Male arctic ground squirrels (Spermophilus parryii) rely on food they cached the previous year for the energy they need to compete for mates each spring. We collected cheek-pouch contents of arctic ground squirrels trapped during three summers (2000–02) as an indication of what squirrels cached....
The Mackenzie Delta region, NWT, has a short growing season and highly seasonal climate, and brown bears (Ursus arctos) there face many challenges obtaining their nutritional requirements. Consumption of meat by brown bears is linked to increases in population density, fecundity, growth and body...

The ecological niche describes the entire set of resources and environmental conditions suitable for species to occur and persist. In northern ecosystems, rapid climate change appears to be altering these conditions and increasing the likelihood of shifts in distribution and abundance of species,...
