Modeling Aquatic Insects

Project Summary
Project CodeALCC2011-08
Project Lead(s) University of Alaska, Anchorage, Alaska Natural Heritage Program
DescriptionThis study will enable us to better predict climate-related changes in the timing and duration of insect prey availability for arctic-breeding shorebirds. Using Arctic Shorebird Demographic Network data (see ARCT2010-11), these investigators will develop mathematical models that relate the timing and duration of insect emergence and activity to accumulated temperature, weather, and other environmental variables. Resulting models will predict future changes in the timing of arctic insect availability based on climate change projections.
