FRagility of Arctic Goose habitat: Impacts of Land use, conservation and Elevated temperatures
  • Biology

  • Project
The FRAGILE program, which stands for "FRagility of Arctic Goose habitat: Impacts of Land use, conservation and Elevated temperatures", is a project to investigate the relationship between changes in the breeding patterns of Arctic geese, the health of the Arctic tundra regions of Northwestern Europe, and global warming. It is a collaborative project among many European institutions, including the Unit for Polar Ecology at the Netherlands Institute of Ecology (NIOO-KNAW), as well as various environmental institutes and university research centers. The research conducted by the FRAGILE program seems to indicate that changes in land use patterns as well as measures to protect Arctic geese are currently having significant negative implications for global climate change.
