Asking the Auks About Climate Change in the Arctic

Claremont Discourse presents:

Nina Karnovsky, Assistant Professor of Biology, Pomona College
Thursday, February 1st, 4:15 PM, 2007

Founders Room, Honnold/Mudd Library

The controversy over global warming and climate change is often argued using measurements of ice core samples and ocean levels. What can we learn by "interviewing" living creatures? Every summer millions of seabirds called little auks (also known by the scientific species name, Alle alle) migrate to the High Arctic to raise their chicks. There they feed on tiny crustaceans that are abundant in Arctic waters. Each summer, Professor Nina Karnovsky, Assistant Professor of Biology at Pomona College, follows these birds, taking her students with her. Professor Karnovsky will talk about how she and her students measure the twin benchmarks of feeding and breeding of little auks in a rapidly changing environment.
