Ecological Consequences of Sea-Ice Decline
Description: In this journal paper scientists synthesize recent developments in the study of ecological responses to sea-ice decline after a decade of nine of the lowest arctic sea-ice minima on record, including the historically low minimum in 2012. Sea-ice loss emerges as an important driver of marine and terrestrial ecological dynamics, influencing productivity, species interactions, population mixing, gene flow, and pathogen and disease transmission.
