I launched a new website especially for the black guillemot project. Check out this site http://project-black-guillemot.weebly.com/ to learn all about it!
New website launched
New research paper published
Do check out the paper "Paleodistribution modeling suggests glacial refugia in Scandinavia and out-of-Tibet range expansion of the Arctic fox" that I co-authored together with Marcelo Fuentes-Hurtado, as first author, and Roland Jansson. It was published late last year in Ecology and Evolution. In this paper we used ecological niche modeling to identify the climatic niche of the Arctic fox under current environmental conditions, which enabled us to predict the suitable climatic conditions for the species during the last interglacial, the last glacial maximum and the mid-Holocene. We wanted to provide the climatic context to the demise of the Arctic fox in Europe and putative recolonization from the east, and we wanted to explore the bioclimatic connectivity of the Himalayan–Tibetan Plateau with high-latitude circumpolar areas inhabited by the Arctic fox during the last interglacial and the last glacial maximum to evaluate the “Out-of-Tibet” hypothesis.
