In this course, you gain an introduction to and understanding of ecology in the Arctic. The Arctic regions are sensitive to climate variations, and you learn about how these are affecting marine, terrestrial, and freshwater species. We focus specifically on the adaptations organisms require to thrive in these ecosystems.
