Organized by Dorthe Dahl-Jensen, Nicole Wilson, Elizabeth Worden and Lauren Candlish, University of Manitoba as an Arctic Science Partnership Initiative.

The Ministry of Higher Education and Science has just granted almost DKK 37 million to a targeted effort to unravel the importance of the ongoing climate change in the Arctic environment, how quickly the changes take place and how they affect the rest of the planet. The project brings all the Arctic stakeholders of the Danish Realm together in one network.
As the sea ice shrinks in the Arctic, the plankton community that produces food for the entire marine food chain is changing. New research shows that a potentially toxic species of plankton algae that lives both by doing photosynthesis and absorbing food may become an important player in the Arctic Ocean as the future sea ice becomes thinner and thinner.
Climate change is more pronounced in the Arctic than anywhere else on the planet, raising concerns about the ability of wildlife to cope with the new conditions. A new study shows that rare insects are declining, suggesting that climatic changes may favour common species.

Scientists are combining artificial intelligence and advanced computer technology with biological know how to identify insects with supernatural speed. This opens up new possibilities for describing unknown species and for tracking the life of insects across space and time

There is a series of ECR workshops running alongside the upcoming Arctic Frontiers conference that may be applicable across the ASP network: https://www.arcticfrontiers.com/young/arctic-frontiers-phd-workshop/

Greenland Institute of Natural Resources invites young researchers from all scientific branches to participate in a new round of applications for PhD. and postdoctoral stipends.

Congratulations to Tonya Burgers, the Poster to Publication winner of the Marine category at this year's ArcticNet conference for "Distinguishing physical and biological controls on the carbon dynamics in Nares Strait".
