Winter is coming but is getting warmer!

This new video podcast from Eveline Krab is dedicated to winter ecology and shows that climate warming is also happening in winter! In this video, Eveline highlights the main results of her paper recently accepted for publication in Journal of Ecology titled “Winter warming effects on tundra shrub performance are species-specific and dependent on spring conditions“.

Eveline’s video can also be found on the Journal of Ecology YouTube channel (English subtitles available).

 

Excited about winter climate change? You can also watch this previous video from Gesche Blume-Werry about the effects of short-term snow cover reduction as well as all our other video podcasts.

Eveline Krab’s main interests are to understand how environmental changes such as climate change and shifts in vegetation composition may induce changes in ecosystem processes. Most of her research up to date has focused on soil fauna and their activities in arctic ecosystems under future climate scenarios. She is especially interested in how climatic changes alter interactions between soil organisms, their relation to plants and the consequences for carbon and nitrogen cycling. To answer her research questions she uses different approaches at different scales, such as laboratory incubations, field climate manipulation experiments and larger-scale field sampling campaigns. Eveline is currently an associate senior lecturer at the Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences in Uppsala in the Department of Soil and Environment.
