study the interaction between the ecological phenomenon of top down impacts in food webs and climate vegetation interactions and to integrate this perspective with the man-managed reindeer husbandry and the Sámi culture dependent on it.
The Centre is a joint co-operation between nine research parties in three Nordic countries (Finland, Norway and Sweden). The project consists of eight Work Packages, each of them dealing with their own specific issues. More information can be found through the navigation panel on the top.
New Report Available - Managing for the Future in a Rapidly Changing Arctic
An interagency working group chaired by Interior Deputy Secretary David J. Hayes released a report entitled “Managing for the Future in a Rapidly Changing Arctic” that calls for an integrated management strategy for the rapidly changing Arctic. The report highlights the need for a coordinated approach that uses the best available science to integrate cultural, environmental and economic factors in decision-making about development and conservation.
The annual Tundra Spring meeting arranged in March 18-20 in Tromsø gathered more than 20 Tundra researches. Work package leaders and relevant reseachers from all eight work packages were present.
