Incorporating arctic grazers to Earth-System models

24 February 2020 10:00 to 25 February 2020 16:00 | Conference
reindeer in northern Sweden

Recent evidence demonstrates that herbivores are an important component of ecosystem carbon cycling – to the extent that their regional effects on carbon sequestration are comparable to the anthropogenic greenhouse gas emissions of different countries. Today, both environmental and societal changes occur at faster rate than ever, with the potential to exert unforeseen effects on herbivore populations and their grazing patterns and further ecosystems and carbon dynamics. An urgent challenge for today's scientists is thus, to foresee these changes. Yet, the site- dependency and complexity of herbivore impacts have resulted in that only a few efforts on incorporating herbivore effects to Earth-system models exist.
