Caribou May Be Indirectly Affected by Sea-Ice Loss in the Arctic (2 of 3)

Caption: This is a yearling caribou near Kangerlussuaq, Greenland in May. Research led by Eric Post, a professor of biology at Penn State University, has linked an increasingly earlier plant growing season to the melting of arctic sea ice, a relationship that has consequences for offspring production by caribou in the area.
