Summary

This workshop will focus on events that drive damage to Arctic vegetation, their causes, and consequences. With increasing frequency of
events causing damage to Arctic vegetation and an increasing appreciation of the diversity of different events that can cause browning, this workshop provides an opportunity to discuss Arctic browning drivers, subsequent consequences, prepare outputs, and develop future collaborations.

Events of interest include, but are not limited to:

  • Extreme winter warming
  • Icing
  • Frost-drought
  • Herbivore and pathogen outbreaks
  • Tundra fire

The first part of the workshop will include presentations and discussions of Arctic browning caused by climatic and biological events.
The second part will include break-out groups to focus on workshop outputs, collaborations, and future opportunities.

Registration deadline: 8 March 2017.
