Project Link Modeling Aquatic Insects
DescriptionIn this report, researchers describe the diversity and mean annual modeled biomass of invertebrates that shorebirds consume across 9 sites from Nome, Alaska (USA) to East Bay, Nunavut (Canada).  Warmer temperatures had a positive effect on this food resource availability, with earlier spring warming resulting in earlier insect abundance.  Increased wind had a negative effect on invertebrate availability.
