‘Alder in the Arctic’

When two members of the expedition tested positive for Covid-19 on arrival in Alaska, this team were forced to alter their plans, relocating the planned site of their research from Umiat to the Yukon-Koyukuk Area in the sub-Arctic. Here the team sampled four tundra sites at varying altitudes, gathering data that will allow them to better understand the plant life of this rapidly changing environment.
