UAA biology professor Jeff Welker co-authored an important paper identifying gaps in our knowledge on how climate warming is changing the Arctic. An international team of scientists collaborated on the paper, reviewing dozens of research documents on the effects of circumpolar warming and noting numerous direct effects. They issued a call to action, describing what we need to do in global climate change research and where the public needs to spend its money. The paper was published Sept. 11, 2009 in the journal “Science.”
