population ecology, wildlife, human/environment interaction
Long-term population fluctuations and ecology of wildlife on arctic and alpine tundra. Human dimensions and indigenous knowledge of arctic environments, and integration with scientific research, leading to predictive ecological models and wildlife management. Multi-scale spatial and temporal aspects. Seasonal migrations and long-term population shifts, physical condition, food habits of arctic herbivores, and their interactions with plants and snow. Development of wildlife research priorities and guidelines based on consensus with local and regional Inuit communities. Indigenous customary practices and governance leading to conservation of biological/biocultural diversity.
