The Beringia Program's project "Trans-Beringia Muskoxen – Creation of Ecological Baselines in an Era of Arctic Warming" concluded its third and final year of collecting data to establish an ecological baseline, or starting point, from which to gauge the extent of bodily change across time and geography. The head of the project, Joel Berger, Professor of Wildlife Conservation at the University of Montana and an internationally known scholar, was able to conduct research on the remote Wrangel Island in Chukotka, making the final year of this project a very successful one. You can read about his work in the Yale Environment 360 Berger's Blog as well as learn about his 2013 research in several Alaska National Parks in the project’s annual report.
