In Arctic, an interdisciplinary team has been working at a spectacular East Greenland site for the past 12 years. The researchers focused on little auks, a tiny seabird which forage by the million in the Greenland Sea. Using miniature electronic trackers, they follow the birds amongst sea-ice and glaciers, where animals face rising temperatures and pollutant levels. To better understand ecological dynamics, the scientists reconstruct their presence over the last millennia.
